Its been a while since i last update my Work In Progress in here.
For this round its a 1/48 Academy F-15E with weapon aircraft.
This build will be placed under: 1/48 Academy F-15e label
and also will be in my site: Kumanworks.com when its done :o)
The construction started back in May 2016 and after a few session of build now i'm at the final stage before the decal. So below i share some of the photos the construction process up to where i'm now.
The build is straight forward, after the Surfacer 1000 treatment, i begins with the painting of the exhaust silverish steps. The way i paint it:
1. Gloss black (i use Tamiya)
2. Gaianotes Bright Silver
Also at this step, i start my newbie pre-shades.. not too sure how much will be visible after the painting process later.
Then i masked off the silver part to proceed with the general paint steps.
for this kit, the canopy have a nasty seamline that need to be take care off... so i proceed to sand it off and the polish it up with Tamiya polishing compound and a dip into Future, its done.
