No problem Alba, you can fill them and give it another go... and another... and another... ;-). I really don't like rescribing, but with Dyno tape it's not that hard to do. Nice progres, looking good!

Nice work Steven, you can use some CA glue to fill those little scratches, they're annoying aren't they? I purchased some scribing templates as guides, well worth the investment although I have heard dymo tape is good too, especially for the tight spots I imagine. Good luck with it, looking good. [smile]

Yeah i was looking at templates, could only see them in one online store over here though, and never had all the other bits i was planning on getting, so just got some Dymo tape from Ebay, il get a template further down the line

And thanks for the CA tip, i might look into that tomorrow

Redone my cockpit, just wasn't happy with it (Especially after seeing Pete's damn that looks incredible!) but yeah before it looked to much like a toy all shiny and stuff,
Also had my first attempt at some weathering today ( again thanks to pete for the hints and tips ), i still need to give a quick matt coat, but i think i might have went a bit overboard in places, i messed up a bit though i weathered before i did a Klear coat, should i do the klear coat first ? ... anyway im happier with it this time around


Also found another nose/canopy option in the kit so i think i can do a Ju 88A now

Looking good there Steven.

I think the difference between weathering after Klear is that you can basically rub it out and start again. I see Klear as if your saving a game after completing a level so that you don't have to do it all again. Mind, there is nothing wrong with weathering directly onto the paint, sometimes it gives a slightly different effect.

So full steam ahead with the rest of the build. [thumb]

The weathering looks spot on to me Steven. I always worry that I go a bit heavy on my weathering too mate, but it always seems to look ok when everything else is finished, I know that a lot of these planes didn't survive long enough to get a huge amount of wear and tear but if i build them clean they never look real to my eyes, I think that the mind expects to see some muck and bullets inside the pit of an active war machine.

Nigel is spot on about a clear coat before weathering. If you apply the washes over a gloss surface they tend to run nice and cleanly into the recesses but over a matt coat you get a bit of "bloom" and staining (I prefer this myself) as long as you add a little bit at a time over matt it's easy to control the look, I give everything a light dusting of matt varnish when I'm done too, just to unify the different paints a little bit.

It looks like you have got the hang of things though, I really like the effect you have achieved in the cockpit.
Nice to see the bird beginning to stand on its own feet, great progress and it won't be long before you are getting the camo on

Pete
