Very nice Shellie - can't wait to see the masking come off :)

I gave the build some highlights, mixing a little white into the grey and azure blue paint. Then once dry, with fingers crossed removed the masking, and I'm pretty happy with the results.

I have just sealed the paintwork in, and tomorrow plan to mask her up again for the black stripes.

Today I carefully masked up the build and gave the invasion stripes a coat of black. As usual it sprayed well and I am hoping it hasnt bled.

I have been working on the Wyvern, in between home schooling, working online and building the Victor (the latter has taken up most of my creative time if I'm honest!). So, with the black stripes down I carefully unmasked the build, preying there was no bleeds onto the rest of the paint work🤞....... And luckily, there wasn't!

And I have to say I'm pretty happy with the result! Now onto decals, the nose and undercarriage.

Superb reveal there Shellie. Removing masking is always a big step, sometimes with a few anticipated challenges to resolve, other times a joy!

 

Great progress on this superb looking aircraft. You can tell I love a Wyvern, yes?

Since my last post I have been a busy bee working on the Wyvern. Firstly I applied the decals. These were fantastic, easy to apply, left the backing paper well and settled smoothly with Micro Sol. Once they were dry, I sealed them in with Quick Shine gloss varnish. Then it was time for some subtle weathering. For this i mixed up a dirt wash and began a panel line pin wash. Then when that was dry, I added some rust patches in the wheel wells.

Happy with the effects, I carefully masked the props to airbrush the yellow tips and gave the spinner an undercoat of white.

Once the undercoat was dry I airbrushed the spinner red. The white undercoat worked a treat, the red took well and looked vibrant.

I then began attaching the undercarriage and undercarriage doors. This area of the kit is fantastic, everything attaches easily and has nice locating pins. Happy with the struts, I attached the wheels, so finally she could sit on all 3 wheels.

Then, with the red paint dry I built the nose and props and secured them the aircraft.

Nearly there, only the wing assembly and varnish and shes done.

The time had come to mount the folding wings on the pins, and encourage them to stay in the right position. There are 2 small holes in the outer section of wing, which are designed to slot onto the pins on the small section of wing near the fuselage. Now they fit together really well, but the holes are not very deep, so once connected it all feels slightly flimsy. However, they are on and in position. With these set in place, my final task of giving her a coat of satin varnish was a simple one. I mixed up some Vallejo satin with thinner and sprayed away.......and here she is, complete!

I have really enjoyed this build, the kit was really good quality and went together well. Most of all I have grown to love this unique looking bit of kit. Thanks for joining me, I will post some more photos in the ready for inspection forum.
