This build is by far your best to date Simon. You've got everything under control and you seem to be getting the results you want without any trouble. I have to agree with the guys. This is looking fabulous mate.

And it's already spring here. Seriously, the plants are blooming. The squirrels are mating. This is not normal. We've been having 55+ degree days here and 50 degree nights on average. Its weird.

Thanks Mike, I appreciate it. I feel a bit freer with this build but I still want to do it right.
Still nutting out the cockpit paintwork believe it or not. lol
No I'm not, I started painting. I have to get back to it. Later dudes. lol

I'm now in party mode drinking cold beer on a stinking hot night with a bunch of good people. Day's looking good again. So's the cockpit. Big day on it tomorrow. [smile]

Thanks Pep, I've just done a pile of PE on a 1:78 Douglas Dakota. This stuff is big by comparison! lol
The coloured stuff goes on soon, then it'll polish up. [smile]

Ok, sorry guys, bit of a pictorial "War and Peace" coming up. Just to catch up on the cockpit saga. All going well, just my impatience now with this coloured PE. I think I'm ready to move on to getting this thing together.

I'll bang on in the pics.

Oh, first up, the radiator. Not happy with the kit pieces, they have scribe lines that don't appear on the original plane, and it got roughed up when I put it together. I did have a grander scheme planned. A piece of 0.5mm thick plasticard did the trick. I'll show the end result later.






Ok, the various stages of the cockpit. Bits of masks here and there, paint, mask again, next paint. Etc. Basically I painted the RLM02 first, then finished with the RLM66. That's the simplified version. lol

Masking some metal, also under the seat, I left it the original Alclad colour (very close to RLM66) because no-one will ever see it and I didn't want to mask around the chair later. You might see what I mean. lol


The two side panels with RLM02 on and chipping done, it will become clearer later I think.




The floor piece painted RLM02 ready for masking. It will finish RLM66 other than the add-ons. Read the instructions more next time Simon. Save you some work.


Firewall and engine braces painted and chipped.




Ok the masking. Because I changed tack halfway through the build I made things a little more difficult that they had to be. Nevermind. It didn't take long to mask up and the result in the end was much the same (never be seen really. lol)






The floor painted and chipped and demasked.


And the side panels. These got well tidied up with a brush.




The pit dry fitted after the painting/chipping stage. Still more to do.


This is where I'm at now.

IP done. It had more knobs to do but I CBF'd putting them on. Two was hell enough! I think I have to paint the bombsight yet as well, I'll do research. lol And I will fix that crooked piece now that I have seen it. :/


The side panels, not finished, so I won't bang on about them.


The pilots seat now in.


I have painted up a few other parts ready to put the nose section together. I do like these AK Interactive paints a LOT!! They have a nice something about them. The satin finish is gorgeous! Nowhere near as chalky as some other acrylics.
However, this was primed also, with 50/50 Vallego grey primer and future. So that may have something to do with it.



Thanks for looking. [smile]

Thanks Fabian, as far as the chipping goes it's been a bit ... too much work for the result? if that makes sense? I'm happy with it but next time I'll probably just sponge. lol

And yeah do it, they're brilliant! [smile]

That's looking really good, and the AK paints do look smooooth.

Like Fabian I must try doing a 1/32 scale model. I have no problem in doing 1/35 Armour vehicles, think I dave a 109e somewhere.
Build is coming along nicely, and you seem to be enjoying it.

Thanks Nigel, yeah it's coming along quite well I think.
I was just chilling watching the history of the Waffen SS, as you do. And I saw this:


Which looks exactly like this:


Anyone know what it is?
