  5. 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. 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

  19. 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
