"We're gonna need a bigger boat!" Seriously, Johnny, she's looking great! Glad to see you wrestled the codes into submission :) and looking forward to the home straight!

 

And a belated happy birthday, too! Enjoy the beer, I'm quite envious :) 

 

Cheers,

Mark

Typhoon is looking great. The teeth decals around the front look like quite an elaborate operation with many curves. Well done on that! 👌

Wow, Sorry to be late for the bithday party Dear Spad !!

Soooo Happy Teethy and beery Birthday....

Your typhoon is looking great !!

Week end buzy at work, so I did'nt have time for BM

I cleaned the windows because swallows will be back soon, I've 6 nests....

But your ravens did such a mess.....:deadhorse:

Then, I hear that storks are back... A bit early since we've had -1° this night....

They stay a week or so before resuming their travel up North....

Thanks for the attention !!

Hope to see you at SMW in 2022... Havin' some Rocket fuel !!!

Sincerely.

Nice teeth! She's looking very purposeful now. 

Envious of the beer!

Thanks. I’m a bit scared of the beer to be fair. I think I have enough to last all year. 🤪

Thanks. I don’t know how people are meant to put decals on with just water. 🙀 Almost done now. I need to do some RFIs when it stops snowing. 🤣❄️

Thanks Giorgio. I must be enjoying this a little too much. Pretty much done and only on page four. 😀

Actually that part was quite nicely orchestrated by Airfix. Bravo to them.

 Thanks for the kind words. 🥰

Thanks CC. Any chance you can come and do my windows? I don’t think I can put it off much longer.  6 nests, wow! You’re a lucky man. 🦅Glad you’re enjoying a teeth in the wind build. A meet up would be great! 🤩

Johnny, I dont know what I like more--the shark mouth or the Brewdog--either way this build is moving toward an epic finish🙌--best, Erwin

Thanks Erwin. I can highly recommend their favorites bundle on the BD website. Very cheap over Easter. 🍺

Good evening everyone.

 As they say all good things come to an end. I knew this was going to be quick but this is almost @CedB pace.  (Well, Maybe not that fast) 🏃‍♂️💨

I don’t get much time at the bench due to work at the moment but every stollen minute is a joy! This morning I got a snap with all the decals on.

Such a lovely shape. 😍

She’s got a gloss coat last night so now I can weather her. Flory time. 🤩😀😇

51114109973_3a3255785e_b.jpg

I used a wide brush and used it decanted into a flat dish.

the bits and bobs also got some action.

51114989705_b73154a7a7_b.jpg

The last few bits also got a wash. I’ll need to add some black tamiya wash to the exhausts and legs after knocking back. 

51114110013_eff695aa23_b.jpg

I’ll also need some Tamiya weather powders. But only a few touches.

One more session and she’ll be there:

knock back; powders; matt coat; unmask and done.  😇😊

Before I go I’ll let you into what’s next.

you’ve probably noticed a few builds around here for the 453rd Museum.  Well this is what I’ll be Building for Jim.

There are some extras in the box too.

🖤🤍

51114110018_0bf495bcca_b.jpg

Ooooh exciting.

 

Take care folks, thanks for dropping by and as always. Happy modelling.

 

 Johnny.

There could be a battle between you and @CedB for speed building.

 

Big Mustang on the horizon...

 

Simon.

That’s a fight I could never win. 😃 There’s only one Speedy Wizard and it ain’t me. 🥳

Heyyy youuuu gguuuyyyssssss! 
Apart from the Red and green tip lights we’re done! 😍 Once again I’ll sign off completely when I manage to get around to the RFI. That makes two I need to do now. The sun is getting warmer so photo time is looking more likely. 📸  so any way down to the nitty gritty. 
I spent some time knocking back

the Flory wash to how I wanted and popped on the props.

51115989954_20b18ff8e7_b.jpg

The bits and bobs (tm) got the same treatment.

51115990034_e8fa686b71_b.jpg

The UC started coming together.

51117034265_d153e720a7_b.jpg

The main airframe then got a protective matt coat.
The UC then got glued in place. Which reminds me, I need to add some TET to the wheels as they are just pushed on at the moment.

51115989864_02aa608ebc_b.jpg

The Canopy popped off with only a little touch ups. The masking came off too.

51116152138_51300eeb83_b.jpg

Mmmmmm shiny.

51115674172_ef7ce13f85_b.jpg

The exhaust stacks got glued in after a black wash. I really like the way they fitted.

51115674197_b1a155044f_b.jpg

The belly got pebble dashed with detail.

51115674217_bebeda3d0e_b.jpg

And eventually she’s up on her pins. ❤️

51117034070_daf8877746_b.jpg

In this shot you can see I’ve been a little lazy and painted the wing tip lights chrome. I’ll clear colour them tomorrow. To be fair I think that works well at this scale. 

51116151948_80a7330c28_b.jpg

I couldn’t decide what to do with the canopy so I’ll leave it unglued so I can move it about when I get bored.

51115989989_0d1787fcc2_b.jpg

Lovely. 🤩 I’m happy. I sincerely hope she’s bought a smile to your face Alain @corsaircorp .  On top of that I hope if you followed along you enjoyed the build too. I have my first Covid Jab tomorrow so it’s all a bit exciting. I’ll see if I can get the Pony thread up as I’m already fiddling plastic and finding it hard not to start.

Thanks for tagging along it’s been a real joy to build this little wonder. I’ll post links and what not here do if you fancy the Mustang build I’d love to have you all along.

 

All the best and as always.

 

Happy Modelling.

Second that.  You somehow make top class painting and finishing look effortless Johnny.
