KI-43 Oscar by Javlin - Hasegawa - 1/32-Finished


Javlin

Recommended Posts

I have started the next build and cannot leave will enough alone.....I have already started cutting the for the rockers because none of them made it to the top of the cylinder head.I will be replacing with .030" plastic rod to weras I drill the crankcase slip the new rod(long) into the crankcase and slide it up to the rocker and glue.I think I will be adding ignition wires while I am at it just to hide it all behind the oil cooler behind the prop :P so goes it.I want a slightly different scheme than what the box depicts something from the 50th Sentai or the 59th Sentai with the blue which I have to paint no biggee.The old build of the Oscar is the same kit maybe 25yrs ago maybe longer!;) Kevin

The Bottom mottled green over olive is particularly attractive.....

 

The upper one is more colorful though...

 

Both would be beautiful when done......

Nice choice Kevin, I'm in for this one!

 

I like the bottom one as something a little more unique but certainly more challenging.  The top one is definitely a nice look as well.

I have a friend (Brian Criner) who has done some amazing finishes on Japanese aircraft. After he pre-shades his panel lines, he sprays the aluminum undercoat followed by a coat of Futura floor wax, and finally the topcoat. Then he uses crumpled cellophane tape to randomly chip the finish. It is very convincing.

 

This is one of his models.

Maybe a little depressing for us mortals, but certainly something you could try if you are handy with an airbrush.

So that looks real for the Japanese their paint just did not stick I take he using enamel over the future to help in the lift? I used acrylic over the enamel and that stuff was just to hard to chip.;)

Sadly, I don't know the answer to that question. But if you google his name on the usual plastic forums, e.g. FineScale Modeler, he's probably got it described in more detail somewhere.

 

Edit: Here is one such article.

I wondered what that was. I saw it in my card model version, but of course the instructions are all in Polish.

Not 100% on that Chris but having been in the auto industry for 40 years it's a pretty educated guess lots of air in that area.;)

The fuse is drying as I type their was no decals for the IP so a light coat of silver and four drops of future on on each dial for the lens.The seat belts are Brit and 1/48 scale and the satchel on the right side is PE 1/48 also looks the part typical Hase copit a little sparse.The wings and tailplanes have already been glued and sanded as well as the wheels kind of boring stuff so no pics but she should really start moving now.;) Kevin

Tamiya panel accent liner (I assume this is the wash you refer to) goes over the Tamiya gloss. If you apply it on matt finish, it will not run and it will get absorbed by the roughness of the paint and it will not get removed anymore. But note that it is not acrylic solvent based (otherwise it would dissolve the base color). It can be removed by its specific solvent or turpentine (white spirit). Basically, it works as an oil color wash.

Please try it out on a sample before.

Dan.

Got it Dan I have used just it just been a while and thought clean up was turpentine thks again.You can see now which plane is going to be the finished product.I started with a semi-gloss black base,SnJ AL,Japanese Sky Grey and I am now on the Pale Green a very thin coat as the grey.The camo folds under on the outer wing edges will tape off and respray the grey when I do the yellow ID wing bands.I say acrylic's are a PIA going through my Badger Renegade after the PG I ran Tamy acrylic thinner,ammonia,alcohol and two doses of turpentine.The cleaning may seem excessive but I lost one Badger a few years back after acrylics having forgot to clean it all together and came back 24hrs later lock up tighter than a drum.If I had thought about it would of soaked it in ammonia would of done the trick But that's one reason I use alot of enamels I have done that 24hr deal and it sprayed and I cleaned it.

Got the camo laid pictures show me I need to creep a little more to the yellow ID band area.I almost thought I would have to repaint the r/wing but all came out methinks I would make irregular dots all over then go back and connect them with the gun running the whole time till I felt it looked pretty much like the profile.;) Kevin

 

Tomorrow the yellow bands,anti-glare and the wheel wells with tomorrow night I start the future.

Amazing work Kevin!  Very nice job, wow!

 

Can I ask - what size needle are you using in your airbrush?  I have a few kits in the stash with a mottled type of camo, and have been wondering if I need one of those micro-sized airbrushes.

I have my Badger Renegade set up with a fine tip up close I say 1/16" line it's my primary gun.I have two others I bought as a kit (Badgers) one gravity feed and the other siphon with medium on the gravity big areas.;)

Thks after the post I went and laid down a little more paint filled in some areas looks better to me atleast I think once the decals happen and possibly some weathering it will be close to the profile.;)

It looking real close to the profiles Hase had the just the green blotches here and there and I have pulled that off on a KI-45 but I hand painted it and when you start to paint one of these you do it in one sitting.You see when do half of the plane and come back the next day something about your mood has changed and so does your artwork at least from my experiences.;) Kevin

I agree, I did that white winter luftwaffe camo once on a captured Gloster Gladiator, you know the rlm light grey with the dark grey/black squiggly lines all over it?  Had to do it in one sitting, just something changes when you do it in two sessions, they never look the same...... or better put, they look the same but they just don't feel the same, others can tell the difference.....
