So nearing the finish now. Got the painting done and the gloss top coat. Managed to break off the nose.....I knew that was going to happen.So my friend has decided straight out of the factory finish. That makes it a little bit harder as a good weathering covers a multitude of sins.
Got the build done with just the canopy to sort out. She's almost ready for a couple of fine gloss white top coats then the final clear gloss finish.
Then touching in anything I missed, decals, some panel line's and finish coat to seal it.
Will need to refit that, fit the canopy and generally tidy up the nose section which is looking a bit rough. Might try some Humbrol Clearfix to fill out the side cockpit windows. Some panel lines in grey as suggested.
Then finally the decals, looking forward to that bit. Anyway, some photos to comment on for now.
