Finally (!!) made a start on this. Managed to get some shades of Alclad on some of the internal pieces and also added an enamel wash here and there to pick out the details and add a bit of dirt.

Image

The finished internal parts allowed me to join some of the subsections.

Image

Next is getting some filler into any gaps and to let all the glued joints and filler settle for a few days but for the boring bit start… sanding! :o0

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey lads,

A quick update on this one. It's still active anyway :lol: Been getting caught up in rescribing (curves around curves and so on @o) ) but I think the brunt of it is done now so things should start progressing a bit faster.

I did the usual on the wingtip lights. Added a shim of white plasticard to save me painting the inside of the lights. Two lights drilled in each bit of clear plastic then clear paint dropped in the holes. Sanded flush and polished. Bobs your uncle!

Image

The wing components

Image

Wing subsection complete! [smilie=banana.gif] Painted areas already masked off to protect during the build process. It saves me doing them later when the parts are more awkward to handle and reach.

Image

Rudder installed but I had to add a a very small thin bit of plastic to even up the edge (I probably cut it badly off the sprue). This was then sanded and blended in to an aerodynamic trailing edge.

Image

That's all for now. Hopefully I'll get all the subsections mated soon and move onto the painting stage while the weather is good.

Thanks for looking!

Yeah and the thin strip of plastic to replace sanded off bit is a great idea too!

I haven't forgot, this is still going! :D This is just a fairly pointless update. It finally got primed over the weekend with some Mr Base White 1000. I'd usually prime with a grey primer but a white primer will help massively with the the yellow paint.

Image

That's the boring bit done… sanding, filling, sanding, priming, filling, sanding, priming :o0 Next up is the paint and hopefully I'll get the yellow on this week.

Thanks for looking!

Don't envy you painting yellow. I just don't get on with it :)
