B-17 "Flying Fortress" - 1/32 by HK Models, Eduard, Profimodel

Recommended Posts

After a lot of masking work I have brushed the red parts with Revell Aqua Colors.... 


... and made two first layers of high glossy clear coat for a shiny surface as base for the Decals....




















The next steps are the decals, then a further shiny clear coat, then one more masking for painting the black ond olive parts ....

Thank you guys..... 

But what a mess yesterday.... a fu**in day.... :doh:  :help:  :fight:


I put on the decals yesterday morning..... and was shocked in the afternoon.... I put the US star on the wings top side (!!!) in the wrong direction.... the star stood on his "head"......  I was nearly far enough for juming from the roof top.... or shooting me...... or anything else.....  so what do do.... take out a bottle of wine and thinking.....  leaving at it is ? No never.... the original kit decals on top of the wrong.... no...... 


... What have I done? Took out my bottle of Carsons Paint Killer and started to remove the decal and the complete paint under it on the complete panel of the wing..... (luckily the colors of each panel were a little different in original....). Paint removed, new decals at kitsworld ordered (today shiped - thank you to KITSWORLD !!!!) and today I will give this panel a new aluminium paint..... then new clear coat tomorrow..... and hopefully everything will be ok  then.......... *panic*


Keep cool ...
