Now on to the metal work at the rear.
This was primed and pre-shaded with the rest of the fuselage.
After masking I applied Model Masters Stainless steel. A light buffing to remove any roughness brought it out nicely.





The elevators were masked and painted with the stainless steel as well.


I then used Model Masters Titanium for a darker shade to indicate some variation in the panels and the band on the elevators.





Here we are with the elevators just pressed in place temporarily. I am pretty happy using the buff-able model Master paints for the first time like this. I will probably add some additional weathering at the end.





I will seal it all in with a gloss coat of Future and then start the decal marathon.

Just finished my second night of decaling. I have finished the starboard upper wing and central starboard fuselage. The decals are great to work with, go down nicely and are well labeled. As we all know there are just so many of them. Hopefully I can get through them this weekend.

Good luck on the decals. There are a ton of them, and I know I'll never be the same after putting the decals on my phantom..... *curls up into a ball and rocks in the corner muttering about decals*

Metal area came out really well Steve, she looks really nice. Hehe just 1 or 2000 decals and it's done lol ! That's the kicker with modern fast jets, I love them but all the dang stencils can really test your patience, but it looks like the decals go down really well looking at the others builds

There are nice to work with. I don't think that all of the access panels that are stenciled are actually on the model, as I don't find all of them in the plastic.
They still look cool once they are on.

Thanks Neil
I am thinking about using some blue pigments later in the weathering process.

After countless hours of work I have finished with the decals!  [biggrin]

As noted the decals in this kit are extensive, a rough count of 562.
They went down nicely with some Micro Set and Sol. Some of the stencils did not have the same panels on the airplane that were indicated in the directions.
They were also two sets that I found that were mislabeled on the sheet. Access door markings 131 R/L were labeled as 130 R/L, and 75 R/L as 74 R/L on the decal sheets. Actually there were two sets of 130 and 74's, but the decals are clear enough that you can read them all with a magnifier to figure out which ones are correct.

These pictures are after they have been laid down, followed by Micro Sol. I have not sealed them with Future yet, but that is next in preparation for final weathering.


















I was very happy how the sharks mouth and the tail came out. Several coats of Sol eventually allowed the mouth to lay down very nicely without any ripples.  I did have to touch them up in a couple of areas with some red paint.




Now this kit is getting really close to its completion.

Decals came out great. That shark mouth looks like it's ready to eat something.

Thanks Kenny. A lot of time involved but very worthwhile in the end.

Excellent job on the tail and shark mouth. I can't tell at all that you had to touch it up. Flawless.

I appreciate the kind words. The touch ups were in areas where two decals intersected. Very minor, like leading edge of vertical stabilizor.

I imagine so, but I can't tell. That, Steve, is excellent. You are almost to the finish line and now comes the fun part. [smile]
