Lots of work this weekend. Here it is at he end of play. I did some additional detail painting and touch ups, and sealed the whole thing. I might gloss it up a bit more before decals. Still a couple more weeks to finish this, at least.

I like that. Great colour scheme, nice and clean, weathering just right.

Decals on. For various reasons (including the crapness of the decals I have) I have decided to go for a generic/fictional bird. Next up, weathering. :blink:

It looks very nice, I'd be tempted not to weather it, it looks great as is.

Finally got some more done. I decided it really needed a wash (with Tamiya enamels) to tone down the colours and fill the panel lines. Maybe another lighter wash on the darker areas after this to bring out that detail. Tomorrow I'm off to San Diego though. Will visit the Midway. I'm taking the good camera to get some pics of various subjects. :)

Looking good! The wash certainly brings out all the details. You'll love the midway. Also try to vist the san diego air and space museum (it's only about 15min drive form the midway), it is well worth a visit. Are you spending time in LA as well? I haven't been there but the Planes fo Fame museum in Chino is worth a visit too, despite being a little buit out of the way.

Wow that is really good, I love the variation in tones of the blues. Now that is something I'd love to have in my cabinets.

Cheers Gary. I reckon that tonal variation is key to painting most aircraft. I've mostly given up on panel line shading and just treat the whole thing as a canvass building up various shades.

I did my touristing today. I've visited the Midway before but it was raining that day. Today was much better. Nice and warm, and they have made some improvements on the displays. A guy was giving a nice audiovisual presentation on what it takes to get an A6 launched (right next to the lovely A6; must buy the Trumpeter kit). Some guys were polishing the canopy of the Buckeye and a number of the aircraft have had some restoration. The F9F Panther is looking very shiny. I also don't remember being a Fury there last time. (Is there on in 1/32? :whistle: ) I took oodles of pics of the F-4s for when I build one soon. :)

Thanks for the tip on the Air and space museum. They have a nice collection (the Blue Angels F-18 :woohoo: ). Didn't spend too much time there though, because there were a million screaming kids.

Looks like a nice day. When we went to the San Diego air and space museum it was pretty quiet. Loved seeing the a-12 (one of 2 I saw, the other being at the california science centre, along with an f-20 tigershark) and more importantly the Ho229 replica they had. Did you go up in the island? We did, it doesn't look that high from the dock but when you are up there it is a long way up.

Creeping toward conclusion. Work on the gear doors. I can finish this tomorrow, even though there is lots that I could do. :)

Speechless, looks real except for the paper towel rolls, they're a bit of a giveaway.

Absolutely beautiful. Saw this pop up on FB, Kevin Futter from LSP shared it and I thought "hey, that model and background look familiar". Definitely one of the sexiest jet's around and you've done it justice.
