1/48 Italeri F-18E

Gallery Article by Yusof


This is my recently completed Italeri F-18E.  I cut away the The flaps and slats to reposition them in the down and deployed position.

For painting I used my modified Airbrush using testor paints.  The model was given a coat of future before decaling.  Then I gave it a light oil wash after the Future was dry and after after decaling.  

At this point I preshaded the panel lines with heavily thinned Gunze Acrylic (H342 oil)...slowly airbrushing until the shade slowly built up to what I wanted.

Then the model was dull coated with Testors Dull Coat and I was finished.

I hope you all enjoyed my "Superbug".
