It looks great Eoin and as you say the decals have really brought it to life mate, glad to hear you are in schedule to finish in time Eoin but with a bit of luck there will be the month extension for those that need it

Thanks guys,

After a coat of klear to seal in the decals I started weathering, I used Flory models dark dirt


And the clean up process



Its looking nice and dirty, it needs to be cleaned up a bit more and after the wheels and other bits and bobs are in place I'll add in smoke and oil and fuel stains with the airbrush. This aircraft did over 100 missions so I want it to look filthy.

Thanks for looking
Eoin

Well DONE! It always looks scary to see the sludge wash after it goes on--darn scary, but then......the finished technique is GREAT!

Thanks Ted,

So I was hoping to finish up today but with Dublin playing in the big game I kinda got side tracked, but I got a good bit done last night.

After giving it a flat coat I got to work on cleaning up the landing gear and props, the props where a bit flashy and where joined to the sprue by the tips....not a good idea, so I had to do some careful clean up.




After spraying the small bits I got to work on more weathering on the plane, I put some smoke and oil stains in



After that I unmasked everything and fitted the landing gear only to discover that its a major tail sitter, I should of knowing to weight the nose but it would of been nice of Eduard to say in in the instructions, I'll sort it out but I need to dig out my lead.



So I'm nearly there..thank god

Thanks for looking
Eoin

Just a quick update, I normally don't do any modelling on a Monday but I just had to fix the tail sitting problem, so I popped open one of the bomb bay doors and filled it with lead and also the nose wheel well and it did the trick, I just did a small bit of damage around the bomb bay door.




I also painted the resin gun barrels


Thanks for looking

So tonight was the final push,

First up fit the gun barrelsbarrels




Then I had to spray the props which I did with tamiya rubber black then slightly drybrushed them with some light greygrey


Than after a coat of klear the decals where added and the tips done with yellow


And no I'm very pleased to say it is all done, I add some chipping with silver on a ripped sponge too the props and that was that





Thanks for all the help and encouragement it was all very much appreciated, it was a nightmare of a build but worth it in the end.

I'll have the final reveal photos up tomorrow.

Thank you
Eoin
