Hasegawa B-47 Stratojet

The white is an interesting idea. Never thought of it, but gives that look the old photos have.

How did the Pavla cockpit fit, much adjusting? I have the kit with Pavle cockpit to build one day.

Hi, thx for commenting - Minor sanding of some flash on the sides and smooth the aft section that butts up to the forward landing gear bay - the ladder entry point doesn't align well with the hatch opening on the fuselage, it's about 3mm too far forward  - I used filler to close the gap there and it turned out okay....it was a nice addition in my opinion...

Hi, thx - yes - very thinned acrylic white -I mottled it with brush and used it about twice as heavy on the seams (scientifically speaking I coated the seams twice - the Hasegawa kit has raised panel lines) - anyway, it kinda looks like the start of oxidation...

Hi, thanks!  it's a highly polished gloss black undercoat,  Alclad and a white acrylic wash(very thin mix) 

Alclad to a plethora of aluminiums/silvers, could you be a bit more specific...

Nice Stratojet BTW

Hi, - sorry, wasn't meaning to be vague - it was Alclad II Chrome lacquer for plastic - sprayed with an Iwata double action airbrush - it was sprayed onto Tamiya TS-14 gloss black applied straight from the rattle can. I prepped the unpainted plastic with triple grit sanding sticks till I had a high sheen (and still missed some blemishes over and over....) The Attempt at a new YP-38 I posted earlier is shown below - no white wash was used on this as it was intended to be straight off of the shop floor....same paint combo was used....spacer.png

Glad to see the photos fixed for this; well worth the wait, and thank you so much for sharing how you got the NMF, it really does look the part.
