Building a jet: Hobbyboss’ 1/48 AMX A-11A Ghibli- Everyone Pylon- It’s Time To Close The Fuselage

Progress continues on the AMX build. The fuselage is closed up and ready for seam treatment. There were no problems closing it up- everything fit inside perfectly. Very cool!

I also worked on the pylons. I gave them a coat of Tamiya XF-19, then outlined the panel lines with an HB mechanical pencil, sharpened to a fine point. I then used some graphite dust to highlight the panel lines a bit more. Next up were some dots of color, based on photos of an AMX pylon. Finally, a light filter of a darker gray just to give some streaked effects as I saw on the pylons in the photo. It took a couple of hours, but it was a simple technique and I think it turned out pretty good.

Next up are the missiles and drop tanks.
