Yes they are cloudy and need polishing.

Deservedly so ! NMF is very hard to pull off so well,... finger print acid alone can f-up the paint DAYs after its cured.

So... questions what metal paint do you use mate, and do you like me use cotton gloves when handling the aircraft?? i find with alcald that if i don't buff out a finger print right away it stays.

Nice work G1 absolute pro build!

I used Alclad Bright Silver Candy Base, with vary levels of other Alclad aluminium/silvers mixed in, then it was gloss coated with Alclad Aqua Gloss, flat coated to blend decals etc and finally Satin coated with Alclad Aqua Satin to show off the metallic sheen on the panels.

Meanwhile, somewhere else in the world, another HB B-24J morph's its way toward completion.


Gee, these kits are big!

That they are, I don't think mine was first but it did get a lot of attention (probably because I spammed the crap out of the internet with it lol).
This is a nice subtle job, I like it.
