I much prefer taking off masking than putting it on.  Couple of wee areas need attention but hopefully the back is broken.

Tidied up the upper gray and tightened the green in a couple of areas. Masked and sprayed the tail band.  Getting impatient now, so will press an with clear coat ready for weathering. Haven't decided to what extent yet but I do think sometimes less is more. Will be trying the Humbrol clear for the first time so helpful advice appreciated. Despite Bob's great tutorial, I have never got consistent results with Klear and the new potion, regardless of what anyone says is just not the same, IMHO of course. [biggrin] 
I'm down to about 10ml of the old in an old Colmans mustard jar that I use for dipping canopies.
Again, many thanks for th kind words of encouragement. Aidan

Looks really nice all round. Part of the enjoyment of modeling comes in making your own choices and
using materials that you have confidence in and get good results with.

A wee bit more. Masked off the leading edges for the yellow. Xtracrylix Trainer yellow. Was wondering why I was having a bit of clogging and spitting. Could there be a fatal flaw in the GM home made, all purpose thinner, I asked myself???  Of course not, had only tried to thin with white spirit, didn't I. [frown] Of course this means a strip and a deep clean of the airbrush. So I put my clothes on again and painted the bands.. ba da bum [biggrin]

Not being totally convinced with the new Pledge/Klear/Future, I gave the Humbrol Clear it's first outing. After I finished, I noticed that I had the compressor still cranked up from cleaning out the yellow. Could probably do with another wetter coat at a lower psi but it feels smooth enough and ... I don't want to!!! I need some markings on to feel as though I'm moving forward. The yellow seems a tad narrow but I cannot find any consistent guides, so again I am happy enough.

Decals now on, adding a bit of colour. The reds seem to be a tad too bright but may tone down with wash and varnish. Speaking of washes, I forgot to rinse the model after decals (but before sealing)  to remove the remnants of Mr Setter and Softer.

Quick update. Tried a new wash and it has dried and stained even on the gloss coat. Deciding to use a heavier cloth, I have broken a cannon and flicked off a rear stab. Ironically I had placed the flaps upside down but as I had used 5 min epoxy and cyano, I was reluctant to remove in case I broke the resin. Also, I was unhappy with the stab joins so a blessing in disguise perhaps. So now to clean off hardened glue and repaint. The Tam paint was easy enough to remove with a couple of squirts of Fairy Power Spray. Aidan
