Hi All 

Finally got some paint on Both were primed white . Second coat of white gloss is on but will need a fine sand and another coat. Aircraft grey on the wings is done . I decided to paint before assembly as the dry fit looked pretty good with no or minimal filling . Decaling will also be done at this stage.

Thanks for looking

Hello Mr B 

The fuselage is two piece top and bottom , went together like a dream no filler just a bit of sanding . Nose weight is included and just drops into place . Plenty of time to add yours . 

Looking forward to it . Which boxing did you order ?

Hi All

Finally got some time on these two after a delay due to the decal placement instructions disappearing for a couple of days (Modelling Gremlins again) The first decaling session yielded this. Hope to for more done tomorrow

That's an unusual breakdown of the fuselage parts for an airliner kit Martin.  I'll bet it makes the job of cleaning up the joint a bit more of a pain

Colourful choice of livery too.

Hi Chris 

The fit of the upper and lower fuselage parts was good so clean up was minimal . The liveries are OOB. Thanks for looking

I had some time for some more decaling .The major decals on the Solaseed aircraft are done . Skynet will take longer as there are a couple of layers to be done . Plan is to complete the first layer then seal with a coat of clear before moving on.

Thanks for looking

Hi All 

Just a little progress .

Solaseed has tail feathers fitted . In hindsight this would have been easier before the upper and lower fuselage halves were joined . Clear coat has been applied . Both sets of wings masked off ready for more paint . Decaling continues on Skynet slowly. Thanks for looking
