I can see why you're so pleased with the shark mouth, looks really "sharp".

That is superb, you should rightly be very happy with the shark mouth

Thanks. Im quite satisfied. Since the cross marks gave me quite the trouble i was afraid of the red bleeding onto the white

Small update. 

 

Ive had a good set back while applying my panel wash 2 weeks ago. I got some damage to the paint job and it really killed my MoJo. 

 

This week i decided to push ahead and finish it. Final alclad semi gloss went on. Then i added all the bits. She is now standing on her legs, wings installed. Last night i make some streache sprue dor the antennas and installed and painted it. 

 

Ill post some pics from my PC later today

 

Cheers

i dont have a picture of the front but that is where most of the damage from the wash is, the yellow looks really dirty and there are 2 spots on the shark mount that the paint was damaged all the way down to the base coat, so i strategically added some dirt with tamiya weathering pastels

Sorry to hear of your problems.

What wash did you use to cause the damage? 

Do you know what happened exactly?

What a bummer!  The rest of the build looks excellent, but you must be so disappointed.

Thanks guys. 

 

So the issue i ran into is that the thinner i used to whipe away the wash was too powerfull and ripped trought the clear and the paint. 

 

The main clear coat was Alclad klear gloss. After doing one wing the clear was getting attacked so i stopped and applied tamiya x-22 then tried again. I had the same issue. Im using MM enamel thinner to clean the panel wash that id Tamiya panel line accent brown. 

 

Followint Brian suggestions im going to get some mineral spirits and give that a try next time. 

 

My main pet peave is that the panel line wash ended hup more a sluge where all the paint got stained it does give it a dirty used look but thats not what i was going for. So the cockpit is now way too clean for the outside. 

 

Ill post some final pics soon. 

 

I have stab counterweight and boarding lader left to install

 

Cheers

Sorry to hear that. Repainting the damaged areas isn't an option?

I'm looking forward to your finished 110!

It's looking good there. Sorry to hear about the paint issues. 

 

If you still have the masks, you can use them for the touch ups needed. They're generally quite resilient and I've reused masks many times.

That's such a shame for that to happen on such a great build. Its too good a build to write off, the repair option has to be worth it? 

  

Not to worry its not written off. It just not to what i was expecting. 

 

I have completed the build. Pic are in the  lightroom queue
