F6F-3 Hellcat Eduard Weekend 1 /48

Hola a todos!
Después de bastante tiempo sin publicar en i Modeler, por fin he terminado este modelo. Es un Hellcat que he montado al mismo tiempo que estoy dando un curso de pintura sobre este avión.
No ha sido un modelo complicado de montar, pero me ha llevado mucho tiempo pintar y aplicar weathering. He utilizado pinturas de Mr Hobby, y Tamiya. Para el weathering he utizado productos de AK, Ammomig, y óleos.

5 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. wow!!! felicitaciones! mui bueno!
    That is, Wow, congratulations! very good 🙂
    Although at first it seems a litle over weathered, this aspect complies to the pacific service over salty waters.
    Congratulations

  2. I don’t think it’s “over-weathered”, either. Cleaning and polishing aircraft during wartime was probably not near the top of the priority list. I like it very much. 🙂

  3. Nice work Lucas, operating off coral base airstrips for any period of time produced heavy weathering.

  4. Se ve muy sucio y gastado – me gusta! 🙂

  5. Just wow! Brillant weathering.

  6. Hi all. Thank you all for the comments. I tried not to spend in the weathering. I believe, however, that on the upper surfaces of the wings there should be something more wear

  7. Actually, the reason they went to Glossy Sea Blue was that the paints in the tri-color scheme did weather badly in the salt-air environment aboard ship in the Pacific. I have read descriptions of the paint on the airplanes at the end of a six month deployment as “looking like chalk.” So just consider that this represents the airplane at a period around September/October 1944, after deployment in the high tide of the Central Pacific campaign (March-October 1944).

    Very nice work here.

  8. A very nice looking Hellcat! Looks road hard and put up wet!

  9. Nice bird! First thought, I wouldn´t have dented, scratched and dirtied a shipborn plane so intense, BUT (after little research) considering this Hellcat was detached to the dirty, dusty, hot, Pacific winter sun burned remote airstrip of Ondonga your weathering is surely not overdone.
