Hi Guys,

 

More Mistel!

 

Here's the port engine in its new colours: lots of masking but worth it.

Masking up to paint the areas under the slats.

With some White Aluminium plus Chrome from MMP.

The original holes to locate the struts:  I had scaled them from the Dragon 1/48 model but like all things. it hadn't been researched properly and the points are in the middle of panels, not load bearing frames or spars.

And it just jarred on my nerves.  So I re-drilled the holes, the front one just behind the cockpit rear bulkhead frame, the other two  on the main frame just ahead of the undercarriage doors.  The gear legs hang from this frame and the wings are bolted on top, so this is exactly the right place!

The original line up:

New line up:  see how the code numbers are no longer aligned.

As it was:

And now.  Note I've outlined the Yellow 3 with a black marker pen, only roughly as if hand painted by a 16 year old conscript.  (My mental age!)

Hope you like it so far.

Time Maunder is the good looking one standing up. A superb artist, does things like Box Art for various manufacturers.  I'm the ugly old bugger sitting down.
