All looks very good Stuart. The more of your KP kit I see the more I like it. Oh dear, another purchase looms... :rolleyes:

Major mishap this evening...

 

20200131-220339-1.jpg

...nearly a whole tin of Colourcoats dark green enamel paint splatted over the carpet, SWMBO will not be pleased as the carpet is only 3 years. I must hasten to add, the carpet wasn't my choice, I inherited the room with the carpet when I moved out the shed.

Anyways, modelling goes on.

 

20200131-220352-1.jpg

Colourcoats enamel Ocean grey and dark green paints on. Tamiya black for the stripes. The black needs smoothing out a bit as it went down a bit dry for some reason. Let all that dry overnight with hopefully a pre-decal gloss coat going on tomorrow.

Ouch!
Time to invest in an el-cheapo cover?

To tame the carpet monster, I've put a floor protector from IKEA beneath my workbench. Suitably stained with Tamiya XF-1, and nothing on the flooring :P

The like is for the model, which is great, not the paint spill!

I did that a while back with a full pot of Tamiya XF1 Black. Got most out but can still see the evidence.

 

I hope the mishap doesn’t leed to too much strife!

 

But as you say, ‘the modelling goes on’. Looks very good. Your invasion stripes look fine (I say this   A bit ruefully as I’ve just noticed mine are a tad wide, or too far out on the wings on Old Crow. Too late now!’)

Oh bugger, Stuart! A waste of such great paint! ;). Great progress, though. She is starting to look really very good.

By way of moral support I took the Vax to our carpets this weekend at the direction of Mrs RR and found a few spots here and there that only white spirit would remove! Er, I wonder they were? ;)

No strife Chalie. My hole, my mess, I pay...when i want a new floor.

Yeah but ho-hum, occupational hazard.

Exactly. Fortunately, I had enough for this build and hopefully next. Better prepare for a Colourcoats order.

Vax to our carpets

Thanks for the encouragement but I would be Vaxing for ages. As long as I don't drop anything on the floor, I don't see it :rofl:

 

Let's get back to proper stuff...

Decals on and settling nicely. Mustn't forget those bloody nav lights i sanded off.

And here we are...

Exhausts in. Sticky-outy bits on; undercarriage, wheels, doors, pitot, prop, canopy and the whip aerial. Their are bits I could've done better, always room for improvement.

 

#1 in the GB is now done.

 

Thanks for tagging along guys.

Looking very neat Stuart, I like the bulkhead idea of masking each end of the cockpit, I must remember and try that on my builds

Hey, that's a great result. I like this kind of overload of colours. Looking at fine models like yours I start believing that RAF Mustangs can look colourful.
