Recommended Posts

Joining you with this kit.

Which has remained in my stash since it came out in 1997.

Two finish options - both Europe Lizard.  I've not decided which as yet.

Problems with my new photohost  are preventing me updating progress.

The airframe is together now, recognisable as an A-10.

Photos are being taken.

I've found a long winded workaround, so here's the fuselage

And the wing Boeing assembled

I'm probably overdoing the lead.

Bulk upload of the backlog.

First the engine bits being prepared.

Next the wings being fitted.

And the airframe after a bit of smoothing and fettling.

Tim type masking: 

I've scaled the painting instructions to same size as the model, and cut around the green areas last night.

I have to say that the shape of the A-10 does not lend itself to this type of masking.

 

An early afternoon clock-off, and out with the airbrush for some dark green, Humbrol 163

I did the fuselage freehand, unmasked.

Tomorrow, on with the grey.

Masked up again ready for Grey tomorrow.

Some paper masks. Some hard tape masks, and some freehand airbrushing (artistry).

Rain stops airbrushing.😢. 

Why do weekends always do that?

Not as badly as initial forecast, hence airbrushed grey.

Well I liked both so much, I did something that doesn't happen very often.

AFRES scheme on one side. . .

And ANG scheme on the other.
