Yeah, its due to the Acetates evaporating faster thereby hastening the dry time or cure time of the solids
Lacquers are very hot so be cautious when using them, all sorts of horrible stuff can happen, some I've seen after months of building too, was a shame

Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

Cheers mate. Just got one or 2 bits to do now anyway and then I'm going to do a final Alclad enamel clear and call it done.

And she's done. I'm just waiting for the final clear coat to dry and I'll be calling this build finished. Final reflections and report when I take the finished photos.

Very nice indeed, love what you've done with this and I hope mine comes out just as well.
Look forward to seeing this at Cambridge, we should have a nice selection of Sci-Fi models for the competition :)

Cheers mate. I'm sure you and most others could do better but it's been a great learning model for me and had me do things I've never done or even contemplated such as oils. They're are a lot of imperfections but at some stage I had to say that any more would not be worth the effort. So I'm proud of it. I would do it differently next time and I think that's how it's supposed to be.

Top stuff. A great example of how model making by just working patiently and extending yourself can achieve great results. B)

Cheers all and thanks to everyone who offered encouragement and advice throughout the build. I have learned a ton, and can't believe its nearly 4 months since I started. So glad I got it finished this weekend as I wont have any time next week for anything, then will have to give wifey some whanau time before starting my next build. Here's a few pics I took.

Bloody nice job K1... outstanding work! B)
I really like the weathering as well... not too much but just right I reckon.
How do you intend to display it?

Congratulations Grover, this looks amazing. I'd be so bloody proud of myself if I pulled something like this off. The blue plastic really did the trick for the thrusters too.

Well done, for a guy who claims to be a newbie to a lot of this you have turned out a falcon that puts many a seasoned modelers efforts to shame.

Thanks guys, but really it's not that impressive in person. Impressive for me, but I wouldn't display it in public :oops:
