J35 Draken 1/144 (F-Toys + Shelf Oddity)

This is gashapon kit, stripped of the paint and repainted using Vallejo and Hataka Blue Line paints. It also served as test article for prototyping the PE set (see stuff).

F-Toys kits are absolute gems. I've seen many of them and still wonder why are they treated as such underdogs. High quality, wide range of subjects (who else does F-100, F-105, F-106, F-35, all the japanese IIWW air force, properly shaped MiG-29...?) , ease of construction, good price... About the only weak point of those kits are the canopies - an issue easily rectified by growing selection of Hauler - Brengun vac transparencies.

  1. Unique paint scheme...I like it. If you've done those Century series a/c, I'd love to see 'em. 🙂

  2. Outstanding paint job in this scale!

  3. Excellent paint work.

  4. How did you strip the paint? I tried „the usual subjects“ but failed...

    • Hi Thomas. I used Wamod acrylic paint stripper. It worked well on this one, however on other F-Toys - MiG-17 the effects was patchy. I also tried Gunze Leveling Thinner, but with dissapointing effect. The CA glue dissolver/debonder is yet another option but I am yet to test it.
