    Coming along Allan! I’ve debated getting one of these kits, just because of the size. I may live vicariously through your build here still…!

    Thanks Greg, large models can be a problem !!

    A coat of Vallejo matt varnish on the panels then a drop of Future on some of the dials and a coat of MM aluminum metalizer on the bomb bay and wheels !

    The IP and interior in general has worked out really well Allan. I haven’t used decals for IPs before but seeing this – and some other recent builds – I think they can be really effective.

  • Allan J Withers said 1 month, 3 weeks ago:

    Thanks Paul, if it comes with decals I usually use them, fuselage together now with other option canopy on loose to protect the interior !!

    Wings going together with some metalizer on the fans along side, the canopies have a thick edge around the bottom so I’ve scraped it away and polished it out, the difference can just be seen comparing the two !! and the part of the fuselage you won’t see once the wing goes on !!!

    Some plastic tube going inside those wing root intakes with a length of wire to locate !!

    The attention to detail is great Allan. Seemingly small things make a huge difference. As ever really enjoying watching your way of working!

    Thank you Paul, and a bit more work to these panel lines !!
