  3. Finished tonight Out of Box,Invisible thread antenna,Tape belts Xtracrylics Dark earth, Dark Green,Testors Enamel Sky, Finished with Testors lacquer Dullcoat Kit Decals which were very nice. 264 Sq Late August 1940 Comments Always welcome Thanks for Looking Bill :smiley14:
  4. NMF is Alclad Airframe Aluminum over Alclad Gloss Black Primer. I also used some different shades on panels, Highly polished Aluminum,etc Airframe Aluminum was easier to mask over than Highly Polished Aluminum. Was able to use Tamiya tape no issues. Had to buff some panels with SNJ powder after some type of feed through that scared the Alclad. Worked OK I do love the SNJ powder .. Cheer Bill

  9. Thanks Guys The Canopy and lower clear parts are masked with Bare Metal foil hand cut on canopy,raised panels were very helpful. Monogram canopy was very clear. I used Testor acrylics for RLM 65 and RLM 71, and I used Gunze for RLM 70. Waiting a few days for the Paints to cure before futuring. Thanks for Comments Bill
  10. A few updates: Japanese tape consumption Some Bits. Used Baremetal Foil around the prop bases Now waiting a few days for the Gunze RLM 70 to cure before futuring...2-3 days I hope will be enough. Comments always welcome Bill

  14. Thanks for the comments Guys This is the Hobbycraft Kit. The paints were all Testors Acrylics thinned with Tamiya thinner. Final coating was Testors Spray "Lusterless" decanted and thinned with lacquer thinner before airbrushing. I made the intake covers,H.U.D. ,Seat straps. It does have a soft interior but with the hood down you really can't see anything. Thanks for the comments on the Bugaboos. That was some masking residue and I brushed it off. Thats all I added. Cheers Bill

  22. The Beat Goes On.. Few little details I like MV Lenses for Formation lights after boring out the raised bumps in the plastic Futured Aircraft. The red looks discolored but it is not, just weird photo effects The black will be Alclad in the engine area...Painted the black then Futured it .We will see PS This is a LARGE aircraft in 48th Cheers Bill
  23. Thanks Guys Yes it is the Monogram Kit, and includes all its challenges plus the resin pieces also. This is not a Shake and bake........More like a Hope and Pray. First coat of primer showed some serious challenges. More updates may take awhile. Cheers Bill
