Very nice indeed, when I come to do mine I'll try mine over a white paint.
The little addons make the difference, watching this come together makes me want to build mine, but I must resist and finish some of what I have on the Rack of shame.

Will be using a white decal paper for my wooden decals. Will solve the transparency issue.

Interesting, how will you get round the white carrier showing around the edges? Like you I print my own decals on occasion, I've got a colour laser printer and I find the colour fastening is slightly better than inkjet types. What I really want is for someone to start making printers that print white, like the old Alps printers!!

Good point. Edges may need touching up I guess. I'm using extra thin papers, so it may not be an issue though.

You and me both!

I have spoken to an ALPs outfit/decal paper supplier in Aussie about having them print colour decals for me. They said they can't print white and colour, only one or the other, not even overprinting the colours over white (I suggested they might need to look a little deeper into their print set up :lol: ). I have contacted traditional printers and custom decal printers and haven't had one reply (probably the same muppet-types that moan about not having enough business). Cartograf who I would love to have print my decals have a minimum print run of 300. I can't see me selling 300 sets of Kiwi Skyhawk decals.

Using one set on this you only have 299 to sort. A better prospect already. ; )

Have drybrushed pretty much every interior component with AK's dark grey fading oil. Still plenty of detail painting and some wear courtesy of some graphite powder still to come once this has dried properly.

The colours come out a bit weird under my desk lamp, but you can see the effect. Any shine will be knocked back under the final flat coat.

Just some very small details still to be painted (I'm just being fussy now) I hope half of this detail is visible once all the glazing goes on.










Next stage will be a clear coat and some localised washes applied. Then I need to wire up the IP, paint detail and apply homemade instrument decals. Still need to put the HGW harnesses together too. That will be fun as usual :silly:

Holes drilled in back of IP to accommodate some wiring (accidentally drilled right though one :ohmy:) and painting almost complete. Have painted the dial surrounds with Tamiya Nato Black (one of the few Tamiya acrylics that brush paints nicely). It's a pity that Revell neglected to include any decals for this part. Will probably use a grey wash to emphasis some of the lovely detail on the dial surrounds and use Gauze to give the glass effect.

Added some dial details with an 00 brush, flat coated and glossed the dials with AK Gauzy.

Used strips of Tamiya tape to represent the straps on the ammo drums. Painted some with Vallejo neutral grey and others with various leather looking browns to add some variation.

It’s a nice attention to detail. No one notices until that chance look. Just sells it.

A couple of hours spent at the bench tonight. A bit more wiring work still to come for the starboard sidewall. I'm using 0.2mm lead wire for this.

That will do the trick. Just some blue lines and a rubber tube that have something to do with the oxygen system to add along the sidewall now.

I finished the wiring and gave the sidewalls a final flat coat.



Just finished one set of seatbelts. These are the Eduard fabric sets which use HGW's textile fabric.

Wow those are the best belts I've seen, I've got some HGW belts but they aren't as nice as these.

The only things that I don't like about the HGW belts is a) they're only coloured on one side; b) they're made of a textile fabric, so any creases you try to impart usually spring back. They do seem to go together slightly easier than the RB Productions product IMO, but I prefer the way the RB product responds to creases.
