Still need to add more washes and a some more 'scuffing' in the 'pit - looking a wee bit too clean at the moment.

 

Stay tuned.

Quickboost resin replacement prop blades - worth getting a lot 'sharper' than the soft kit ones.

Started blocking-in the camouflage a couple of days ago. Lifecolour acrylics which seem to have fallen-out-of favor nowadays but I still get very good results with them; RLM71 Dunkelgrun first.

Next was the boring masking & spraying bit, so let's skip ahead to the 'reveal' this afternoon.

All looks a bit patchy or chalky just now, but after it thoroughly drys for a few days in the Spring sunshine, I'll give it a couple of passes with Tamiya 'clear' from the rattle-can and it will all even-out then. Got a couple of days in hospital so nothing until the middle of next week at the earliest.

Looking good, Ian! You'll have to count me among those who don't get on with Lifecolor though, I'm afraid.

Good luck with your hospital stay. I hope everything is OK.

Back to the bench after a little lay-off whilst I built some car kits over the Christmas & New Year holiday....

Hasegawa swastika's and RoG Balkenkreuz all behaving very well indeed. Should get the rest done in another session or two.

 

Stay tuned.

Decals on and sealed under a brushed coat of Johnsons Klear/Future. I'll brush another coat over the major decals before masking and applying the white(s).
