Hello Dears,

So, here we go...

White primer for the stripes !!

WP_20190226_21_58_58_ProWP_20190226_21_59_11_Pro

And there's another lady who receive a coat...

Better take off your coat, No, not this time Gal, and leave your hat on if you want to !!:whistle:

 

WP_20190226_22_56_02_Pro

She suit very well in black...

And as say a Belgo British singer...

Elle adore le noir

pour sortir le soir !!

 

WP_20190226_22_56_10_Pro

I think that my surfaces are reasonably good given the orange skin of the KH plastic !

Still some tiny scratches, I will let the primer dure thoroughly !!

Well, have a great modelling time !!

Sincerely.

Much better than my SH version CC, the canopy on mine was a bit narrow, I should have inserted pins to stretch it over but thought I could get away with it (I didn't).  TBH I should have found a much thinner after-market and replaced it with that.  Looking good now though...

Hello Dears,

As I post this pic, I Wonder myself...

Why the hell showing That I painted some white… On white primer ???

WP_20190302_22_53_08_Pro

This time, I'll let the white paint curing for some days before masking it

Then I'll prime the beast in grey… And then Painting… Sky and EDSG !! And stripes :rage:

It's not really often that I have 2 kits on the painting booth at the same time….

Have a great modelling time, enjoy the Sunday !!

Aaaaand take care !!

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

again some maskings...:tumble::tumble:

WP_20190306_21_47_04_Pro

The firefly is now primed in pale gray ! I will try Something with the Tamiya accent panel line.

I will no longer use it since I encountered some 🤬:mg:🤬 with this stuff, at least on a painted model...

And Oh;;; Some maskings again…. 😰

WP_20190306_23_09_08_Pro

Funny enough… My dogs are really out of proportions

.

Sirius is really towering over angel….

Now figuring out if he can have her as meal ???

.

Huh !!

Have a great modelling time.

Sincerely.

Great going. What was the issue with the Tamiya accent panel line?

As for the dogs, a meal wasn't what I was thinking...:shrug:

Hello Stuart,

I tried it (the tamiya stuff, not the dog) on a Life color painted kit and it ate the paint

Then I tried it on a Xtracrylics painted Spitfire and once again the paint was ripped out..:rant:

After that, I tried Flory, Thanks to Johnny the Spad, And I put the tamiya stuff aside.

I don't like wasting, so I'll try a preshading with it on the Firebox.

A last thing, it's drying very quickly, and thus I found it hard to correct when needed.

Sincerely.

CC

Hello Dears !!

Seemingly, it has worked well !!

WP_20190308_22_47_21_Pro

second attempt only at a kind of pre shading… Let's see !!

WP_20190308_22_47_33_Pro

 Nokya, my great dane, used to have HER car, our tiny Faithfull Starlet seem to be her private coach...

IMG_20190308_134204

But in fact, today, she has to share the already cramped room

IMG_20190308_134151

Her face is really saying "Mom !! what have you done….

Who bet ?? A great Dane AND an Irish Wolf Hound in a tiny Starlet !!

Can be called done by Mrs CC:rofl2:

Sincerely.

CC

Hi CC 

Firefly looking good, great work.  Crikey when I was scrolling down I thought you had photographed a Shetland pony next to your dog for a brief moment and to see both large dogs in a starlet is brilliant.

 

Keep up the good work

All the best

Chris

Hello Dears !

Now ! That's a great place for ejection pins !

As the part is flat and level, it's easier to correct !!

WP_20190322_21_07_40_Pro

Well this is a bit less good...🤔

WP_20190322_21_07_56_Pro

Hello Dears,

Almost a yearago, this thread started this way ….

WP_20180412_23_52_14_Pro

And here we are today !!

WP_20180512_09_53_17_Pro

Hooops, no sorry wrong pic !!

WP_20190323_23_10_12_ProWP_20190323_23_10_00_Pro

Given the heavy chipping on the wing root, I was a bit frightened in getting the masking out.

But it's not too bad at all !

Enjoy a Sunny Sunday !

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

A day off in my evening work Week...

Bench time is mandatory !!

So, some painting corrections on this lady...

WP_20190327_22_32_22_Pro

I'm not confident because, when I was about to paint the sky.. I just see that I no longer have enough of X tracrylic one !!

As I am a FAA fan, I still have some Gunze one...

I've not been very Lucky when it's time to varnish différents brand of paint😰

Whatever, the stripes are Lifecolor

Aaaand….

WP_20190327_22_32_39_Pro

The rocket armour plates are painted in Revell...

Well Finger crossed !!

Thanks for your support Gents !!

It's greatly appreciated !!

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

another Brit classic car fixed by CC

WP_20190331_10_02_06_Pro

I think that my dear Colleague will appreciate

WP_20190331_10_02_28_Pro

On for new aventures !!

WP_20190331_09_42_41_Pro

However !! this cental Wheel nuts has Always sparked a bit of anxiety for me !!

However, I'm sure that @perdu has fixed more of these classic cars since, when I cross the channel, there are far more of these on the roads !!

 

Months ago, I scratched my head for making a bottle of rum for my Walrus !!

Now look, I've got 4 on behalf of the firebox !!

 

WP_20190331_21_53_50_Pro

well, I let you appreciate the différences between the Barracuda and the AZ guns !!

WP_20190331_20_56_49_Pro

 

for adding the Barra guns on the Firefly, you have to sand down the gun through very carefully, until the diameter are quite the same…

WP_20190331_20_44_59_Pro

moreover, the diameter of the kit parts is also irregular !

Here's the resulting job

WP_20190331_20_44_53_Pro

I put a peg in the gun

WP_20190331_20_49_28_Pro

Now, the guns are fitted

WP_20190331_22_19_28_Pro

Have a great modelling time !

Sincerely.
