F-100F SUPER SABRE U.S. AIR FORCE FIGHTER TRUMPETER 1/48

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 BOX PACKAGEBecause the storage space does not increase at all, even if I make a small model as 1/144 scale, I touched again the big box. I’ll try this F-100F Trumpeter model.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGOverall length is about 35cm. It looks better to replace the larger cutter mat.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGBecause the manual of the trumpeter did not have detailed painting instructions, I painted the cockpit in aircraft gray of Mr. Color. You can see the difference in comparison with the natural plastic parts and painted.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGThe kit has no seat belt parts and no handy decal, I added it separately. This is not accurate because it is not the parts for the F-100. I think a seat belt on the front seat was attached excessively. Because it was strange that only the back seat was different, I made both seats a similar appearance. It seems I have to study the seat belt structure of the jet a little more.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGIt is very good looking after I pasted a small decal on the molded cockpit panels. I’m not sure the small parts coloring. I noticed that there are remaining not painted area on the back seat. I have to do a retouch later.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGI did washing lightly. I think the cockpit to be enough result in this if I put it between a body.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGI jointed the left and right of a fuselage part together built in a cockpit, an engine and an air brake. I was relieved to this large-scale work has been completed.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGThe one side is glued together so that the angle of the main plane doesn’t out of the angle. After fixing it completely, the other side was jointed.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGI assemble the belly tanks and the AIM-9 Sidewinder. A belly tank of the F-100 is bigger than the Hurricane that I made the other day. It is a strange feeling when I display it.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGThe fitting with a fuselage and a canopy is quite good. Still, there is a gap slightly, so what should I do? When this gap isn’t blocked neatly if it’s painted after glued together, it’ll be a trouble later. I had blown a mist in a canopy many times in the past.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGThe pitot tube at the nose and the refueling probe under the main wing are now so fragile. They are required careful handling.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGI stop assembling when I think about the painting and begin painting work with each part.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGBefore gluing a canopy, a joint surface of a fuselage and a canopy was painted in matte black.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGThe masking of the jet airplane’s canopy is easy except for the cutting of the delicate curve.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 MAKINGI am painting the super stainless steel. The silver changes the finish state of the paintwork by the surface condition, it is difficult. I polished the scarring place with the 1200 sandpaper in the middle of the painting.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGI think it is good for paint surface that I moved my hand the same direction from up to down or from forward to backward when covering a paper. Anyway, I’m a complete beginner because the former silver painting was Hasegawa F-104 many years ago.
I painted ALQ-31 ECM in stainless steel silver. There seems to be a painting example of white and the olive-drab when I check it. In the case of this body, I gave priority to the same color united feeling of the appearance and had stainless steel silver.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGThis painting, I added black and blue to silver a little, shaded and varied metal surface. Someplace I used iron metallic.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGThe space of the landing gear, I used XF-4 yellow-green of the Tamiya enamel.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGI masked the outer shell where the heat of the jet engine changed the color for airbrush painting. I would like to complete it soon because I have a trip to the hot spring next week.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGI blew blue, orange and burnt iron in a belt. It’s a change of color due to the high heat of the outer shell of the engine nozzle. It’s the first try, so a little modest.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGThere are large decals in this kit. Almost the large patterns are for the Thunderbirds. Because I have Thunderbirds of F-100D at hand, I pass it this time. I’m thinking I attach a band of Sidewinder using F-15 and Dragon AFV model decals that I made them before.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGI am putting decals on the body. These flaps were made in the downed state, so the decals in the edge of the main wing were stuck on by trial and error to fit a good condition. It was unexpectedly hard work. I intended to make it by painting, but the decals patched carefully is high in the success rate. I had put the logo on U.S. Air Force larger one, is there slightly presence?

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGIt is during inking over the top surface. I feel like having become bad. If I fail here, it’s shedding tears of vexation, but it’ll be OK.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 PAINTINGThe undersurface is modest inking compare to the topside. If there’s no problem, it is almost completed.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThis was used in Turkey, France, Denmark, the Republic of China, other than the United States. All planes were retired by the early 1980s. I suppose it is a nostalgic body like F-86.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThis F-100F is a two-seat training aircraft. I did not know it with the training plane until I bought this kit.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe long refueling probe is one of the characteristics.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe meter panel decal is nicely detailed.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKUnfortunately, the inside left side of the canopy has clouded a little. Did mist flow in from a small gap? It isn’t too conspicuous by the angle, is it? Depending on the angle, I can’t see the dust.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKBecause I fix a body and a canopy solidly this time, a connection part was finished neatly, I do not tear it off by force. I wonder it is better to fix the canopy temporally before the painting.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKWhen the surface was smooth, the adhesion condition was good, so the decal working was able to do happily.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe manual of the trumpeter does not have detailed painting instructions. I checked it by myself and painted it with feeling.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKIt is a training aircraft, the two-seat cockpit. The instructor was in the back seat, maybe.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKI have made the yellow ladder, but there is not a place to hang because the cockpit was closed. It is only an atmosphere.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKAn air brake was an open position.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe brakes cables are molded to landing gear and there is an accurate feeling.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKI think the one in the fuselage lower part is 20mm machine gun. In a book, there are 4 machine guns, but I wonder F-100F has only 2 guns.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKI’m not sure of the effect of inking. I felt that I wipe off the almost area. The paint does not remain in the rivet holes.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKIt was good that a silver body was finished beautifully.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKTrumpeter airplane Kit was not difficult to build up. Rather it was easy to have formed.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe 1/48 jet is powerful. It was rather interesting at the silver painting since F-104 building. I’m making another aircraft, the SMER Su-7 in silver paint, this is incredibly difficult…

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe manual of the trumpeter did not have the instructions to put the decal of USAF on the main wing top surface. I think it should be. I have stuck it by addition. I’m not sure it’s correct or wrong.

F-100F SUPER SABRE TRUMPETER 1/48 FINISHED WORKI stuck the same decal on the backside. Because a pylon disturbed, I patched decal diagonally and finally fitted looking smart.
