I’ve stucked with heavy work for severel month and cannot build new thing in this days. I think I almost have withdrawal symptoms with this.
Anyway I’ll continue presenting my old catalogues of couple of years.
I build every aircraft of all era. I’m not so interest of sky-war history but I’m fascinated of flying things. everything successfully formed and shaped to split air has an irresistible beauty.
And this P-38 Lightning from Lockheed is one of art of opera in that kind of view.
the Kit is Academy’s 72th one. more than 70% of my build is Academy’s because it’s from my country and obviously it’s much cheaper here in Korea. I can tell Academy’s WWII wings in 72th offers much better than its price. its just perfect choice for beginner who want practicing without burden just like me.
I’ve done this just for 3 days. the silver is Duplicolor’s Chrome lacquer spray. it’s easily give a brilliant effect of silver. and I used tamiya’s acrylic for weathering. acrylic paint is usually not used for weathering because it is hard to remove after dried. but on metallic surface is not adhesive well.
Put some weathering color on silver surface and wait until it drys(no more than 5min), then wipe out with cotton swab. In this case you have great vantage; you don’t have to clear coat on your shine metallic surface. because acrylic paint or thinner doesn’t effect with that.
Then silver lightning is done. that quickly.
later, I’ve noticed that one propeller is slant while taking photo. please just ignore that.
