got it all painted... gold leaf... (so far only 2-3 nights work)
Didn't forget to do the glare paint this time! YES!, Lastime i had the decals on and everything done until i noticed i'd missed all the black paint.... doh!
Then a coat of gloss to make decal mounting easier...
I use Micro Sol and Micro Set these days for the larger decals like the flashes on this kit. now i have run into issues with the Old models digital decals. i have found them too thick for my tastes, sent an email to john... don't want to go into it here as i really do appreciate his work.
This is one of the issues decals not conforming and cracking
Model Alliance decals on their way... and a coat of mr muscle coming soon to remove well and truly stuck down decals.
BUT WAIT... now i have plowed through this build and gotten stuff done quickly but have missed a major major detail... my mind is not on the job...
400 million "modelling" points for the chap who can figure it out.... its pretty major... doh #2 i really should write down the mods i need to do ahead of time...
That was the other thing I thought was off but since FK said he was taking the decals off anyway (I think) I didn't think that was the one he was referring to... They are supposed to be parallel to the fuselage aren't they, not perpendicular?
HAH... you know i new after i posted that there may be a few other things picked out.... the roundel i missed.... and that is good to know!!!!! i always do it right on the fuse sides! never thought about ti for the wing
You guys are a mine of useful data...... i said USEFUL
