Thanks Fabian, yeah today I got a couple of better brushes, in the medium to fine category, but they did have bigger ones there that I had a good look at. Enamels are nice to paint with I remember painting with humbrols when I was a kid. It's the acrylics that I'm having trouble with, but I'm going to try something. As always, experimenting. I had a little trial and it looked pretty good, so we'll see. I probably won't be painting this week now as I'm waiting for some stuff to arrive in the post. So I could change my mind a few times yet. lolol.
I did score a rattle can of Tamiya clear gloss today, so that's a start. And the LHS is getting in Vallego Grey Primer hopefully by the end of the week, so we'll see how that goes on.
But thanks heaps for your advice, I'm going to go down a different path though because I'm not using enamels. We'll see how it all turns out. [smile]

Ok not much happening the last week or so, been waiting for some online orders to arrive so I can carry on. I have completely stripped and repainted (again) some of the weapons and undercarriage. Looking much tidier now. I'm expecting some goods to arrive today and we'll kick this back into gear. Still looking good for a finish on time, no foreseeable problem.

A couple of pics:

Weapons masked up again:


And painted (again):


All unmasked. Nice, much cleaner than they were. A final touchup and clear coat and they're good to go.

My apologies if I've opened a can of worms in the rules section, if you haven't seen it please go and read it and add your say if you want.

Back to the build. This kit had extremely light panel and rivet detail which, of course, has been all-but wiped out due to my gluing mistakes (I have huge fingerprints!! lol).
I was researching the net trying to look for a panel detail reference for rescribing.
After yesterdays delivery I realised the 1/32 is about as perfect a reference as you can get. lol So the rescribing starts in earnest. It's a little rough in places. But I've never scribed before so it's good practice and better than nothing I think.

OMG... the 1/32 is enormous!!! Never realized the huge difference in size, and I should know about scale as an architect LOL
Your EJ is looking good on the pictures. No fingerprints visible:-). I just rescribed my Shinden, not so much fun, but as you say good practice. Good luck and fun with the rest of your build, hope you find your flow to finish in time.

Let's check out those worms...

lol yeah it is huge Fabian, it threw me when I saw the size of the box. lol The rescribing is going ok, I'm doing it in between my cigarettes! Haha. Very chilled approach, I'll get some primer on it, maybe tomorrow, then the fun begins. Looking good for a finish on time, no problem. Just where I'll post it remains to be seen.

That really does show the difference in size ! After I made. My first 1/32 kit, I never went back to the smaller scales, you will really enjoy building that mate, might need a couple of lager shelves though lol !

Love the bomb factory too by the way

Looking good mate

Ok, fuselage is pretty much ready for priming finally. As soon as I get my primer. lol (tomorrow)

Been a great little build this one, that fuselage is as tough as old boots it took a hammering. Rescribe and rerivet done today. It's pretty rough but it's a first tryout so I'm pleased to be able to at least do it now. Practice will perfect. Hopefully.



From now on it gets interesting I hope. [smile]

Ok todays effort, obviously from the picture I got the primer on, pre-shading and the front end painted. All went well except I forgot one step in the process, cleaning the blimmin' model before I sprayed. So I had some light sanding to do. I hope I picked out most of the gremlins (that won't happen again).

I was going to paint the metal end on tonight but I don't have any lacquer clean-up gear unless someone can tell me a good universal solvent that will do the job (clean the airbrush out, basically)? I think I'll still call it a night anyway. Great fun, just having a blast with this. Even though it's a bit of a hybrid build I'm enjoying the air-brush now. Lots of firsts, too many to list. Having a ball. [biggrin]

A pic:


Thanks for looking. [smile]

So close to paint time now mate ! It will soon come to life

I use cellulose/ Lacquer thinners to clean out Gunze paint from the brush , you can use Mr color thinner to do it but it starts to get expensive

Thanks Pete, I looked around town and just got blank stares and glazed looks. I generally said "nevermind" and walked off. lol I'll order some Monday but it's not holding the build up.
I decided to dry brush Mr Metal instead, it's working fine. Should have some big paint on today. [smile]

Hey guys, how soon can you mask on Pledge? Do you leave it overnight to harden?


All good, I'm leaving it anyway. [rofl]

I leave mine overnight mate, I'm sure it would be ok to mask it sooner, but I've never been brave enough to risk it lol

Softly softly catchy monkey

Yeah exactly Pete, my thoughts too, although I might have to test it a little further down the track, I'm running out of days! lol
