Morning everyone – I hope that you are enjoying the snow!
As the year draws to a close I’m wrapping up some projects for work, the first being one of two F-18 Hornets that I’m dealing the with. This is one is my interpretation of the Academy 1:72 F/A-18C that I’ve upgraded with a superdetailed cockpit, resin seat, jetpipes and wings, all of which add to the candid look of the model – I think! The model was painted with Gunze Mr. Color lacquers and then weathered with oils and Humbrol enamels, all decals coming from the kit. The final additions were a couple of missiles from a Tamiya F-16…
I’ve tried to make what is a pretty bland scheme as interesting as possible and I’m now happy to move on to what will be a different and far cleaner scheme for my 1:48 build…
I hope you like it and stay warm! 🙂
Nice work! You have certainly added a lot of interest to a very grey scheme!
Lovely build Spencer on what is a really nice little kit.
Would love to see a video on your airbrushing/weathering techniques. Just saying😉
Good work. How do you highlight the panel lines?
The panel lines are all accentuated with a very thin mixture of Raw Umber oil paint and Humbrol Dark Grey, thinned with white spirit. It’s just enough to pop the panel lines without making it look overdone…
Does not look bland now, Spencer. You have captured it very well.
Thanks a lot! 🙂
