AZmodel 1/48 F3H Demon - Finished!

  • 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.

  • Beautiful job!
  • 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.

    Yeah I was beginning to think I had done something wrong or forgotten to do the secret FSM masonic handshake or something...
  • Yeah, really nice work.

    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]

  • 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 :)
  • 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
  • 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".

  • Thanks very much guys. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long before I have this one done.
  • overall great work!! Thumbs Up [tup]

    You pay contributions for the white worker with airbrush?

     

  • Nice indeed, and an interesting subject.

  • I can't wait to see her all finished. Gorgeous plane! Don't think I've seen this one built before. Thumbs Up [tup]

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