not much to report, still recovering from illness but done the undercoat

[stealth]

mixed Vallejo black primer with some Vallejo gloss varnish, It gives it a nice satin finish, when It's properly cured I'll be varnishing ready for the Alclad [smile]

I just looked at your work again and it makes me smile when someone takes all kind of this and that and turns it into a great looking scale piece! bravo, well done.

sorry for no progress, varnishing so nothing to report, that is apart from me dropping the lightning and breaking the nose ring, can't do anything about it till the varnish is dry *sigh*

[drop] 
The Cockpit is masked up with a mix of Tamiya Masking fluid and Plasticine,
It still needs another couple of coats of varnish but that will have to wait now till I fix the nose.

I'm also working on my new toy, I'll post about that if I ever get it working [biggrin]

bummer on the broken part. bounced my Mig the other night and broke some minor pieces off. really frustrating when you cannot repair immediately--then you have to look at it over and over. good luck with the repair

Now on to the masking:-
[masking]  [masked]
A coat of Hair spray was applied and then a coat of grey, after it was dry white-tac was applied to mask off the grey camouflage areas then green was spray'd
[grey]  [green]
After that dried it was time to remove the white-tac and masking tape... the moment of truth:-
[camo0]  [camo1]
I removed the masking around the cockpit cleaning up the Plasticine and starting to attach the cockpit

I'm pleased with the paint result but it's not quite what I'm after, I want a heavily worn look, time to break out the tooth pick:-
 
[chipping] 
Much closer to what I have in mind :-)
After I finish with the canopy I can start on the decals and weathering

I Have also been working on other bits:-

The Engine
[Avon2]
This still needs weathering but other than that is just about ready to install.

The Nose Ring

I broke out my punch set unfortunately I couldn't find my 9mill punch so had to settle for the 8mill and a file:-
[punchrings]
I only need the rings so the disks go into my parts box for when I need some disks :-)
[rings]
The hole just isn't big enough
[fileing]
After much elbow grease and many test fits I get it just about right, unfortunately it's a little thin but I have punched out another couple of rings.
An exact fit isn't required for these so I use a 10mill punch and widen the middle hole, Extra thin bonds them together and a coat of red paint and It's close to ready.
[nosering]

Rob,
nice work again. I don't know how many others in this group build will take the "weathered" route. I am anxious to see what you do!

I've got to get a set of punches! then I can hit something with a hammer occasionally! eases frustration sometimes--as long as you don't hit people or pets.

ok here we go some more updates [smile]

I gave the Engine a couple of ink washes, one black the other burnt sienna
[inkwashed]
it gives it a subtle dirty look whilst bringing out details, I used 10% int to 90% airbrush cleaner.

Now to apply the Decals, my intention was to do my own, unfortunately time has got the better of me so I sent for some Xtradecal's I already had some pretty good stencils that came with the kit.

[decals] 
First the main decals
[insignia]  [tail]
