Shiden is away in it’s revetment for the night. What’s the number one (ichi-ban) problem in model building? Anybody? Everybody? Where do you put them when they done. My latest prolific outburst has strained the areas to put stuff to the limit. The last one, Hayabusa, still sits on the dresser where the wife says everyday “when are you going to find a place for that?” Making matters worse is, I got Cats. Lots of Cats. You don’t leave things just anywhere when you have Cats. Won’t go into small house, no basement, etc. don’t want to bore you. (You’re already bored? Sorry).
So happens right here next to my beloved PC is a bit of space where the last c**p printer I had chose to die. So it is the temporary (ha) revetment for the Shiden Kai. The Homare engine power egg is finally installed, after I remembered to paint the inside of the cowling. Speaking of the cowling, it fits beautifully snug on the nose, so much so that I can leave it unglued and removeable, for future gazing upon my engine work. Also helps that the prop has a poly cap, also removeable. This prop is a bit of a project itself, 3 colors, yellow tip stripes and 4 decals later, she’s done. The landing gear is holding her up now, a couple of detail mods being done, and a couple I should have done.
Sleep well, Shiden, tomorrow you get your glosscoat and the weathering begins. I decanted a jar of Tamiya TS-13 Glosscoat for the airbrush. Let’s see how this goes. Hope the paint doesn’t get to dark.
