AZmodel 1/48 F3H Demon - Finished!
Posted by Dave The Chef on Monday, November 09, 2009 4:32 AM
Hi guys, been working on this at the moment and it's nearly finished -

Using tamiya paints with Humbrol light gull grey, post shading and some of that Promodellers wash. Not an exactly straight forward kit but I'm getting there.
Cheers.

It might not be a straight forward kit but your results are looking good!

Now here's one we rarely see here!  Looking very good so far, especially the office.  Good and busy and the washes/drybrushing really brought the detail out.  Excellent! Thumbs Up [tup]

BTW... love the airbrush holder! Make a Toast [#toast]

Very nice work so far.  I much prefer the older aircraft that have some color to them over the current, "Gray over gray over gray with gray trim".

Cheers! I've got on the tailhook, engine nozzle, air brakes and the most 'do-your-head-in' undercarrige that I've ever had to install!


I managed to flake away some decals in the process too - god knows how - I'm not beaten yet though!

Going to leave it alone now before it gets smashed into little bitty pieces

Finished - yipee! :D
Enjoy -









Loads I like and the few that I don't (mainly my own cockups - forgetting to paint the inside of the canopy black and a couple of slips with the scriber on the underside) but I won't bore you moaning about them all here ;)

Must say thanks to Phil Juvet and Major Hinton for this webpage -http://www.philsaeronauticalstuff.com/f3h/f3h.html
This build would have been lost without these fine pictures as the instruction where pretty vague in a lot of places :)

Wow... how did I miss the finished Demon?

Excellent work on the old girl! Your painting and weathering is outstanding plus the cockpit looks beautiful.

Fine example all around... well done! Thumbs Up [tup]

Yeah I was beginning to think I had done something wrong or forgotten to do the secret FSM masonic handshake or something...

Stunning job Dave. I reckon its an art to get a plain grey scheme to look 'Busy' and i think youve nailed it.

If you hadnt have mentioned that youd had problems, looking at the build, id never had guessed. Top marks.
