    Good to see you again, Yuki!:)

    Is this a scratch build, one you designed yourself?
    If a kit, can you tell us which one?

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Nice work scaling down the Blackjack. Were the engines scratch built? I don't remember seeing the blades in my kit, but its under a ton of junk (spring house cleaning and rearranging things) and temporarily lost.

    In any case, it should be a nice model when completed. I can't wait to see it.

    NYC Irish, it seems to me a plastic modeller technique. It's used to stress the panel lines. In plastic models, panel lines are usually engraved. If, prior to paint the entire model with the final color, you follow each panel line with another colour (metal in this case, but it could also black, for example), the following overall painting will be much less "flat" and more real life-like, expecially if you paint with airbrush and don't completely cover the underneath colour.

    Correct, in the "other world", they are calling it pre-shading the panel lines. In the olden days, you would use a thinned paint wash to accent the lines. As techniques progressed, chalks came into play. Now, pre shading the all the rage.

    Maybe call them plasties?

    工作忙碌沒什麼進度....

    [​IMG]

    花了很長一段時間,總算把機頭打磨好了...

    [​IMG]

    發現機尾很重,很不專業地塞一堆鉛....

    [​IMG]

    機頭總算上去了,這個難搞,因為零件都不合......

    [​IMG]

    由另一個角度看....

    [​IMG]

    之前用噴筆噴實在很累,考慮成本過後似乎噴罐比較化算,於是買了一罐雙星噴罐

    每次進模型店都逃不過出血的命運...又多了一盒收藏品,買的速度永遠比做的速度快....

    tip for your experience..............

    Hi yukiyuji,

    I feel a very big passion in your work and your pics !! So I want to give you a tip:
    glue the formers on cardboard of about 0.5 or 1mm thickness before assembling.
    That makes your framework more solid.

    For example I show you an image of my F-117, the framework was very complex and impossible without reinforcing by cardboard, have a look:

    best regards FLU
