    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    Some more photos, it looks a bit strange in gloss but that is for the weathering and decals, she will be clear coated 15% satin

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    WHOOOAAAHH!!! I like! Well done!

    What type of paint are you using (sorry of mentioned earlier). I see the "auto door jamb" tape (dart tape or similar) is being used to good effect. Isn't it amazing how expensive that stuff is? (at least it is where I live but it's the only way to make nice transitions in camo schemes IMHO).

    Your airframe choice, color and pattern choice are fantastically optimized for maximum bling and I suspect really decent visibility too for an F-20 based camo sport aircraft

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    Very VERY nice work! I have a T-birds flash that has 380 flights on it now, I am thinking that when I hit 500 (or maybe even 400) I may have to give her a extream makeover! I love what you have done here and you give a guy a bunch to think about.

    Again, nice work....maybe I should send you mine....

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    Phil,

    What is the masking tape that you use on the edges of the camouflage colours? I've seen it before but can't remember what it is or where you get it from.

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    Hi guys, rather than explain here is a photo of the masking foam.

    It's not that expensive about £18 per box and you get 50m in a box

    How do you darken the rivets and panel lines?

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF


    List price in the states is $87.00 [X(] discounted it is $44.00

    However that being said it does a fantastic job of creating a very good transition between paints, perfect for camo paint jobs.

    Hi tony,

    Thanks for the info... but how?? I'm sure you aren't brushing it into each and every rivet. Are you just wiping it in and out of the voids?

    Tony look at post #376 which shows the soft edge 3m tape, Post #405, #406, #431 & #445 of the following thread shows how to weather, keep going in the thread and you will see water slide decal application

    Here is another good link: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10...m.htm#10921173

    Rich,
    I view the 3M foam tape as actually quite a bargain. It costs about 30cents a foot and is really effective for spraying a soft edge. I picked up a box a few years ago thinking it would be a lifetime supply. Well, quite a few models later I'm about to start my second life. . I can't recommend it enough.

    RE: Making an Ultra Flash into an F-20UF

    Hi guys, here are some shots of the weathering going on the underside of the wings. I apply the artist oil paints with a cloth then wipes it off with another cloth (not a tissue). This removes any unwanted paint from the surface and leaves the paint in the rivets and panel lines.

    Hi Phil

    Cracking work as always.

    One question. Do you apply the oils directly over the paint or have you put a seal on first?

    Thanks

    That seems much simpler and faster than spraying with an airbrush then sanding with 1000 grit, then using 70% rubbing alcohol as Maj. Woody did on his weathering job, THANKS for sharing your techniques,
