  1. Hi All I've got round to painting this one. I don't think there will be a problem getting it finished by Sunday. Dave.
  2. Hi All, The Dark Green is on. It still needs a fair bit of touching up, it's such a big area to airbrush there a few bits that weren't covered properly. There's couple of areas like the wing tips, gun ports and the ranging radar to paint and then I can start on the decals. Dave.
  3. Hi All, Priming is done. The primer might be close enough to ana 43 to get away with only applying the Olive Drab to the top. Dave.
  4. Hi All, It's put together and ready for primer. Hopefully I'll be able to get some airbrushing done next week. Dave.
  5. Hi All, The cockpit's done. Putting the rest together won't take long. Dave.
  6. Hi All, My other two builds are at the airbrushing stage and I like to have something to build - I'm not a painting enthusiast. So I might as well make a start on another build. I've built this kit before in the AVG markings and it's quite straightforward, so I think I have a chance of finishing it in time. Dave.
  7. Hi All, I've put on the Dark Sea Grey. It looks patchy at the moment, but hopefully when the green is on it'll look OK. I haven't figured out yet which method to use for putting on the green. I want replicate the soft edge as best as possible in 1/32 scale and don't think Blu-Tak worms are going to do it at this scale. If I was using enamels, I'd do it freehand - but I've only got acrylics. Acrylics are a bit problematic for me with clogging etc... I need review my options. Dave.
  8. Hi All, The decals are on. It needs pitot, nav. lights etc., but apart from that it's done. Dave.
  9. Hi All, It's up on it's wheels now and most of the details have been painted. Next decals. Dave.
  10. Hi All, I've given it a coat of ADC Grey. Next a black radome and anti-glare panel. Dave.
  11. Oh, no, no....... I've looked at some pics of XH898 and it's shiny, very, very shiny. It's from Poundland - they do a small range of car paints - grey primer, black, white and silver and as you might expect they cost a pound each. After the Hunter and Javelin I've got about a 1/3rd of the can left, so it's doesn't go far - but it is cheap and does the job. Dave.
  12. Hi All, The underside is done. Masking this up is going to be a bit tricky there are a lot of curves in the line between the top camo. and the silver. Dave.
  13. Hi All, I've sprayed the underside. I haven't tried using rattle can silver before, but I think it's turned out OK. Dave.
  14. Hi All, Priming done. Silver undersides next. Dave.
  15. Hi All, Now primed and ready for paint. Next High Speed Silver undersides from a rattle can. Dave.
