I finished up on my Zero today. It is OOB with kit decals with the exception of PE seat belts. It is weathered with pastels oils and silver pencil. The hasegawa zeros are still nice in this scale. Now on to something else either a Phantom FGR.2 or a Smer Fulmar, I am still trying to decide! Hope that you enjoy this one.

Thanks,Geoff

Great paint job. I like how you kept the chipping and weathering to a minimum. Well done!

I dont like excessive chipping and all of the images I had of this aircraft did not show it. I am glad you liked it.

Very, very nice model.

And the photography is good too.

I'm planning an FGR.2 Phantom in the near future as well. (Althougha fulmar in 'American' markings has been on the short list too... so many kits, so few lives.)

Cheers,

Excellent build

That looks just awesome - sharp thin canopy frames - subtle weathering - and great choice of markings, they look mighty sharp as well

I agree on the Hase Zero - still nice kits

Meatballs!!!

Geoff that is a nice looking Zero!, I love the paint and subtle weathering. Is that pre-shading?

On the shots from the top it can easily pass for larger scale!!!

Hi Jose...

May 27 2012, 12:50 AM 


Actually this is post shading, I dont like to pre shade as I am not sure I can pull that technique off especailly in 1/72+. I like to spray the base coat and then add different greys or lighter colors to that and post shade. My finishes are the result of many different variations of the base coat. I find it easier in 1/72 for me. I am glad that you liked it.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
