Hi M8's some summer eh.

More Beach Bumming then bumming around in the shed this weather. Getting along with this yoke. Fraid another Mediocre model from my stable. I reckon the Enthusiasm boils off towards the end and I get fed up with the effort it takes nowadays not to mind the battles with primer and paints....

Humbrols with Alclad Matt ' Light grey dust' Varnish.

took some shots with the model facing east....

That's a lovely turkey. My favourite aircraft.

If you can. Try Mr paint lacquer paints. Just tried a couple of them. Spray fab, smell makes you see aliens though. When I get their primer will let you know what it's like.

Ta M8, I used Tamya primer, the only person in History it seems where the primer did no take to the Plastic. I reckon it is the Temperature of the Portacabin being too cold r summit.

I like the Humbrols but the Matt varnish is poxy.

There some many paints now it is getting confusing!!

As-Salam-u-Alaikum m8! This is quality! Love it!! For a kit that isn't supposed to be that good you certainly sold it to me... she looks fab! Your finish paint job to date I think.
