Bandai 1/72 TIE Interceptor Part 1

The next build will be the Bandai 1/72 TIE Interceptor. I picked this kit up a while ago and did an inbox review of it at that point. Looking forward to building it up. The first order of business is figuring out what color I wanted to paint it. There have been many discussions across the internet a...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

A coat of Vallejo satin and I'm calling it done. I have to admit I found the tail end of the project very challenging. The landing gear doors were the most troublesome I have encountered. The overall fit is less than ideal and you can tell it was an older Airfix molding. https://farm2.staticflickr.c...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Landing gear is now on. Landing gear doors are proving a bit troublesome which means one or two are placed then wait for it to set.

I have to admit I'm looking forward to this one being done.

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Decided just before I put decals on, the color was still a bit too dark. Put a light mist coat of 80% thinner and 20% XF-59 Desert Yellow on. Looks much better. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/944/40310791400_98ed399d09_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr Gloss coat tomorrow then decals.

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Gloss coat is on, now onto decals. Using a set of Model Alliance Tornado decals. I'm going to do it up as an aircraft of 617 Sqm, based at Incirlik AB, Turkey as part of Operation Jural in 1992. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/976/40301259720_e4969fb49b_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

I did a very light coat so it actually looks slightly lighter on the top surfaces which duplicate the weathering effects of the desert sun. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/827/27176048667_44bb254ae6_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Fli...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

The next morning I took a look at the results and I still wasn't happy with the color as it turned out. I dropped by my local hobby shop, Broughdale Hobby to see what I can find among the other colors available. I bought a bottle of Vallejo Model Air 026 US Flat Brown. From what I see it has a sligh...
