1/32 scale vacuform: ID Models (Tigger) SAAB J29 Tunnan
review / modelling report
..continued from page 2....
The J29 model in 1/32 should now get
its wind shield as a lot of puttying and closing gaps is needed. The windshield
was masked off and the gaps closed with strip, card and putty.
Several repeats were needed before
a smooth result appeared.
The scheme chosen was of a J29A with
serial 29303 as flown by F13 at Norrköping, Sweden which appears to
have a nice scheme.
The metal finishing would use the
ALCLAD II metalizer system. The model therefor got a gloss black under
The orange panels were masked to protect these for later. Next, the model got several gloss black coats that are required for the ALCLAD II system. The black "exercise panels" were masked now.
Several darker metal aluminium panels
are seen on a real J29. A special trick was used by separately masking
these darker areas, as seen below.
When done followed the first coats
of ALCLAD II ALC-101 Aluminium.
Now a next large challenge is getting the large Swedish roundels: in 1/32 scale I would need diameter 44 mm for the lower wing and 32 mm roundels for the upper wing and rear fuselage. How to get these? I had old Special Tryck decals and Flying Colours Aero decals but these are way too small....
