Looks really great. Can't tell that it was dropped and repaired. Excellent on the shading. Most impressed with the paint.

Hi, 

 

Thanks, really chuffed with how it all came out. A bit slow on progress now, stencil data going on and desperately trying to find a replacement canopy but to no avail as I just know it's going to ruin the overall look 😣

Long shot I know but does anyone know if academy E canopy is a similar fit or even better an exact fit 😄

 

Or even someone that does vacform?

Quick question as things are slow going at mo and life gets in the way, hope someone can help?! I've seen a lot of photos of eagles in theatre on ops with heavy wear areas with primer poking through the grey. Anyone know a colour match for this or mix to achieve?

These pictures were taken different years and backgrounds. One was complete sunshine and the other was overcast. Camera settings were the same with different results in color. My thought would be to do your best on color shading.

 

All the best

sometimes does look white though? I know internal surfaces are white but do externals get two differing coats??

Most excellent work! Going to be a stunner when finished. Outstanding on the shading and wear.

Finished 👍 hope to get some proper pics up soon of completed build! 

 

Gotta Say, I loved this revell kit. Apart from dropping it on its wing early on, the only trouble I have had has been the pesky clear parts which I feel lets this kit down due to so much flash on mine and the split canopy in the box. Not sure if all kits are same but I feel this one slipped the quality control on that front.
