airfix gloster meteor fr.9 1/48


Recommended Posts

started the varnishing, tamiya x22, by applying a couple of coats to the top and once that has dried i can turn it over and do the underside. not very glossy, don't know if that is right or not but it is going down well.

 

as a try out i did the engine stand and one of the engines and applied a little weathering. i think they have come out really well.

started the decals today.

how does that old saying go, the right decals not necessarily in the right places. some are not quite on the mark.

got most of the major ones on, lots of the little ones left though.

after a lay off due to a family bereavement i'm closing in on the end of this.

the last few weeks have been a struggle to get time so its not turned out as well as i had hoped. 

it also felt like there was more decals than parts, which was frustrating enough putting them, but to watch some of them come off during the weathering was well let me just say i was a little peeved.

feel i've went a little heavy and uneven of the weathering, but its all part of the learning curve.

 

thanks

laying this one to rest, had a few issues, mostly my fault but some was the kits.

major problem though was that it took me too long, a trying time all round that led to some poor decisions and loss of focus at times.

heavy handed with the weathering is being polite and varnishing needs a bit of work.

 

i'd give the kit 8.5 out of 10 and although i'm happy with the build as i can see some progress from the last one i'd give myself 7 out of 10.

Looks great Ken!  Looks like a nice kit.

 

 

Thanks, 

It's a very good kit, only one thing stops it being a great kit, the glass at the front for the camera needs sanding down a lot to get the nose and camera deck to fit.
