Had to take a little break from my 1/72 Harrier...it was so tiny it was starting to hurt my eyes!  lol  

 

I finally started back into it...

I primered it with army painter rattle can flat black and let it sit for a few weeks....

and this past weekend, I got the initial color coat down, and sprayed a coat of future on her before decals.  I probobly wont get back into it before the weekend, but next step is deckles...

Ok guys I completed another GB this morning and now have space and time to dedicate to this monster! Count me in with the 1/48 Italeri V-22 Osprey and here are the pics of me cracking it open. I have an entire shelf reserved in my display case for this bad boy once its complete. I look forward to joining in!

 

I've actually been working on this one too....as a What-if D Day invasion craft!

This weekend, I got the harrier all cleared, decaled, cleared, weathered and flat coated!

 

I almost was able to call her finished, when I remembered that the canopy had a nice seam down the middle.  so, off to Autozone I went to get some polishing papers and plastic polish.  took care of that seam real quick, but the PFG bath takes a bit to dry, so, aside from the canopy, my 1/72 Harrier is finished.  at least until I can get ahold of the Hasegawa 1/72 armament set....

Justin, after seeing yours I'm embarrassed to post this. Big Smile

As a reminder, I'm only using what's included in the basic starter set and using very basic tools.  Basically, going back to the basics.  I'm a little disappointed by the Humbrol acrylic paint supplied as it leaves a grainy finish. Vallejo Model Color it ain't!  I'm using a wet pallet and going with multiple thin coats. I think I've left my brush painting skills in 1985.

Hey Steve, 

I just finished a couple of builds for the Vietnam Aircraft GB, and I'd like to get in on this one next.

I was thinking about getting in with Italeri's AH-1Z.

Justin. it looks real good, what type of clear flat did you use?

Mopar. Back to painting 101, this by 2nd kit using Vajello products only. So far I like the stuff with some tweeking with some different thinners. The pilot looks pretty good under the circumstances. funny looking pilot diagram btw .

lastest pics.

O, fantastic choice, I have you down.

Justin & Nick, those Harriers are looking good!!! Both of you are already near the finish line!

Chad, you may think that you left your brush painting skills in the 80s, but that cockpit does not look bad at all. Especially since that is 1/72 I presume? Either that or you have some ginormous fingers... You’ll get used to those Humbrols acrylics. I’m really liking them myself.

I should be able to button my Harrier up this weekend.  Good timing too...I have a couple of builds I need to get started for the Forgotten war group build...

Finished up my harrier this weekend!

I actually got a lot done this weekend, a large mother's day brekky for the wife, lawn care, grocery shopping (what a clusterf%$&^#$ that is...) on saturday-for three hours-, a huge turkey dinner for Mother's day special request, as well as some bench time!

Along with my Harrier, I was able to get my 1/72 pilots painted for the Forgotten war group build, and I started my Cubscout Pinewood derby car (I'm the Cubmaster for our local pack...)for next february...

 

PICS!

My photbooth is starting to look a lot like a museum!  I need to get some shalves up, or something!

 

The pilots for the other GB:

one Soviet, one American

Beautiful Justin!, which pic do you want on the wall sir?

those pilots look the bomb! great work, as well as that 109. That's a derby car? Why didn't I have a cool Cubmaster like you growing up?

Way to go!! that AV-8 looks fantastic right down to the finish line.Toast

Those figures look awesome.

The Derby 109- interesting-no weights in the nose? maybe a tri  wheeler? great idea.

My AV-8 ran into some handling difficulties had to fix here is one pic before final pics.
