Zhengdefu 1/48 EF-111A Raven: One scary kit (WIP#2) - painting done..

In the name of progress.. i continue..

completed the paint job on the fuselage and continue masking the "wing-glove-thing" (i really dont know what its called)..

Next to take the mask-off and clear coat... to make it ready for the panel shading-masking-process.... need to break the monotonous of the grey on the fuselage... no reference just some random panel i guess....

most likely will use darker shade of grey on the wings...

until later

U-Boat Type XXI U-2540 (WIP #8) - Rigging?

moving on with the build....
The rest of the WIP can be viewed HERE..

was on and off doing this in between painting my EF-111..

rigging was done with a fine wire taken from my defunct notebook charger adapter wire.. easily controlled and looks the part.. i guess.. biggrin.gif

now i know that its hard taking photo of the riggings..

 will paint the rigging black... and still a few more raw sienna treatment needed before i can clear coat this and call it done...

ohh.. still need to find the relevant badge for the unit to make a nameplate for this build.

until later

Helicopter Magazine: Issue #3 : With Chinook die-cast helicopter

I'm not really a big fan of diecast model (although i do have some in my collection). but upon seeing this big Chinook helicopter in my local bookstore... i couldn't resist...

with Issue #3 this slim-pamphlet covers a quick information about Chinook.. its evolution... anatomy...Flying the chinook... etc..

As for the model.. i find the camo is a bit weird but as it turns out the camo does exist (as mentioned in the issue).. its from Boeing Chinook HC1 ZA707/EV of Nos 7/18 Squadrons, RAF, 1991 based at Al Jubail airbase Saudi Arabia.

i would buy another issue if the model is as big as this Chinook.. again.. i have to wait and see the complete line up of the offered model.... from what i can see from the magazine.. Issue #4 would feature an Apache helicopter... oh forgot to mentioned.. all the model is at 1/72 scale...

until the next issue... (if the model is big) :o)

Zhengdefu 1/48 EF-111A Raven: One scary kit (WIP#1)

As the title suggested.. this is one scary build of mine...
very scary...

First.. the box ...
Let me laugh.gif first... !!
another typical Zhengdefu kit coming from me.
this another one of those early kit i bought over at the local supermarket when i started this scale modelling back another 6-7 years ago...

surprisingly.. not much issue in putting this together some other modeler find a warped tail fin but mine just ok.. no issue... but becareful when joining the cockpit area-fuselage to the main fuselage.. a big step there but in my case its already too late.. i should have join the front fuselage to the main fuselage before combining the top and the bottom half.

IIRC i started this way back in the days...way way way back... when i started scale modelling... (did i mentioned way-way-way-way back)

Since the decal is unusable.. i bout a AM decal from XtraDecals (more photos below..)
