Nice to finally have a photo of the Shaolin Modeling Monk! But which is which? Or more properly, who is who? Neither resembles your avatar!

You guys wanna chat on your own time? Kidding.

A marathon of masking and painting (a full day of masking) less time to paint but I'm fairly happy so far...decals would've been nice!

Here's some images of the work completed today;

Thanks folks!

I made up some company names and registrations (the reg's. are spurious because I lost a sheet of transfers.) Did I mention I used old sheets of dry transfer letters to get the names and reg's? Yup...that was tricky. I also borrowed a couple of escape hatch decals from a Amodel 1900 and the Canadian flags behind the office windows form a Matchbox DHC-6. The pimpin out is almost completed and detail work can probably begin soon (antennas, gear doors etc)

My references showed spoilers with a cross hatch on the upper wings. That looked like something I'd have to do;

I'll take that as a compliment coming from the scratch master!

Scratch master in my case is abbreviated to "schmaster", which better describes the level I tend to achieve :unsure:.

But, by all means, compliment verily and truly deserved, you are doing a brilliant job!

Thanks, very much!!

A while back...on another build (Twin Otter) I mentioned making my cabin windows from "Scotch Tape" by first laying a strip of tape on a easy release backing (Bare Metal Foil backing sheet in this case) So I took some pictures as I was making cabin windows for this model.

Here's the BMF backing sheet, with most of the bare metal foil used

look carefully, a strip of Scotch Tape is on the left side of the BMF backing

here, most of the tape has been cut and used on the model, using this sheet doesn't mark the glue on the tape and leaves it very clear

and, the tape cabin windows installed

Thanks a lot!

I'm certain the positive comments helped carry on through the build!

final details have been added, all the ones I could think of, I'm sure I missed things but for now...

The gear doors came in for a bit of work, they are a complicated set of doors and bi-fold doors and flaps etc.

Lovely! It's so exciting when these big boys come out of their masking tape and go ping. Congrats on an impressive and rare model. A couple of 1:1 ATRs flew over me today but I've never seen one in gentleman's scale.

Thanks for the explanation, so you basically cu a thin stip slightly wider and longer than the window line and lay over the openings? I suppose it is sealed with a closscoat?

Exactly Ray! Just trim it slightly wider than the window opening and your good to go.

but....no clear coat, the tape seam actually just kind of disappears quite nicely all by itself 

still looking at the Broplan Dassault Falcon 900 but waiting hopefully and patiently (a bit) from Amodel
