Nose cone came out really tidy Joe, I had a similar issue today trying to mask the ends of the spinners on my Ju-88 I didn't have any thin tape so used a circle stencil.
It worked but it's nowhere as neat as yours

Thanks Pete well the line is not perfect on the cone but it turned out better than I thought it would so I was satisfied enough to let go at that.

OK guys well all the decals are done Revell provided just enough stenciling to make it passable but the F4's usually had way more than this but I am not complaining she looks really good for what their was of it. now I will have to seal them then a weathering wash but I am going to try and not make this one super dirty cause Air force birds are usually kept pretty tidy  depending  on where they are stationed in the world at any given time.

Well guys my Flory dirt wash does not work very well using the pen method the lines were a little dark but some just would not darken so apparently this wash works best when spreading it all over then wiping it off well it looks like she will be more dirty than I wanted but the lines will be darker either that but my wash is getting low and I think most of the clay is used up cause it seems more watery than it used to be.  if this does not work like I want it to then I may just have to order another bottle from Mr Flory.

OK guys these are the last couple pics  of the build stage weathering is done just the way I want it. I went ahead and glued up my FOD covers they are from AMS Resin and already come painted red and they are the only AF company that makes them for the revel kit get them from Sprue Brothers for less that 20 bucks before shipping.
