John, been there done that. Your Su-9 is looking good.

Thomas, nice job on the Mirage wheel wells.

Franck, Your F100 is coming along fine. I stayed away from the F100 because of the after burner area until I found some decals for an SEA F100 with the afterburner area painted also, and they arrived today. So I now am able to finish my F100.

Been awhile...

My Su-9 fell to the ground, still fixing it.



Took some time masking the canopy



Hope this week to add all the pylons and antennas and start painting it...

So nice builds in here, guys! As well as the new entries - glad to see this thread alive.

Redek, beautiful looking F-102, great! Congrats for finishing

Franck, good start! Pit looks very fine.

Didn't posted progresses in here for a while since I use the separate build log for my Mirage for more details.
So here's just a quick view of the current status. Stil lot of things to do, but for now the fiddling-styrene-work is mainly over.

The sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed part number 9, the exhaust cowling is MIA.

I had started to build the kit before I noticed the missing part.

So I went onto the Revell site to order a replacement part and they will not be dealing with any orders until 17th January!! It then goes on to say it can take up to 8 weeks for the replacement part to arrive.

So I guess i will not be building the Fishbed for this campaign. Plan B then.

Unfortunately there will be no plan B. I am having difficulty finding a suitable kit so I am afraid I will have to withdraw from this campaign. Keep up the good builds guys.

Hi guys,
I'm calling my F-102 done.
There were some small issues at the end with broken pitot tube (like 5 times ), a little crooked wheel or breaking some joints on fuel tanks or missiles... but it's finished.


Images area already in campaign gallery and here are few shots of finished kit:







Thank you for great campaign
Cheers,
Radek

PS. finally some kit completed from scratch to finish in 2017

Let's go for this campaign !

I submit for this campaign the F-100D. It would represent a F-100D Hun in vietnam armed with 4 M117 in daisy cutter configuration.

Hi,

F-102 is finally on it's wheels.

I've applied decals and followed with slight overall wash made of Tamiya paneliner brown and homemade wash from VanDyke brown.

I have also started final assembly that ended up with need to repaint some parts I've damaged with glue or by ... mistaking cup with mineral spirit for cup with Tamiya thinner ... oops.

Nevertheless I'm on final now with only few parts left to glue on.

Here's the state at the moment:




Cheers,
Radek

Thanks, I didn't notice at the time, but I didn't get the MLG even so it lists strongly to port....

Quoted Text

Stick a fork in this one. I'm calling it done. Some day I might want to go back and weather it. But for this campaign it's done.




Is there a campaign gallery I should load these to?



knowing what you had to work with I'd say that came out splendid!

Hi guys,
after a while I've managed to get some progress on F-102.

It's now all painted in 3-tonal camo.

Paints used:

Gunze H315 - Gray FS16440
Gunze H310 - Brown FS 30219
Gunze H309 - Green FS 34079
Gunze H303 - Green FS 34102

In addition White & Black from Tamiya to make some tonal variation.

Still need to make some retouches as the coverage isn't good in some places (you can see primer here and there).

Here are some pics:





Next I will correct remaining flaws in camo and then varnish seal for decals

CHeers,
Radek

Bob R(Bigrip74) Great looking build. You are braver than me to clean all your a/b's at once. Question, Where did you get the mounting system for your camera?.

Still great work on your kits, guys!

Meanwhile I managed to go a step ahead with my scratched parts...
More details here.

Hi guys,
great to see you guys moving forward with your builds! All those are state-of-art.
As for mine F-102 I hope I will stop making some stupid mistakes at some point of time...
The kit is a real charm and puts together almost like Lego blocks, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't screw something up.
So I made it up to joining fuselage with wings section (which includes undercarriage section and bomb bay). All joints were seamless, but after I glued it I probably bumped it too hard on desk before glue settled enough. In result the rear joint displaced a fraction of milimeter making a huge bump between parts... I didn't notice it until next day when it was already too late for easy fix.
I softened the gap with some melted plastic and sanded it like madman . Doesnt' look bad, but it will be visible for sure after finish...

Well, enough of this TLDR stuff
Two pics of current state:


On the last pic you can see sanded bump as darker plastic spot on fuselage just where the wings end.

Cheers,
Radek

Wow - There is some great modeling going on in this thread.

I'm a late starter, but have begun the Trumpeter 1/32 MiG-21F-13. Actually, this was started back on August 11 (I think), but am just now getting to post pictures of progress up to date.


I'm using a Pavla resin ejection seat, Kuovailainen (sp?) colored PE, and adding some plumbing details to the wheel wells. I'm not doing anything to the engine, as that - and all the other Trumpeter open panels...grrrr....- will be closed.


I'm not sure what color and markings I'm going to do. I have conflicting thoughts on Finnish Ilamvoimat (a) I would need to scratch some decals, and b) I don't see any pictures of service aircraft with weapons loads and I WANT WEAPONS), Vietnam (not finding much in the way of pictures for this either), or classic Soviet.

Enjoy!
-Tom
