It needs to be a pen with ink that doesnt bleed through the paint to much although it needs to bind into the paint so it just doesn't rub off . Im going to try this out as i can see plenty of times this could be very handy

Yet another technique learned. You must be getting excited now Arnold with the finishing line in sight?

Yes I am. But there are still some things to do. I still have to do some decals (the swastika's and stencilling). Most of the time now needed is for the drying after a new coat of klear/paint.

I always wait a day to let the coat completely cure. But If it's drying there are so much more other things to do, like for example detail panting of the undercarriage.

I used this technique in the past fior the undercarriage doors on a US Navy plane. They all have red lining and on a white background that is ideal.

I have done some work yesterday. It were all the decals. I still have to do some small decals this evening. I almost forgot those for the trimtabs.

Than there will be anothere Klear coat. And then the panellines can be put in. After that it is another clear (dull) coat and than put all the small stuf on.

But that is a job for the weekend hopefully. Because I don't have any time left this week. So there will be no update with pictures untill the weekend.

These are the pictures taken during and after putting the sludge on. This is for the panellines.

The sludge is easy to use and you don't get that awfull smell of white spirit in your hole house.

Sludge is 5 parts water, 3 parts fairy and 2 parts tamiya paint. If you use it you should use it on a smooth surface (like with decals). You can wipe it away with some moist paper towel.

It just took me about a hour to do the 190.

This how far I have got today. Now I still have to seal it in (later today) with a new coat of dull clear paint and after this it will be finishing the models with putting al the small stuff on.

And als doing some suttle weathering.

Thanks for the sludge recipe. Guess what I'll be trying on my next build?

Steve

You just have to remember that it hase to be used on a smooth {shiny} Surface. You can use al sorts of mixed colours as well so there is no limitation on what colour you are going to use. I mostly use a mix of black and dark brown. I let it dry for about 15 minuts and then remove the rest. If it isn't enough you can always resuply it. I mix it in a clean tamiya jar. After use just close the jar and it's reusable just stir it and it's ready for use. My Sludge is now a couple of months old. If you mix it don't shake but stir it otherwise you all get bubles in it from the fairy.

Hi Guys,

Here are a few pictures I made a couple of days ago. There are some pictures of the undercariage and the fixing of the cockpit hood.

Here are two pictures of the cockpit hood after putting the head rest on. This was done with some streched sprue. the excess was cut of after the whole part hade dryed.

Again some pictures of the almost finished model.

The armament and the cockpit hood was placed and the weathering was done. I also placed the propellor and the antenna wire. There is a small cone shaped piece near the end of the wire. I made this one from streched sprue. I first dirilled it than filled it more to shape and then cut it of and placed it on the wire before I glued it to the tail.

Nearly there. I just have to paint the antenna wire the right colour and do a little bit of paint chipping and then it's finished.

I will place the pictures of the finished model this weekend.

It was a joy and great privelige to work with you guys. There are some realy great builds in this groups build and I hope to do it again some time in the future.

Absolutely stunning Arnold.

I'll certainly be using this as a reference when I get round to doing my PCM one.
