Here you go sir ^^ Revell Kit + 2 GBU from academy's bombcat, 1/48 ^^ enjoy, i'll try and dig up picks from my other whifs. just a word about the camo. I got inspired after seing Spain used an old Navy Agressor f-18 and decided the Navy had tested the eurofigther in a near future. It got repainted and then sent back to spain, where it remained unchanged ^^












Dude! Thanks for posting the pics!  :wub:
Brotherhood of the Rafale, I like the sound of that!  
Here's a little something I found for the Brotherhood... :o

hi guys,

i'm back after moving, studying a lot and taking some vacation ^^ this is the good news, the bad news is that I can't seem to finish any kit these days. I'm really good at starting them, so i thought I posted some picks of where I stand, and hopefully this will give me the courage I need to finish one one of these days ^^

enjoy dudes, I promise I will keep you posted on my builds, as soon as they evolve :)

a couple of f-32 for the NSAWC




an upcoming rafale D


a yak-38 for somewhere in africa, weapons are done




a c-27 for turkmenistan


a j-10 for Zaire


and a f-15 for South Rhodesia


that's it for now, i'm hoping to finish one soon :) and don't worry, there are a lot more where those came from, but not yet cleared to get their picture taken :D

C U guys later :)

Digital Airbrush?

Where did you get the airbrush that you can program to spray on a "digital camo" pattern like that??  ;D

HOW THE 'ELL DID YOU DO THAT??? I scanned the pattern and found ONE that repeated (circled). So did you do all those by individual stencil, by hand, or decal??? Either way, what a triumph of paintwork!!



Fabulous!! :thumbsup:

ton answer your question, the entire pattern is repeating itself (more or less) and this was done with paint and a lot of tape ^^





the technique I used is quitte simple but very very very time consuming, it took me 3 weeks to get the airplane ready for the spraying. I just searched the internet for a digital pattern, found one that repeated itself so I could collate them to obtain a bigger pattern, the I printed it on some sticker paper, put some masking tape on my cutting mat, took my best knife, and a few headaches later, voila !

I'm using the same technique on my f-32 and their's still is one shade of brawn comming, i'll post picture on the how to later :) just in case my explanation wasn't clear ^^

This would also look great as a camo scheme on its own.
