This is Tamiya’s TYPE 97 built right out of the box with the exception of an MV lens placed in the head light socket. The model was painted with Testors paint, gloss coated, decaled, and then a dark wash (raw umber) was applied. The model was then dry brushed with Humbrol 72 (khaki Drill) and weathered with pastel chalks.

Trumpeter 1/32 F100D
by Jack Hollander
Once again, Trumpeter has produced an outstanding kit that’s fun to build.
I painted he airframe with Alclad Airframe aluminum, finishing it with a coat of Future Floor Wax. The wax dulls the finish. For contrasting shades of Aluminum, I didn’t use Future floor wax on the horizontal stabilizers, ailerons, or wing tanks.
The burner section was done in dark aluminum and titanum gold
I used Dark blue on the vertical fin to match the decal.
Wing fins are photo-etch and were used on the rial plane to reduce the vortices to improve laminar flow.
