The Hun is Done

August 2, 2016 · in Aviation · · 18 Comments

This is the F-100D in scale. Completed model number six for the year. I started this one in March completing about 85% of the model when a few problems with kit frustrated me to the point of putting it aside. The misshapen nose finally started to bug me, the decals didn't fit quite precisely enough and the axles on both wing struts broke. However, after a few months away from it and nearing the end of summer vacation, I decided to "get 'er done."

  1. Well done, Scott, it's usually very satisfying to get something finished that you've had a few problems with. I can't comment on the shape of the nose, but it looks like a well finished model that's also nicely photographed.

  2. A real fine looking bird

  3. Great looking model Scott, I am pleased to see you left the panel lines alone, they look fine without any wash, what paints did you use?

  4. Well...despite the "trials and tribulations" mentioned, I sure can't see anything 'wrong' with it. Turned out very nicely - glad ya finished it! 🙂

  5. Job done. It looks very nicely finished.

  6. Very nice Hun. Love the classic lines of the F-100. You've achieved a nice finish on this one, and it's very colorful to boot! I've done one in SEA scheme, but have a Tamiya kit waiting to take on the NMF like the one my dad flew. I'm a bit skittish of NMF but practicing on a P-47 now to build up my nerve!

  7. Great job, nice natural finish.

  8. Nice F-100

  9. Smashing build, it all turned out good in the end! I like the yellow markings against the bare metal.
