Brilliant small work detail !!

do you have any tips for keeping such small pieces on place, and type of glue used ?

 

I use MEK bought by the liter.

 

Best plastic glue you can buy

Painting continues with the base color and the rendering of wear exposing the bare aluminium (hairspray lack method)

Fargo Express was a relatively new aircraft and wear should be kept to a realistic amount. This is not a flying trashbin !

 

Next will be picking out of the details with their corresponding colors

New didn't last long in the desert.

I'll be doing Fargo Express when I do my MkVIII as well . Red arrows are not mine.

 

 

It's used of course, at the time of the picture the airframe was about 6 months old but you can tell from the pictures of Lonesome polecat that they were well maintained

Vincent,

What color did you use to paint the seat body?

Custom mix, or a available bottle paint?

Oil paints over Tamiya Desert yellow. First i used a lighter shade to get the "base" of the resin color then i added a darker shade to simulate the fiber structure. It's a shame that it does not show better on pictures but in reality it looks just like a real Spitfire seat

Well, i had a little disaster with the seat

 

:(

 

Not wanting to go into painful details but would anyone planning to use the gorgeous Barracuda resin seat would be willing to give me the 3 plastic parts making the seat ?

 

I pay for postage of course !
