Ok I like Eduard again, those fits are horrible on any kit, I managed to assemble the wings and most the nacelles, they fitted lovely with no seam gaps 😉

No tigers in my bathroom, just the horrors, either running off with toilet roll or pestering me when I pee.

Well that was this morning, they don't like it when I sleep until 10.00am on days off work

I've never used it before, but cut up some of my sprue, added some black AK lacquer paint into Tamiya extra thin to make Styrene filler

Here's hoping it's as good as it suppose to be 😉

So I was waffling on Alains build, pastel pencils. I set myself a challenge. To use my cheap pastel pencils to streak instead of oils.

I've allowed myself to use gloss oils like fuel stains on finished model, but other than that all my streaking effects will be pastels.

Never seen it done this way, I might be a pioneer in model making or the biggest loser ever

But what ever, I'll just enjoy the build

Oh I like styrene filler, within 2 hours I can sand

Old Gits like me  can be slown to accept new ideas, but that is one great idea

I think that more and more pencils will be used to make wheatering. AK is going to release this box soon, or maybe it was not available anymore and backorder. But these pencils seems very interesting. Have a look.

Looks like a nice kit but I heard of the fit issues with this one. But seems like you have it all under control 👍

I sprayed the interior Vallejo 71.044 RLM 02 grey..............really is that grey. Though checked a few other manufactures and they have it greenish grey (even AK real colors). But Eduard PE is a true grey

Going to try Tamiya Xf 22 as its close to the colour of the PE

The exterior of this aircraft is RLM 65 underside, RLM 02 and RLM 71 upper surface and the box art shows it as a definite grey. When I painted a ME109 with these Vallejo paints, it was different to any other models I'd seen. The RLM 71 seems acceptable, the RLM 65 is ok with weathering...........but the RLM 02 seems totally off.

I don't usually bother to much with colour matches ......after weathering they all change. But a green instead of a grey is a bit too much to ignore  so XF 22 it is, I'll pick up a jar of XF 23 at same time to help blend the Vallejo RLM 65 to a better match (the Vallejo is a bit too grey and the XF 23 to blue, but base Vallejo and bleach with XF23 should get me well into the ball park).

I don't know if modellers have done chinese whispers over the years and changed the true colours (like museums can), but most people have an impression of what colous aircraft have and I think its not a good idea to buck the trend as it were

I resprayed the interior with Tamiya XF22 and did a little brush painting...........then a gloss coat ready to decal and weather

IMG_4281[1].jpg 
The grey is a lot better, I'd added some white for scale effect then more white and thinners to bleach some panels and upper surfaces. Fast coat of Gauzy and I'll decal tomorrow night. I decided to do a mix of PE and decals in the interior, so I can compare the results. The panel behind the pilot (painted black) is either 6 decals or 12 pieces of PE. It'll be under the canopy so went with the easier decal option and I'm curious to see the difference. Chartograph decals so should go down well with Micro set and sol.

so I fitted the decal instrument panel and decalled behind the pilot:

Some of the decals moved because of raise lumps, but I think they are still acceptable, set and sol comformed them great. I'll leave em to dry before sealing with gloss and weathering
