This will be my second build for this GB. I'm hoping to do something a little different with this one

You won't see much of this build but I've started it, got the fuselage together and painted the engine

Oh I like that


I'm the same don't have any bad habits ( well the wife, but she's in the package ) if you know what I mean.


I personally think it's an age thing. When I was 18 I could do 12 pints, now we go out and all I drink is diet coke or tea

I have done other things to this one but I don't want you to see just yet, that's why you only get head on shots. But all will become clear on Easter Sunday.

Heard good things about those paints but never used them. Be interested to see how you get on with them Ian.
I'll let you know how I get on with them Graham.

Ok I've used this paint for the fist time today, the first thing I found out is that the bottle comes with a ball bearing inside to help with mixing the paint when shaking it. It also say's its airbrush ready but I find it to be rather thick and needs thinning. But once that's done it covers very nicely indeed.image.jpeg



This is what I've done so far, got the underside painted light blue and the yellow on.

Nice work Ian , the Hataka paints look good , (I havent used mine yet either!) did you use their thinners to spray ? I didnt realise they had a ball bearing in them , to be honest I havent had them out of the box since we got them last october!! One other thing , what did you use for the yellow ? it looks to have covered really well , a colour i always find tricky no matter who's paint I use. cheers tony

Thanks Tony.


Yes I did use their thinners, and as for the Yellow I used Vallejo yellow 71002 in my usual way. After painting the light blue I masked the area I need yellow then painted it white, then when dry I misted 4 coats of the yellow on letting each coat dry before I sprayed the next.

The new Mig Ammo paints all come with ball bearings. Still not convinced they help much but they have to be better than nothing. Looking great Ian, that yellow really looks solid.
