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]

Craig,

Thanks again for your comments about my build. I am letting the Mig dry really good before I touch it with sandpaper. If I see that its not going to work, I will apply some PLEDGE over the Vallego primer. I'll let you know as soon as I check it to see if the mix works to save a step. I like the DYNO tape OK but I find that if I don't clean my hands off and be super careful about using it, It loses sticky pretty quick. Like I posted before, the hint I saw was a good idea---placing low tac tape on the exact same location where you are going to place the DYNO tape.This makes the tape strip last longer and it also helps keep the DYNO from pulling paint off. I did not overcoat the first coat of primer with PLEDGE, so when I used the DYNO tape it pulled off some of the Vallego primer. Live and learn live and learn...........

After waiting more than 24 hours, I set about to do some small touch ups on the MIG after Primer round 2. This was the coat with the following mix: 25% Mr Bobby Thinner, 25% PLEDGE, and 50% Vallego Primer. All I can say is that the "problem" with the Vallego primer wanting to peel and chip during sanding was reduced by about...............Hmmmm,[thinking],......60-70%??? IMHO I believe that if I had used just the Vallego primer and PLEDGE, it could have been better? I thought I had an "original" idea until I read this in a build thread from RossiMI:
   
".....Update on Hawk progress got the fuselage
closed up and the seams filled and sanded which seemed like a
marathon, also got the intakes together and again filled and sanded
and blended in the wings are on as are the rear stabilizers the wings
took a fair amount of filling and sanding particularly on the under
side used plenty of Mr dissolved putty and Tamiya surface preparation
primer then wet sanded back with 600 and 800 wet and dry
paper,finished off with 1000 and 1200 grit fine re scribed the lost
panel lines with a needle in a pin vice,really must practice this more
as made a few slips and had to fill the scratches I created.Will be
ready for a primer coat next I use Vallejo primer which I have found
to give excellent results and I thin it with Johnson's Klear which
thanks to Bobby's tip makes it sand-able.Not sure on the paint scheme
yet either all Gloss Black or the 2 tone Grey, will decide once the
primers on...."

I do not think the thinner had too much to do with it. I have heard the Vallajo primer needs to dry quite a while to be sandable. I am old fashioned in that I tend to use a lacquer primer because it will "bite" to plastic, metal, and resin. Then use acrylics over that for the rest of my painting. As you know, the primer is the foundation for the rest of the paint work, so I try to give myself the best base I can.

Ernie,
Thank you very much for sharing that technique! I understand your reasoning. Like building a house, the footing and foundation support everything else!

As for the question to RossiMI about his primer mix of Vellago and pledge [klear], this was his response:
"...the ratio of mix I generally use is about 60/40 60 being the Klear, I have also experimented recently thinning Vallejo primer with Cellulose thinners in a 50/50 mix an I feel this gives the best primer coat I have ever achieved.and its sandable within about 20-30 minutes."

I really appreciate the various techniques used by different modelers. Now everyone has something to sort out if you have not already determined your "best" product/ mix/ results sequence. The greatest thing in this hobby is the freedom to do what works for each individual in terms of product, application, results.
Again, thanks to Bob, RossiMI, and Ernie for giving us options that we can try and decide on for our primer work.

After I worked with the Milliput and formed mechanical lines for the landing gear, I looked back at walk-around pictures as well as a very nice model build from the internet.The Milliput mech lines I made are just too far off scale. I am going to keep the front gear Milliput line because the walk-around picture shows the mech lines bundled together. I will also be adding wire mech lines on all three landing gear struts. I will post pics of my work when it is completed.





On the bench this evening and this morning---I finished small touch ups on the Mig, overall sanding with 2000 grit. then cleaned everything down. Will be shooting one more primer coat soon, then on to the paint!!!

My detail work on the mechanical/electrical lines for Mig landing gear. Purely representative, not accurate by any means.






0400 here in the SE US, got to call it a night/morning. lots of holiday errands to do later this morning!

In two years, Edison and his assistants tried over 3,000 theories of the light bulb before success. How many of us would devote that much time to finding success??

Thank you. Eduardo here on Genesis models has built this kit. There is a link in my build thread a while back. Hope to shoot some paint soon. Been attending the holidays and such.

This is a great modeller diary just read all the posts - superb effort Ted! I'm sure this will be a stunner! Are you considering to add an small deck/runway or similar as a base? It will be lovely to have it with this Mig... just a though ;-)

cheers
Christian
