Nice work there Jesper! Can't wait to see the finish result using that AK stuff...have it but never used...

So time is almost due for this campaign, just 5 more days to go.
I know that I won't be completing my 110 (again!!) but some of you are just about to complete your HQ projects. Let me know if a few days extension of the deadline would be helpful.

Good Boxing Day to all!
Cheers

Pedro, I am making good progress, but an extra week would be great. Is that possible? I would prefer not to rush it.

More to follow soon

I think we can manage an extension until January 15th

Now let's see if a couple of us manage to complete their Hangar Queens in time.
P.S. - Yesterday I pulled my FineMolds Hayabusa from the unfinished pile. It got stucked because of the resin cockpit, made for the Hasegawa kit, so not really a good fit for this FM kit. Still somehow I managed to do some advance so I just might get it going again... more likely for the 7th edition of this campaign 😂

Cheers

Riding herd on the campaign, answering questions as they come up (or passing them along to me if you don't know the answers), generally being a cheerleader to make sure things are moving along. Shall I slot you in?

Michael, I assume you want me to do the Hot out of the moulds III for 2017? If that is the case Mike could run this one and I run the other one.

Just saying

You guys want to help me out on those, I won't say no! Need to hear an affirmative from Mike though, no volunteering someone else around here.

Sorry to take a while to get back. I can run the next HQ if that works for everyone.

Jesper, awesome job mate, and I'm not just saying that because it's a Thunderbolt!

The paint job and weathering look great. What did you use to achieve the streaking effects?

Cheers, D

Jesper,

I second Damian's opinion.

Impressive work indeed. Guess AKs panel wash was used also for the streaking effect?

Don't forget to upload a couple of photos on the campaign gallery.
Ribbons will be given soon.

Cheers,
Pedro

Hi Damian and Pedro

Thanks a lot for the comments. Much appreciated.

The streaking effect is indeed the AK panel wash. I do not think it worked differently from some of the turpentine washes I make myself. However, it is obviously easier with a finished product that comes in different shades for different aircraft panel colors.

The panel joints also got some airbrushing with Tamiya Smoke.

Looking forward to Hangar Queen 7

Cool looking bird Lap Man!

I love those skulls ☠️☠️☠️☠️. Btw is that a black drone or a piggy back small plane over it?

Congrats on a great Hangar Queen completed. Please make sure to upload a couple of photos on the gallery.

Cheers,
Pedro

Jasper and Lap Man, Nice finishes!
Good to see a strong sci-fi presence here in HQ6.
Can we plan on seeing you guys in HQ7?

Hangar Queen VI is officially closed, so a final word to all the enlisted, active or not that much, a big thank you!
Now to all 6 fellows that succeeded in completing their projects... Campaign Ribbons have been distributed!

Congratulations and see you all on HQ VII

Cheers
Pedro
