Cockpit parts painted with an assortment of MM Enamels grays and blacks. Dry brushing done with MM Chrome Silver Enamel. Trim and other tiny details added with ultra fine point markers. Seat belts are painted masking tape.
Finished cockpits. Each had to have a bit of the side panels sanded off to fit inside the fuselage shells.
Fuselage front sections assembled and polished.
Fuselage rear sections assembled and polished.
Assembled - ready for the paint shop!
MM Glossy Black Enamel applied as primer for the Alclad Chrome! Three very shiny "Blackbirds"!!
Three Alclad Chromy birds!! On the left, for the Red Baron, uniform Shiny Chrome. Center, the Farrari, shinier chrome toward the rear, darker chrome toward the nose (not obvious in this pic due to lighting and shadows etc), . For the right hand one (the 9-99) Bright shiny chrome in the front, slightly darker (more black showing through) toward the rear. Chrome applied with H&S and 0.20 noz at 10 psi.
The Red Baron F-104 now sprayed with Gunze Clear Red! Note the "even" red hue from nose to tail (as a resuldtof the "even chrome density"!
The Red Ferrari F-104 now sprayed with Gunze Clear Red. Note the darker red (more like maroon) near the front, and lighter red near the tail caused by the chrome density variation from front to rear.
The 999 version. This has been sprayed with Tamiya Clear Red. Note the slightly orangyer shade of red and the lighter tone toward the nose and deeper tone near the tail due to the chrome gradient from nose to tail.
MM Flat White sprayed first followed by MM Gloss White.
