Really coming along nicely, very good detail added with the holes drilled! Very intricate work, very well done, i really want to try that at some point. Also thanks so much for taking the time to look up those items for me.
Happy modeling

0355 here in the South Eastern USA. Just finished some scribing and overall sanding with 2000 grit. More inspection tomorrow? Then perhaps a coat of primer to check my work? Fingers crossed. I am ready to move on! But right now--moving on to the bed...see yall later.

Thanks Ernie! I have a lot of expectation but also a bit of fear of moving forward with primer and paint. I still need so much more practice with the Airbrush. I know--its practice, fail,learn, practice............

I was inspired to do some scratch building around the area where the air brakes are opened--the hydraulic arm attachment points around the parachute tube. I found the picture of a model with this detail [I have re-posted it below-NOT MY WORK]. I believe that the modeler has used an AM kit? I did not purchase that AM kit for my build, but I want to try for some detail in that area. Its a small plate [kit part is 12X7 MM] and I must preserve the 4 openings for the locator pins on the hydraulic arms as well as the center opening for the parachute tube. I am going to try a technique using Milliput [posting the video below]. If that fails I will drop back to thin wire and CA glue? If both of those ideas fail,.........................? OOPS

Ernie,
I bought the milliput after seeing the video I posted above--like 2 months ago? Never played with it. Got it out the other week and totally muffed it up. Watched the video again and gave it another go. I am about to post some pics of what I did with the Milliput earlier this afternoon. If it works out OK, I am wanting to do more with it.The 4oz package [includes 2 cigar type rolls of the epoxy putty] was $13.95 US. that was the superfine white.

OK, I used the milliput and tried to create something similar to the image I found online----looks like a plate of spaghetti?



After the air brake detail, I decided to try to use the Milliput to create hydraulic lines for the landing gear.



NOTE: I AM NOT SURE THAT THE HYDRAULIC LINES ARE IN PROPER SCALE ???? SOMEONE GIVE ME AN OPINION ????  thanks..........

Looking brilliant Ted, well done on that. I think that is a great idea using milliput for lines, thanks for sharing that, will definetly try that. I dont think that anyone can say they are too big, not unless they are a hardcore rivet counter nut!!

Gentlemen, thank you very much for the input. After posting the pictures of the landing gear with the Milliput Hydraulic lines, I coated the lines with Mr. Surfacer 1000. Looks pretty neat. I will airbrush with primer, paint, then brush black paint on the lines and weather the gear. Hopefully the final product will be a winner. I did the same thing with the Air Brake mounting plate.



In addition, I became unhappy with the KOHL sensor I had created from clear sprue. So......I grabbed another piece of sprue, drilled out the inside, fastened temporarily on a bamboo skewer with white glue. Then it was a process of my small power tool with a sanding disc chucked in to get the basic "cone" shape. Sanding regimen with 220 grit, 400grit, 600grit, 4,000grit,12,000 grit [buffer]. Finally, a couple of dips in PLEDGE. I have to decide about an interior color. I have re-posted a pic of a REAL KOHL SENSOR from my research.





one more time--I have posted something I read online and wanted to play around with. I took some thin wire, curled it around a straight pin, pulled it off the pin, curled it, then coated with Mr Surfacer 1000. The idea is to represent a ribbed hose/ electrical conduit/oxygen hose for scratch built applications. Would be best to make the coiled wire, shape it as needed, then coat it and glue in place. I think that bending the wire after the Mr Surfacer 1000 will result in cracks and peeling???

FINALLY......................had everything ready for primer round two [2]. I mixed Mr. Bobby Thinner [25%], PLEDGE [25%], Vallejo Surface Primer Grey [50%]. Primed all the small parts first, then the MIG. The Vallego is great! Everything looks beautiful---considering that there are still a few spots that will need a bit of touch up. I am 95% happy right now.[rofl]





Got started early on the workbench this evening. Can't believe that it is just 1225 here and I am ready to make a decision about turning out the lights at the bench.[smile]

Hi ted, looks brilliant, and I found the info about the ribbed hose great, I thought it looked first class. Can I ask why you mixed pledge with the primer? What does that do?

Craig,
Thanks for the kind comments. I use the Vallego Primer. Bob noted in one of his videos that the Vallego primer may be difficult to sand after it dries. The primer wants to peel and chip rather than sand down evenly. He suggested over coating the Vallego primer with some PLEDGE [Klear]. Something in the PLEDGE makes the Vallego primer sand off normally. I recently read that another modeler here on Genessis Models mixes the PLEDGE with the Vallego primer as a thinner. I decided that I would try a variation on that mix. It would save a lot of time is you don't have to spray the two products separately. I'll let everyone know what happens with my mix. I used 25% Mr. Bobby's home-brew thinner, 25% PLEDGE, and 50% Vallego primer. All I can say right now is that the mix went on very nice.

Thanks Ted, I hope that it works for you and because that sounds good, as you said a great time saver. I will try that on my hurricane if it works.
Just looking at your pictures again, Panel lines look superb. On your advise I went to the local office supply store and bought Dymo Tape and gave it a go on an old model I had stashed away with raised panel lines, worked very well for fiddily areas, to the point where I now think that I could finish it. Scribing is starting to not be the bull in a china shop of modeling I thought it was.. more of a large dog with a very waggly tail now....[crazy]
