This was my surprise present form my son last Christmas.
Never having made a resin kit before the very thought of it terrified me because it was a present and if I made a mess of it I wasn’t just disappointing myself.
So, after doing some interneting to get hints, tips and help I stuck my courage to the sticking place two weeks ago and decided to get on with it.
No real problems with the build, a fair bit of filler and sanding especially on the bits that had shrunk. The only real problem was that the canopy didn’t fit at all. Some hot water later a reasonable fit was managed. (More of this later).
Painted with Vallejo Model Air AMT-12
Tamiya Nato Black Acrylic
Humbrol Arrow Red Enamel
Finished with W&N Satin Varnish.
The decals, all six of them, went down with no problems then but when I unmasked the canopy it had gone completely cloudy. Must have reacted with the CA I suppose.
I tried to tint it by hand but the damage was still visible, so Nato Black coating with a glossy coat to try and give it the impression of a canopy.
All in all I’m quite pleased and it looks very sinister in the cabinet.
Thanks for looking,
