You should bottle that tap water into leftoever tins, mark it up 3000% and sell it as the perfect AB thinner :(

Well this model has sat around long enough. Its time it was finished i think. I did my favourite part today. The matt varnish. I used xtracrylics matt thinned with tap water. It worked great. I cant wait to do a bit of weathering on it.

The red in the artwork should have been the same colour as the cowl , unforunately it isnt.

Thanks guys.

 

U/C is fitted and is very strong. I still need to ad the upper doors. I was toying with the idea of Mastercaster wheels , but i think i will stick with the kit ones for now. Maybe i will get better wheels later.

The engine is beautiful. Its the quickboost one and the cooling fin detail is amazing. The only down side is no pushrods. I cut the kit ones up and used them. Very time consuming. I still need to add the magnetos and ignition wires yet.

The oil streaks were fun. Dap a small amount of thinned paint on , then blow it with a drinking straw!
