Thanks guys.


Got a good start on the Camo today, made a few errors again though along the way, but we can sort that later hopefully, i think i have a misty? Canopy, i tried using formula 560 canopy glue but i couldn't get it to stick, so used Tamiya extra thin and umm yeah think ive messed it up, luckily there is another canopy in the box so need to see what i can do with that

Also missed the bottom canopy, i wasnt sure if i should paint it before or after assembly since it has windows, anyway big learning experience today 

I definitely going to be looking to build another Bomber, cant decide which though.

Masking tape has ripped off some paint on the tail... guess its an easy fix though so im not to worried

[16515546594_5bcbd1498a_k] 

Managed to get the canopy off and the nose, so il make another attempt at getting that on over the next few days, need to have a go at my own masking again too.

This is my replacement parts, i guess these are for another version of the Ju88 since Dragon do a few versions

Hi Steven, didn't catch your name in my thread that's why I called you Alba;-). Your a true masking master with all those canopies. Nice save and good progress. Maybe there is enough time to start your Betty ;-)

Really nice work all round Steven, apologies for not catching up sooner I've been a bit busy doing real life stuff to catch up on everyone's builds.
Your cockpit (and weathering) looks fantastic, as Nigel and Pete has said (I learned from them too btw lol) using clear coats before weathering is a bit subjective and usually depends on the look you want. I tend to use enamel washes now and they can go straight on acrylic paints no problem, you just have to allow it might look dirtier than if it was clear coated first, as Pete said.

And I'm about to give my airbrush a bath (next job at the bench), in the past I've used a cheap (very weak, tastes like water!!) airbrush cleaner with thinners or stronger airbrush cleaner in it to reduce the cost a bit. If you've only been spraying acrylics X20A will be fine, just damned expensive. I've got home brew thinners now, which cleans my airbrush as good as any (acrylic) airbrush cleaner I've used, and it's cheap, so my airbrush can happily bath in that from now on.

Keep up the good work mate, very impressive for the "firsts" you're accomplishing. [smile]

Cheers Fabian and Alba is fine i still type Alba myself sometimes i think, i dont know about a masking master, but i think i found it easier to mask it myself than trying to stick all those wee stickers on you get from eduard. and noo the Betty deserves better, il save it for another time Maybe that Japanese Group Build you were on about.

Thanks Jamone

Simon no worries theres a lot going on on the forums, i dont get to check out everyone myself. And of-course life away from here too ... What enamel washes do you use ?  and il check out the home brew thinners i know bobby mentions it in a video somewhere

Thanks Kintoo, i still think it was a bit to dirty but hey i like it.

And Nigel thanks Bud, i fully expected to make mistakes along the way and im sure there will be plenty more, Like knocking a full bottle of Micro Set all over the workbench, place is howling now.

....


Started the Decals today... i decided that id just use the ones from the box, and went with the Hungarian scheme.

[16973446829_1e2b60f3bb_k] 
[17133680556_af014c88c7_k] 



And painted the other ones instead of using the decals, i did attempt to cut out the crosses but decided against it

[17133680666_507ad7bd0d_k] 

Cheers 

Steven

Have you tried the Flory Models washes? There fantastic and probably the easiest washes to use, I also use oils paints, you can have great control over how you want the weathering to look.

Bobby has plenty of fantastic tutorials on both method's but if you have any questions don't be afraid o ask, I'm no pro but I might be able to help.

Ah Cheers Fella... ive never done any kind of weathering other than what i did in the cockpit ... this is my first build since i was a wee boy, back then it was just glue and attack with a paint brush ... so yeah id say this my first kit.

Il check out Flory washes thanks again

Cheers Steven

If you put a coat of Klear on you model first and let it dry fully (overnight), then use the Flory washes. They are clay based and the results are pretty good. Just use a damp brush or cloth to remove areas that you have covered.

I believe they are just about to re-release their weathering pigments, which appear to be getting good reviews.
