Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

That’s another off the bench; Not a bad finish considering the kit was rescued from the Shelf of Doom but I have been punished on this one as I didn’t achieve a good enough gloss finish, which means air has been trapped underneath some decals and resulted in them ‘silvering’ so that’s as far asContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

It’s taken a while but all the stencil decals have finally been applied to the model; Originally I wasn’t going to bother putting the stencils on the underside but AMS (Advanced Modellers Syndrome) said otherwise. All I need to do is give it another layer of gloss varnish to seal the decals in then IContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

The decal process is still ongoing…. I think I’m about halfway through and to cut the time down I’ll leave off most of the underside stencils as unless the model is going to be picked up nobody will see them anyway. Meanwhile I had a stack of kits turn up this week to review forContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

Just to try and get my mind focussed on modelling again I’ve decided to start decalling the F-104G. I’m using the Astra decals (an off-shoot of Daco) and they are going on very nicely, unlike the HaHen ones on the Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28 which were not stellar. So far I have put the mainContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

With yet another dismal day weather-wise here in the UK and zero chance of spraying the Porsche 934, I’ve got on with spraying the Hasegawa F-104G; For the dayglo panels, the fuel tanks were masked off then sprayed first with Tamiya XF-2 White then XF-3 Yellow followed by Vallejo Model Air Flourescent Red. I normallyContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Masking a Starfighter

I’ve decided that the Dornier 28 will need repainting due to the Hataka acrylic not looking too good so I’ll try and match some Mr Hobby or Tamiya to RAL 7035. With that to one side I started masking the Hasegawa Starfighter; This will be sprayed with Tamiya later today and to celebrate another tripContinue reading “Masking a Starfighter”
