Wow. So disaster. Started up on Decaling.
[F4-build35] 


At this point, I noticed I only painted the flap white, and it should be white all the way to the fuselage.  So I very carefully (I thought) masked up and painted that bit. However, it seems I accidently grabbed some tape while doing it and have ruined the decale.

I have no extras. I will order a new sheet, but it won't get here in time (no local stores carry decal sheets). This is very frustrating, these decals are awesome, the best I've ever worked with. I was also watching the tutorial on this site over and over [smile] Even the black decals were showing rivets and panel lines.  I'll keep working on this one, doing the other decals , but it will take a couple weeks to get a new NAVY decal. So while I won't finish this group build, I think it has been great. It has forced me to really get outside of my comfort zone and try new things. I've made a ton of notes for my next build and can't wait.

That's a real shame with the decal, I had a close call with masking tape and decals on my build too.
I hope that there is a chance that the new decals will turn up in time for you to get this completed in time

Sorry about the decals.
If you buil a narrow chamber in front of the cpu fans, you can place a simple furnance filter to catch the big bits. The plenum in front of the fans makes the air draw more efficient. I used this kind of set up for my current both and it works quite well.

Steve,

Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it.


I've also gotten past the despair and realized I can most likely make a stencil for this instead of getting a new decal. Giving it a shot!

good move with trying a stencil. I mucked up the decals on my first GB--a spitfire--and had to use some stencil work to recover. I also was able to cut bits from other decals on the sheet [variations for other markings] and piece them together to make what I needed in one situation. it came out OK but it was a real nail biter. best wishes!

continuing on with decaling while building a stencil. The little decals are all done, just a couple larger ones to go. One thing I noticed now is a gap in the landing gear. Will have to close that up. The unseated rectangle between the landing gear is where plan on putting a post for mounting it on a stand.

Assuming I finish decal and sealing tonight, weathering this weekend, I might actually get this done in time.
