Totally forgot but I also cleaned the the Awful Seam between the resin spinner and plastic base and re-pained it with props installed. Much better.

Decals are done!

I wasn't sure about the kits-world decals, at first they didn't seem like they were going to settle but eventually (and after a lot of sol) they settled ok. A few touch ups needed on the under wing roundalls (fitting round those massive raised details was a pain).

The decals for the EB-Z markings were out of scale for P7666 I guess they were correct for P7350, so some creative spacing was needed but over all I'm very happy, will let them settle down over night and gloss tomorrow.

Thanks man, really enjoying this big build but also looking forward to getting it finished.

I think I'm going to finish a project I started ages ago that's been stuck in limbo, Tamiya 162 salamander with full eduard etch inc gun bay etc, resin wheels, brass gun barrels etc. It was shelved because I didn't have a 1/48 mg-151 and I remebered today and ordered a set so hopefully be putting some time into that soon and trying to finish the c-17 too

Spent the evening weathering the underside.

In my usual more artistic than authentic, though not by much I don't think.

I used a mix of mig ammo weathering products... deep grey panel line wash, fresh engine oil and engine grime. Then for the casing ejection ports I used humbrol black weathering powder

Finally picked up my package from hannants today that included a Canberra pr.9 etch set, canopy masks and resin seat as well as a whole sheet of multiple scale swasikas so I can finally add my kill markings to the spit.

So as soon as I got in the door I got them down gave them a gloss and got a load of chipping down, the chipping is a little bright at the moment but should settle after a bit of weathering later.

I then sealed it all in and I'm ready to start weathering the top this evening.

Thanks man. My fist time doing brushed chipping, doesn't look as good as the chipping fluid wing root but I'm happy. On my next one I will probably look at doing an all over chipping layer to make it look more authentic

When doing chipping don't forget you can also use a sponge. That's one of my favorite tricks when it comes to chipping. Seems to lend itself better to armor than it does to a/c.

You know what! That's exactly what I meant to do. Cheers for the reminder [smile]

Disaster struck[frown] put the fuel filler cap on with a tiny bit of Tamiya cement and didn't realise I had some on my thumb and got a big ol smear on my engine cowl [frown]

Gutted.

Fixed with an paint touch up but now I have to wait for that to cure, re gloss which means no weathering this evening [frown]

Stupid boy

Faber Castell Aquarell Silver can get them from HobbyCraft, Amazon or an Art Store

Ahh man gutted about the finger mark hopefully it wont cause you to much trouble.
