Official Natural Metal Finish Group Build II

  • The first group was so much fun we just gotta do it again, so WELCOME to round II.

    Rules

    Any aircraft finished with foil, paint, or what ever else you use for a natural metal finish. The model should be at least 30% NMF. Any scale would be fine, prop, jet, or helicopter as long as it flies. You can use all the aftermarket stuff you would like or build  OOB. Cross overs would be fine and partial starts, carry overs from the first group will be allowed also. WIP pictures are a must so we can build our skills, and they are losta fun to share. This will be a 1 year long build starting May 2 2010 and ending May 1 2011. So build 1 or 2 or more. And feel free to take a badge when you sign up, gotta give it back if you don't finish though.

    The goal of the group is to have fun, build some fine looking models, and to learn something new.

    Sign me up with a 49% completed Trumpeter 1/32 scale P-51 D Looking forward to another successful GB!

    Resin replacement wheels came in the mail last week, the kit is put away for now yet I have new inspiration now that NMF II is going to start soon. When I get a chance I will post a picture comparing the wheels, really no comparison accept for anyone interested in the kit.

    Richard,

    How about a B-29 Superfortress in a smaller scale with Soviet markings depicting the ones copied by Stalin? They even left the cast 'Boeing' into the foot pedal controls. Just a thoughtIdea

  • Vetteman,

    Can you put me down for a Tamiya 1/48 P-47D depicting the Kansas Tornado and a Hasegawa 1/48 F-86F?

    These will be my first NMF models so I look forward to participating and learning.

  • IBuild148 Your builds are in and welcome to the shiny side. Have you decided what method you will use for your NMF ?

    Randy So many to build.......So little time

  • Yes!

    After searching the FSM community, the current GB NMF and a post that I placed back on 20 April, ( Thanks to Julez72, fermis, plastickjunkie,rjkplasticmod, bondoman,wing nut, and  Hans von Hammer) I will base coat them with Gloss Black and then top off with Alclads Aluminum Lacquer's.

    I am looking forward to learning more from those that are versed in this process so I can deliver some positive results to this GB!

    Pics to follow!

  • Randy - Would you mind if I join in with a cross build? I plan on building Lindberg's old XF-91 Thunderceptor for the Rocket power Group Build that starts May 1. There's going to be lots of scratch building, rescribing and swearing going on so it should be a fun kit to put together! Stick out tongue  I would love to join in if it's okay!

    I think you're going to like the Alclad paint. I did my first full NMF with the stuff and it sure made a believer out of me. Yes

  • Randy, sign me up buddyYes i'll do another Tam 1/48 P-51...I have the decals for Grim Reaper from the 9th AAF.. Another first again with this build, "invasion stripes"......

    Possible Hasegawa 1/48 Canadair Sabre, West German Luftwaffe, Hartmans mount... But that will be in the new year....

     

     

     

  • Jmabx & Julez72 Glad to have you both back with us, your builds are most defiantly  in and on the roster.

     

    Randy So many to build.......So little time

  • ...them glue fumes gettin to you again ?

    LOL. Always...Whistling Nah, just my dorky way of bein funny.

    Ok, i've consulted my other half (girlfriends are great non-biased help in picking out your next builds) and she chose a B17 over a P51. So you can put me up for Revell's (of germany) 1/48 B17.

    Rivet counters amongst us should now avert their eyes as it is a B17F.... They never really were painted in NMF untill the G version came out but methinks it will look cool anyways. Nobody will accuse me of being too focussed on absolute accuracy. Hey, its a hobby innit?WinkYes Might even slap together some custom decals for it, dunno yet

    Can't waitEats
