I am not being too kind, Paul. The talent pool here is tremendous.

Especially in these group builds where we help each other improve so much. [wink]

So this evening I set about to get the nose and tail masked and reprimed. I also masked and started to blend in the windscreen with Squadron and Bondo putties.

Once I sorted all that out I started in on the landing struts and tail wheel (adding a metal pin to it for better strength, now that its been broken).

After more sanding on the windscreen tomorrow and another blast of primer, I should be ready for some paint. I guess we'll see, eh? Lol




Thanks for checkin in! [smile]

Neutral grey has now been applied to the undersides. I only did a very light touch of modulation just to break up the monotony. I'll use the same effect with the O.D. On the topside later when this paint cures up for a few more hours.

Thank you, mate. Nothing brilliant yet, but I've still got more work to do. [smile]

Okay, so here is Where I thought I would have a problem; the rear glass in this kit is notorious for having gaps around the edges. But since I had to sand down the spine so much for the canopy to slide over it, all I had to do was sand the edges of the glass to around a 30 degree angle until they fit flush. Drilling out the ports for the fuel and glycol caps was harder lol. I still managed to end up with a crack, but that's an easy thing to fix in this location with some LC or some thinned clear gloss.







That's the best fit I've ever had with those. [smile]

this is shaping up lovely ! [smile]

be sure to make a base plate/dio of some kind so it presents well in the final reveal [wink]
(I want this build to do well [biggrin] )

Drilling those holes would make my hands sweaty... very clean work mate.

Thank you, thank you! [smile]

Paul, I don't have much to work with for bases. But I agree that it probably needs one.

Fabian, the holes did make me a bit nervous. I was as careful as i could be and still managed to crack it in that one spot. What made it worse was that I didn't have a drill bit large enough and I had to enlarge them with my Xacto. I was seriously afraid that I would break it for sure as I slowly carved those holes bigger.

I really need to get a protective clear on this thing. I've already found a few spots where the neutral grey paint has worn off due to my handling. Sweaty nervous hands are no good when painting and I need to invest in powderless rubber gloves lol.

Thanks for the comments my friends. [smile]

Am I alone in thinking how beautiful that Tamiya O.D. is? The way the color tone shifts with the camera angle is really eye catching to me. [biggrin]

The Vallejo O.D. doesn't do that and I'm glad I chose Tamiya!

Tamiya O.D. ?
Vallejo O.D. ?
Ornamental Dawbings ?
Occasional Drift ?
Oriental Dirt ?
Olive Drab ?
[biggrin]

anyhow, re a base plate,
cereal packet cardboard cut up into squares,
using the inside surface for the base concrete grey, dirtied and weathered,
glued onto a stiff corrugated cardboard or foam board, wood, anything..
and trimmed neatly etc.
if you use corrugated cardboard wrap the edge in paper or tape to neaten it up..
cheap as chips and simple to make but effective,
worth a shot ?
I think so [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]

Anyhow......

lovely model scratch building and painting,
deserves something seeing as you've made a gem out of an old simple kit [wink]
