To tell you the truth Stik, as long as there is some differential in the overall look of the model if I was a judge and not monochromatic, it would surely score points with me!!! You have done that very well!!!! ToastYes

1005, a good number...

I am done painting the NMF. I used three different shades of Aluminum. Humbrol overall first, a nice weathered dull dark shade, then I masked off and used Tamiya, a much brighter shade on the center of the wings, stabilizers, tail, and some select panes on the front and rear fuselage. Then I used Testors small bottle, a shade in between the two, on the elevators, ailerons, drop tank pylons, rudder, and two panels on the nose. The effect I was trying for was like the old Chromed Hawk kits I used to build. The effect did not photograph well, but is quite visible in person.

Today I added a second shade of aluminum on my Thunderjet on selected panels. I masked off more panels to do a third shade for tomorrow. I will roll my F-84 over to the NMF Pt II Group Build since this one is over and I am still chugging along. I will post pics tomorrow or Sunday at the latest.Cool

Back to back mustangs is fine, but I wouldn't recommend doing 9 at the same time.

What better way to finish this GB than with 1000 replies

Ditto

Randy, i am glad you got me to participate. Building shiny planes is amongst the things in modeling i like to do most and each and every time i visit the LHS there's always attention for anything that would be eligible for "the group".Wink

Hi Randy,

I was hoping carry-overs to round 2 would be okay -- my F-84 is back at the top of the stack again after I got two armour builds done with. I have a few planes to give some TLC in the weeks ahead, and that should be one of them.

For NMF II I have a ProMod F-86D, and I'm thinking about a C-97 cargo plane in 1:144.

Cheers, M/TB379

I have that concern myself. I don't want to add to much weight to avoid adding extra stress. As all my build are for dios and i always glue the plane to stop them moving around on the board, i don't know why i even bother trying. Old habits i guess. 

Its been a really great GB, some awsome work from you guys, and as always a pleasure to learn from. 

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so

And yes, it is a tail sitter. I usually glue my planes down when i put them on the dio, so that won't be a problem. Thanks again, and a great GB.

Bish,

Sometimes I wonder if that is not a better solution to the 'tail sitting' problem. Adding weights in the nose just adds stress to a all ready delicate front landing wheel. Anyhow your Mig turned out great and a nice finish to vetteman42s successful group build!YesCool

Thanks guys, much appreciated. Afraid i will have to pass on round two as i am off to the falklands later today and won't be back to modelling until Sept.  I now have 7 Dio's to catch up on so that will be my priority. But i will deffinatly be doing some more NMF next year and will watch round two while i am away.
