Nice job!

Whats the colour manufactures name i use humbrol paint when i build models and have always problem with the silver paint,it looks like sh.T afterwards when the model is done.I used to put a protective laque over it sometimes to test if that helped but it always ends up like ****.And i have problems to get the decals too stick on silver paint too dont know why.
I havent built a model in silver now for quit some time.
Any tips ?

Excellent job. What metal polisher are you using ?
I have used Testors metals and Humbrol metal cote, but they do not look the same.. this is more realistic ( or perhaps I just do not know how to use them properle )

It's a lovely job, but your model wants some ageing work, if you don't mind my saying so.

S!

Bare metal looks great! Did you use a buffing metalilzer or did you use real aluminum foil wrap? Amazing the new materials they have available to modelers for creating real bare metal finishes. What ever you used it wasn't normal paint. I love the big scale stuff.

Hi,

Nice model! How long did it take to build it?

Also, is that table from Ikea?

Cheers,
Norris

use alclad 2 laquer, follow the directions, and do not use a sealer, none required for this type of paint

i thought about weathering it, but the one you see in the game isnt to beat up, and i went off of a screenshot for the paint job, plus the finish was so shiny, i didnt want to scuff it up, but thank you!

Nice work. We need more stuff like these -- models with FB paintschemes. I always see FB skins modeled after kit paintschemes but rarely the reverse.
