A MAGAZINE STORY
FineScale Modeler, (FSM) magazine printed my story long ago. When I open up the photos on our Apple desk top p.c. I click on an "X" up in the top-right corner of the monitor and the photo's become larger, which let's me read what FSM wrote about the model build. They drew a diagram of the paint.
On a previous mode posted here I said that this was the first model that I attach the pre case wind screen and front section to a model. Well! that's wrong as the dates on these photos show that I built this Mustang before I built the previous posted model.
The kit's windscreen was painted on the inside first, then I superglued it in place on the fuselage. Next I sanded the outside of it from 320 down to 2000 grit and polished it with my Blue Magic polishing cream. It was mask off later when I painted the outside of the model. It, along with the canopy sure look like real glass.
