Except for the one turbine photo and the first set, all the photos from July 15th are not there. Looks like a problem with Photobucket.

The turbine looks awfully good and the detail is terrific. Any word on the airbrush parts?

Ok guys, we're at it again! Before I get started on this installment I want to give a big shout out to Ken at Badger for hooking me up with a replacement airbrush. This one is a modified version of my original Velocity, it appears that in the time between me buying my old one and now they've made some changes for the better. So the painting resumed! First are some shots of the intakes, which fit great. I painted the lips FS36440 and then dipped the trunk in house paint. I learned this trick from Paul and it works like a champ for smoth realistic intakes. I'll have to do some creative masking later when I do the final scheme, but it shouldn't be a big deal.

This is where I'm at right now. The entire assy is together except for the tail fins. I gotta say, the box isn't thata big when you get it, but this kit is huge!! So far the only real putty I've used is where the upper nose section meets the fuselage, awesome for such large castings. YES you can still get to the cockpit to paint it in there!

Thanks for watching!
