Trumpeter 1/72 North American F-100D Super Sabre

Post by Seamus »

Evening all,

It's four down, one to go for my 48FW theme build, following the completion of this Trumpeter 1/72 F-100D. My second Super Sabre of the year, it was just as largely trouble free as the first with no real pitfalls as far as fit is concerned. I added an Aires exhaust I found in the stash whilst the decals are from an Xtradecal sheet- I believe the gate guard at RAF Lakenheath wears the same markings. Finished using Alclads mostly- I used dull aluminium to represent the silver paint used on the bulk of the airframe, with the centre panels of the wings and tailplane sprayed in a slightly darkened tone. The exhaust area was finished in a range of metallic and hot metal colours over an aluminium base. Much happier with the results here compared to my previous build.

All that remains to complete the project is a GWH F-15C....

Thanks for looking, comments welcomed as always

Lovely model. I am forever impressed by the rate at which you finish them and the quality you achieve. I tend to get stuck on the same one fro ages. Just tried hataka orange line though - what a pleasure to paint with! Will be moving gradually over to them form acrylics.

Thanks chap, much appreciated. Switching to Hataka is the main reason for my increase in productivity- I can now paint an entire model in a day or two rather than a week or two when I was using enamels. They're a revelation! The only slight weakness I've found is they can lift with masking tape when applied to bare plastic, but it's simple enough to prime everything to negate that.
