A few friends have asked me why am I doing this model and not concentrating on the MiG31 Foxhound. The answer is simple...I've not used my AB for a while now and this little project will allow me to get back into using the AB with confidence.

So here is the first base coat...



A little touch up, here and there, and then seal.

Oh, paint used Nato Green.
Thanks for looking.

This is coming together really well. I've done a simple base to display this model and I'm not too far off finishing.

Just need to apply some weathering, scratches and loads of dust.



Time for a nice cuppa and watch this dry........enjoy.

That's crazy! Can you easily strip them off and airbrush them instead?

Hmmm. looks very interesting but I see how it will create modulation. We used to use hairspray to seal our "artwork" in school. The teacher told us that the cheaper the HS the better. It contains lacquer. The next project? cool already.

The larger Red Cross decals I can Airbrush, but my only concern are the other identification decals.

All I used wat luke warm water, as the surface was glossed, and once dry use Micro Sol and Set to seal them. The water just defragmented them.
I've never seen anything like that before.

Must have been a dodgy set of decals, they are not that old. Water was just as Goldilocks would like it, laid them on Tamiya Clear Varnish and they just fell apart. No solutions...just water.
Tried a few on just plasticard and they did the same thing!

I will have to put my thinking cap on for this one. [wink]

Would a transfer sealer / varnish type thing work on them (the sort of thing you put on self print transfers)

Just a thought

What was really bad. But model is stunning as always. I think there are so many 3rd party aftermarket, you can find any decals you want.

Thanks for the ideas lads.

Going to look for AM products, I may even load the back part of the hull with stowage. I saw one resin set, but it costs over 5 times more than I paid for the kit. Going to try and get some Milliput and make my own sandbags and have a good rummage through my Bitzbox.
My local Model Shop is 45 mins away but they will have minimal stock as they have a stall at the Telford Show. Looks like I'll have to use the Internet.

Too bad about those decals, Nigel. Invest in a stencil set. [wink]

Fiddly, but you can make any markings with them.

Nigel...I'm enjoying the Stryker build.  I've never seen anybody lighten the hull using white before the base coat of paint.  It will be interesting to see how it comes out.
