This will be my next build on the forum.

It's an old kit with plenty of flash, and its needing a lot of work sorting out the sink marks on the wings.

I know its been a while since my last post but just getting this put together with the lower wings. Plenty of filler on the wing joint so had to wait for it all to dry before sanding.
All primed up ready for some paint



I've tried to make the wood effect with the pre-shading, we'll see how it turns out.

Progress is progress and its looking good. Very interesting paint work the wooden areas--I have never tried simulating wood grain and this is going to be instructive for me.. It won't matter when the overcoat paint is applied [or it shouldn't ?], but it looks like the preshade paint on the wings was a bit thin and you had some spidering. No matter, looking forward to your next postings!

Yes I'm not the best air brusher in the world Ted, still need some practice, I wanted a light shade on the wings just to give it a slightly darker colour to the top coat, because the top of the wing ribs are going to get a lighter post shading of the top colour. And as for the wood effect, I've never tried this way before, but I thought I'd give it a go, If nothing else i can always repaint it.

I understand! I only recently learned what makes that appearance myself. I am a novice at AB work, paint mixes, what paint can go over other types, etc. Ho harm intended.

No harm taken Ted, it's great when you get comments to better yourself so don't stop.

Well as you can see it didn't work very well.
So I went to plan 2, I masked off each panel then painted some Vallejo Mahagony 71036 on, then while still wet I gave the panel a brush with a wet paint brush in 1 direction.
This is how it turned out.

Method #2 looks good. That technique is easier to control with oil paints, but I'll be danged if you didn't pull it off anyways lol.

Nicely done!  [biggrin]
