Revell 1/35 Panzerhaubitze (Pzh) 2000 - WIP#2

biggrin.gifWhere is WIP#1?....
I'll get to posting it in a bit.. somehow i thought i've already posted it..but i didnt.. so enjoy WIP #2 first :o)biggrin.gif


Around of updates:

been a while since the last update and i got to the point of doing pin-wash.

The camo been painted freehand (was thinking of masking it, but thought i give freehand a try) with Nato Green (base color), Nato Brown and Flat Black (just because i didnt have Nato Black in stock - shame on me!!).

i didnt take the step by step photo (forget all about it) but only manage to take what you see here..

Before i decal i spray a very diluted Nato Green on the camo, as i read somewhere that this helps to blend all the camo color to the base color... to my untrained eyes.. it actually makes a difference... (to my eyes it should.. anyway..)

Decal also already on the tank, not many decal were used and it goes on the model with no problem with the help of Mr Setter & Mr Softer on a clear coat H30 from gunze.

After all the decal, i spray a layer of Clear coat again to seal the decal in and ready the surface for the next step.. pin-wash ( i think this is what they called) using the Tamiya Panel wash (brown/black) or maybe using a normal oilpaint mix with turps...

1. pinwash
2.a coat of flat (seal the wash)
3. Dot filtering (again i dunno if this is what being called, where you dot the surface with oil paint of various color and use turps to blend it in)

Until next update

p/s: also i'm in the midst of priming something Swedish tonite as well. biggrin.gif

Trumpeter 1/32 A-10 2-seater N/aw - Completing It- W.I.P #1

It's very rare that someone pass to you his whole stash for you to finish it... and i'm one of the lucky few that was given an opportunity to owned such a stash..

i received around 20 boxes of kits in various conditions and scales and one of those is this BIG A-10A N/AW (2-seater tank in the sky) - (also a single seater A-10, that is for another time :o) )

my friend had joined the fuselage and have all the part glued together... but the cockpit are not in the fuselage yet.. so my task is to get it inside without much the needs for extensive surgery.

Lucky for'll be easy to do so without much surgery... i guess.

A-10 kit is known for its tail-sitting-ness..

this one is no exception... so after using 15 of these fishing weight.. i manage to get it to sit properly.

and the amount of fishing-weight i use in the fuselage..

and cover it with some sticky stuff..

next will be the ejection seat :)

Trumpeter CH-47A Chinook Helicopter - WIP#2 (paints)

Been busy as of late.. but need to get this done as the resolution for the new year is to built more, 

Again this will be due in March 2015 for the the Transport GB.

Been a while so i've completed the priming process and now moving on to pick the color to paint. I choose to paint the yellow and the orange first and masked it before i start with the Olive-Darb.

on to the photos laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

The orange is the mix of Tamiya Yellow & Red and i clear coat the paint to protect it from peeling when i lift the mask later..

I guess i better get going and paint those olive-drab  pretty soon..

Panda Models 1/48 X-35B (Prototype) - Completed

Happy new year 2015 to everyone!!!
and i start the new year with a completed build for my Panda Models F-35B (X-35B)

It was abandoned in several stages over the past few years... i think i started this back in 2007-2008... 

i remember halt the build after surfacer treatment... after painting.. and also after decalling... and a few months (or even years even) in between those stages..

This a very old build that have seen the inside of the box countless time.... and finally after so many years i manage to finish it due to a motivation by a Campaign held by the "Unfinished Business Campaign"

Review of the kit can be viewed from

The mandatory box art..

Finished this a few weeks back but only manage to upload it here now..

I'll do a summary of my completed build for year 2014 later and what year 2015 holds for me is still unknown... but i sense a water related build for year 2015.. :D

enjoy for now..
