thanks Wim,

here's a bit more [smile]

DSC_0037.jpg

after a liberal dose of filler, the seam lines are starting to look much smoother.  going to be needing some re-riveting though.

got the engine nacelles al glued together but true to form there are fit issues here as well. [rolleyes]

then I glued the props together and found the worst fits yet!!

this thing's going to be more filler than plastic at this rate. [frown]

Yeah,  I'm getting there with it.
Got the fuselage, wings and props all primed.  Just need a bit of re-scribing and riveting to put back the details that got sanded away.

still to do:

engine nacelles need smoothing, priming and scribing
landing gear not started yet
pre-shading, painting, decaling and weathering
rear ramp gun mount to create, paint, weather and install.

and finally, if I get the time, a carrier base.

Looking really good Paul fit issues are common in this hobby of ours as I have said in the past  I always like the challenge.

I must admit the old mojo's lacking somewhat at the moment.

to be honest I've always preferred the build stage to a model over the paint and finish stages so I really need to stay focussed to get finished.

I got the nacelles all finished off.  re-scribing and riveting a whole model is a first for me and to be honest I'm hoping its not something I need to do again for a while.  After a coat of Stynylrez all looking good so I've done the pre-shading.  went with a little mottling here and there too though to be honest I'm not the neatest at this bit and its all jut a bit all over the place.  Usually comes back with the top coat though so not too worried.

Blimey Paul, I've just caught up with your thread, when you read it in one hit no wonder your mojo's a bit flat mate. lol
Yeah we do a lot of filling and sanding in this hobby but we'd rather not! lol Well I know I wouldn't!
And rescribing and riveting? I know all about that one mate, you've done a brilliant job getting it this far.
The scratchbuilding is very cool.
It does look a little Chinookish doesn't it?
I'm following this one. [smile]

Yeah its very similar to the chinook. So much so I was looking at the aftermarket stuff you can get for the Chinook as there's nothing much available for the Osprey.  in the end I just decided to scratch it all instead. 

Just been cleaning up the gear and one of the rear ones has a pretty bad mis-mold.  taken care of it but this kit really seems determined to put up a fight to the last.

Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel though [smile]

well the good news is the mojo's back and i'm raring to go again.

the bad news is I've left it till the last minute to order paint and it's taking ages to arrive.

in the mean time, does anyone have any recommendations for a clear green for the tinted glass on top of the canopy?

I've not used their new versions, but the old Citadel Glazes were good for this.

Might want to read up on reviews, see if they are still good.

Tamiya clear green X-25, thinned down works great as well. Bobby shows it in his
video of the F14 step by step build episode 25
