A little more today. 😎

Here’s the first pass of blue on a chest section.

Gaining a deep lustre  as the colour went on. 😍

Nice! 🥰

more white sections.

Skirt.

Mid section.

And other bits.

the red chest parts got a first coat of yellow to add “warmth” to the final colour.

and then red.

The neck and vent sections got a blast of light grey.

The main chest area got a rich and lighter blue.

And the front.

That’s it for now. I did a bit on the Hurri before to coating ready for weathering. 🥳 Thanks for popping by. Hope you’re enjoying the build.

take care and as always.

Happy Modelling.

Hey. After a few days away with the fam today is a rest day and you know what that means. 😀

more of this. ⚡🤖

feet next on the bits list.

49298198107_b1c2f24104_b.jpg

Ping!!

49297999851_d775e4e843_b.jpg

looking good.  Maybe the chest looks a bit too grubby but I’ll sort that out when it’s assembled. 😇

49298198062_9663f9be2d_b.jpg

Taking about assembly, here we go and guess what? I scooped a bit which meant......pegs! 🤣

49297513833_963406e98f_b.jpg 49297997871_45d421c4f4_b.jpg

I had to run a little TET in the break to weld it back together. 
I have never come across “rub on” transfers on model kits. They are a bit odd as I found out when a chunk of one came off on my finger. 🤨 never mind it’s meant to look worn so.

49297997266_37746fb3d9_b.jpg

For those with a keen eye will notice that I had put the legs on backwards. So.

49298000056_2c6bec1bd3_b.jpg

And now the rear.

49297997691_4f3bd8a719_b.jpg

Looking nice.

49297997206_4cd087a324_b.jpg

I really need those feet now. 😂

I’m planning some weather powders too after a bit more of a clean up.

This is were we are as of now.

49297514208_2f2c787147_b.jpg

Hope you’re all having a lovely time off.

more later 🤞

thanks for following and all comments welcome.

Johnny.

More done before the dog walk.

This thing comes with three types of decal/ sticker which is super different to my standard plane. 🤪

you get rub on things. (madness) clear stickers. (CRaZy) and opaque stickers (total bonkers) I’ll not be using the opaque stickers as I have to draw the line somewhere. 🤨🧐

The rub on ones go on quite well although there is no room for error. 🤪

you begin by cutting them out then carefully putting them in place on the kit.

(well this is how I did it, I might be wrong)

49298779641_abc2592f78_b.jpg

Then hopefully without moving the transfer you rub lightly with a pencil.(Seemed like the best choice at the time)

49298780921_88e1b8eba5_b.jpg

Then you remove the backing paper and I rolled over with a cotton bud and cut into panel lines with a scalpel blade.

49298982312_9729321c42_b.jpg

not bad. I prefer water slide as the window of error is a lot smaller but there we are. 😆 The see through stickers are a bit more rubbish. I pop them off the sheet then cut them down the best I can, then stick them on. 

49298779666_dddcdc49b0_b.jpg

here are some danger signs on the shoulder pads. 
I decided to start popping parts together.

49298982372_81958efaee_b.jpg

The light was glorious this morning. 😍

An arm went on. Not too far so need to top coat and I’m not done knocking back yet. 

49298983602_77776d0fa0_b.jpg

I’m beginning to like this thing coming together now.

49298983552_6f6b6eff15_b.jpg

still needs more knocking back but I think it’s getting where I want it to be. 😍

The head got primed then added to the feet pile. 

49298982367_253d305f73_b.jpg

Back to weapons. 

49298982552_29c66c04ce_b.jpg

these seem to be some kind of crotch shot guns! 🤪

assembled and folded. There going to look good painted.

49298780651_9e58af2fcb_b.jpg

I decided to assemble the stand as it will make it easier to dab the marks away and check the fit.

49298294883_7a2f369bf8_b.jpg 49298982342_7852c79f84_b.jpg

I’m not planning on using the stand as I might do a base.

49298780886_14ffe98dcf_b.jpg

But we shall see. 🌳🌲😇😀

I thought this was nearly done but there seems to be quite a lot left.

49298293853_2bcaeeb25c_b.jpg

There are wing things, a shield and a gun left to do. Now where’s that dog?

49298983932_231a4df805_b.jpg

🐶.

Thanks for popping in. more later on.

take it easy folks and as always. Happy modelling.

 

Johnny.

Thanks. I am actually getting back to grips with it. It’s an odd build, that’s for sure. 🤪

Hi guys.

a little more this morning and last night.

Zero walked. 😍

49303559143_df8484c205_b.jpg

Then after a spit of lunch decided to get the wing bits built.

49304043776_d0dfc554d6_b.jpg

Blimey there about as BIG as the geezer himself. 😳

I think they can be posed in different states.

49304048846_e2665ab91d_b.jpg

They look cool on the suit.

49303558358_700775962a_b.jpg

I assembled the rear rockets.

49303563613_2fdd196a58_b.jpg

And checked the fit. ( Not as though you. Red to really )

49304256052_7dd5fc03a1_b.jpg

And the other side.

49304261017_2155b58aba_b.jpg

And then the other wing! 😇

49303563653_0c89833102_b.jpg

A little more has been done but I’m headed for second breakfast. 😆

hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve and a happy new year.

all the best.

 

Johnny.
