F/A-18A “Blue Angels”, 1/72 Academy
These shiny acrobatic team aircraft suddenly took my attention after I finished Red Arrows Hawk. and This is my recent build, US Navy’s Blue Angels Hornet.
I brushed all with Tamiya’s acrylic blue. just because I wanted to try brushpaint before my first airbrush set arrives. First I brushed with Blue but color was too dark. and I brushed over with Clear Blue paint. this left a bit of stain but it gave more deeper and bright color. this color gives me feeling like watching deep sea and I really liked it.
I think this is something more than spraying “blue angels blue” paint all over.
and urethane spray for industrial use is still used for this. working superb still.
1/72 hornet is another fine kit of Academy’s. and this blue angels have cartograf’s decal. In the photo, every yellow parts are decal. even in wingtip, I put the decal first and painted the rest with acrylic yellow. what a quality!
My next acrobatic aircraft build may be Korean “Black Eagles”. they have really nice black and yellow color scheme.
