Looks fine to me, another couple of coats and the patchy effect will blend nicely. After that when the final matt coats are on it will become less 'stark' anyway. Carry on, sir !!

So before I put this model to one side I did get the paint on the top side done. It was a mega mission, as the primer didn't stick to the model around the end of the fuselage and numerous other patches so i've had to sand down and completely re paint the fuselage as well as many touch ups.

I'm not entirely sure as to why the primer (Mr Surfacer) didn't stick. Probably there was some reside on the model. I did wash it wish soap and water and let it dry before I commenced priming but maybe I didn't rince it throughly as I was being extremely careful not to get water on the canopy masks.

Anyway this is where I got to after a little bit of work as my mojo seems to be coming back pretty well. I'm going to work on a Tamiya 1/48 Corsair, and continue the Ju 88 in the background.

As usual I'm happy to receive any constructive criticism and advice. The yellow on the tail's control surfaces has been painted on and the yellow tape on the engine cowls is pretty much the same colour as I've painted them.

Looks good! :woohoo: Nice to see you back at this one

I've heard of people using IPA (Iso Propyl Alcohol) to wipe down a model prior to painting. The alcohol being a lot more effective at removing grease, fingerprints etc

Cool scheme. I saw that book while researching stuff for this build. Do their plans include rivet detailing? I wouldn't mind having a guide because I would like to try ICM's 1/48 kit some day and apply my own rivets.


Thats pretty much 95% of the book. Rivet plans.

Just a quick update:

I took a little bit of time off the Corsair I'm building to get the decals and paint some touch ups on this. I'm quite pleased with how much better the decals make it look, it's been a tough build for me.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I have some old historic images of some Ju 88's that inspired my weathering that I thought I would share.

These picture shows the streaks and grime that could build up behind the gear bays and gear bay doors when in flight.





Build up of grime and fuel stains on the wings and fuselage







And exhaust stains





And a rare colour photo
