Lovely,how did you do the intake ring:idea:

thanks - ok so what made the difference was the last attempt! I did the same thing ie sand the nose ring smooth, airbrush matt black, airbrush Tamiya X1 gloss black over that and when dry this time I put on a top coat of Klear and left it 24 hours to cure. The Klear made the difference as I then sprayed Alclad Chrome and got the above result whereas before the same paint came out 'dull'.

many thanks for all your kind comments - gratefully appreciated! Its the first Lightning I have built I can say I like - all the others seemed a bit rubbish and have now been binned. I have another in the stash to do so now thinking about an interesting scheme for that one
