I better kick it in the arse just to keep up..........
Although, I do find it kinda hard to keep motivated at certain stages of builds........like sanding and unfortunately the project im on now requires a ton of it, in joining many resin parts to the OEM kit parts to make a resin/injection Frankenstein.
Keep the pics comin, and remember to take a breath and drink a beer/wine/favorite adult beverage of ur choice!

Heeeeeey Brian! Glad to see ya following along with the fun & games. Been waiting on another update for the Mk.XIV,....what's up with that?! Thinking of doing one of those in 1/24th around March or so with an old Airfix MK.-1 kit I got for a song & bad shuffly dance. I foresee mucho putty in my future!
Yeah, that technique worked out pretty good Kevin. I don't pre-shade too often, but it wuz the way to go for this camo-scheme. My paint-jobs are about as subtle as a loose cannon, but I thought I'd give it a whirl to see what'd happen. Here's where I wuz after I got my dead-beat butt up this afternoon. Repainted the spinner while I was doing black. I read where the spinner was toned down with RLM-75 on some of these so I thought I'd try it grey. Nuh-uh. Didn't happen. This build has been constantly morphing in my attempt to get what I have envisioned,....whatever that is....a very low-viz late war 'what-if' that I woulda wanted to fly if I had my druthers to paint it any way I wanted at the time. Time for some progress pics!

Let me put the canopy/wheels/ and spinner on for a full dress rehearsal, just to see where it's going. Darn thing is tough to photograph!

I like this view, it comes closest to showing what it really looks like.
