Thanks Sinuhe, so very much appreciated

I'll take a few close ups as well as the stand photos and some off the base as well for the Ready For Inspection photos

Peter, looks like this one is just about done.  The build and paint scheme really came out great, the Alclad gloss black looks like it really made the finish shine. I will have to give that a shot with my L-29 build when I get to it.

 

 

 

Congrats on the great build, hopefully the holidays have been good. Now it's back to that Skyraider for you

Hi Matt

Thanks Buddy .. so much appreciated. Just a few bits and pieces to go and Old Crow i finally done. It took a while but i finally figured out how to use Alclad Gloss Black base:

Light, smooth coats and build up the layers until its glossy smooth. STOP right there. The more coats that go on after that, the longer the drying time. I'm sure Tamiya Gloss Black or Model Master Enamel Gloss Black will also work as well but Alclad is lacquer and so is their base. Looking forward to your L-29 build; shouod be a super thread to follow and enjoy

[...] Alclad is lacquer and so is their base.


I'm not so certain about that Peter. The bottle I have of their Gloss Black Base has a notice on the label that says "CONTAINS Mineral Spirits", which suggests to me that it's enamel-based rather than lacquer. It certainly smells like it! I have to say I generally prefer Humbrol's gloss black under Alclad now.

Thanks Kev

I took a look and you're right. I just assumed it was lacquer because the Bottle says Alcad II Lacquer. I guess it really just the name for the product line.

I always wait for the paper each morning. I look at the obituary column and if I'm not in it, I go to work.
