1:72 Hasegawa F-20 Tigershark "What If" PoAf

Hello!

 

I would like to present my latest model.

Recovered from the dark corners of my workbench, this model was started a couple of years ago and as i lost the decal sheet, left it on the basis "I will resume it some day..."

 

The paint was completed removed using several grade sandpaper and polishing files and then a complete repaint using Gunze acrylics replicating the colour scheme for the F-16A from Portuguese Airforce (PoAF).

 

On the same way, identification marks and serial numbers were used from a Santa Cruz 1:72 decal sheet for PoAf F-16A.

 

With the paint and decal job completed, i started with the weathering process, using Oils to replicate some patches on the fuselage panels.

 

I wanted to test a greasy and dirt look on the gun hatches on the airplane's nose.

 

As this is a 1:72 bird i need to refrain myself, as i wanted a very "controlled" and weathered area.

 

This is the result.

 

It has several error that i didn't bother to correct, but above all, it is finished and i've learned some new tricks!
