I gave it a coat of Tamya deck tan as instructed in the manual


Surface detail is fantastic but it doesn't look very exciting like this


So i gave it a coat of clear yellow and then went over the frame parts with Tamiya smoke

Here's a clearer pic


Now over the whole thing with highly thinned clear orange


It changes the tone nicely I reckon


And then a few shades of brown for the top edge

It's looking a bit better now


Seat cushion was painted with a mix of NATO brown, hull red and flat earth. ( I changed the buttons from brass to red brown later on )

A blob of raw umber and burnt sienna oil paint and a bit of torn sponge


Dip the sponge in the paint and then dab it off, drag the sponge over to make the grain


I didn't want to wait for the oils to dry so I gave it a light coat of Matt clear clear cut with cellulose and 5 minutes later a coat of clear orange

I have a bit of a problem with my uschi rigging wire.

On the uschi website it states that the fine thread is good for secondary rigging and control cables in 1/32 ( so I bought a reel )

But in reality it's so fine it's almost invisible. There no doubt it's in scale but I think it's just too fine, it won't be a bob Lemmon the main rigging as I have a thicker one for that but I'm not liking this for the control cables at the moment


The cables will need to thread through these holes I drilled in the seat frame earlier ( Valium at the ready )



Edit :

Above I typed " it won't be a bob Lemmon " WTF does that mean ? I thought I typed " it won't be a problem "

Either it's a major autocorrect fail or there's more going in my roll-ups than just Golden Virginia !

Just say no kids lol

It's an amazing kit Paul, the surface details are truly stunning.

It's just so different to anything I have built before I'm a bit nervous about stuffing it up lol.

But softly softly catchie monkey mate

Sitting in that seat would be nice and comfy out in the garden with a beer on a sunny day, but imagine sitting in it wrapped in what is essentially a box kite with an engine with bullets flying around !.................. The boys that flew these things had a good set of brass ones for sure


I painted the fuel tank in rubber black and the firewall with Alclad aluminium and a few grimy tones to make it look used

And here's where things are at the end of play today


I still need to chuck a bit of wash and some pastel dust over it but it's getting there

So all in all a pretty good start.

There is still a fair bit of work to do before the cockpit is finished but I'm hoping To make another big dent in it tomorrow.

Loving this kit so far

Cheers Nigel you are a star mate !
