  1. More progress, prop has been painted up with its unique blue tips, the eagle eyed will see a slight problem with it I might fix later but its really done my head in so I might leave it - I don't think anyone will notice. Gun Camera got some glass, just a dab of Micro Kristal Klear but I might add some UV glue as its not very shiny. Decals on some of the weapons now, the SUU-14's are almost done but I have had a few issues with them, one just shattered upon hitting water?? Napalm bombs were fine, not major issues, anyway some pix for you. Next up will be a satin varnish and then onto weathering it up so still time to balls everything up
  2. Thatโ€™s looking rather sweet mate, weathering is looking superb ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Not really an update on the build but more like " New Airbrush Day " I acquired a Iwata HP-TH brush today - Only used about twice so its like new. It really shifts paint so will be great for varnishing up the Spad. Need to get used to it before committing to a build
  4. MLG Gear doors get some attention, used a Gundam marker for the red trim, dead easy Started the decals on the assembled weapons, namely the SUU-14's. Master barrel 20mm cannon barrels painted up and fitted, some dry brushing to be done yet. Enjoy
  5. Very nice paint job indeed, very very nice ๐Ÿ‘
  6. Itโ€™s called โ€œGSIโ€ mate, expensive but worth it - Get Someone In ๐Ÿ˜‰ But we changed to Eggshell as gloss paint has also now gone all woke. Whatโ€™s wrong with a few nasty chemicals eh ๐Ÿ˜—
  7. Nice start Keith, the red is looking rather good mate ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Blimey, struggling to keep up with your modelling output ๐Ÿ˜ฎ How many is this that you have on the go, you are a machine ๐Ÿคช
  9. Here is where I'm at Next up more varnish to seal in the panel line wash. Enjoy
  10. Fitted the canvas cover to the canopy mech, almost a shame to cover all the nice 3D printed pipework that Eduard included. Enjoy
  11. Decals sealing in with some gloss varnish and the panel line washes complete, I used a mixture of washes some AK and some Tamiya. A few more bits glued on so its getting close to weathering up now and those all important exhaust stains. Going to play with washable agent to see if I can get it looking right.
  12. Donโ€™t panic mate, I shall be on the Armour builds soon, just getting up some mojo to restart the 436 build again and Iโ€™m finding building Vietnam USAF stuff just the thing. Normal service shall resume (At some point) ๐Ÿซก
  13. Cracking work John, this was a potential next acquisition for myself, I might just have to grab a Eduard Mustang for the future ๐Ÿ‘
  14. Decal time, that is all the main airframe decals in place apart from the prop, these are still settling in with a good swamping of Daco Strong solution. I'll leave them over night and then seal them in with some gloss in preparation for weathering. I'll be adding a few more stencil decals from the spares collection as the Spad has a lot more than what you get from the AM set and Tamiya.
  15. Walk this way ! Walkways sprayed up using Tamiya NATO Black, getting close to gloss coat and decals soon. This arrived yesterday so you might get a hint on a future project? Hint- YGBSM
