Thanks @giemme, @AliGauld and @elger.

 

Masking mojo today.

 

I decided to mask in and out.

 

Did the outside of the windscreen then used the remaining mask as a template.

 

DSCN2791

 

DSCN2792

 

DSCN2793

 

You get the picture.

 

Then the good lady wife brought me light refreshments.

 

DSCN2790

 

Once refreshed I finished off the masking.

 

Windscreen.

 

DSCN2794

 

DSCN2795

 

And canopy.

 

DSCN2796

 

DSCN2797

 

Another break then on with a bit more I hope.

 

A little audio entertainment while I sort out what next.

Now you're talking. The best band ever to come out of Townhill and covering Joni. Great stuff.

Nor mine Alistair, But it came with PCM`s so I used the spare ones to do the inside of the canopy as well.

 

Thanks @elger and @giemme.

 

Hairy stick out and Clears added.

 

DSCN2798

 

DSCN2799

 

And while waiting for those to dry I spotted that I had lost a bit out of the U/C bay.

 

DSCN2800

 

Yep, inner left.

But as I had not glued them in place was able to remove its mirror image.

 

DSCN2801

 

So at least I have a template to work to.

 

Silver out next for I.D. lights and cockpit lights too

 

DSCN2802

 

The roughness won`t show on the I.D. lights as its the reverse side.

 

Stay safe.

 

Simon.

Nice progress,  Simon! :clap:

Bummer for the lights, but they're underneath,  out of sight... :winkgrin:  They do look good, though - way better than the painted on ones on my Mustang.

Hope the health is doing ok Simon, the modelling continues to impress.

The health bit is just one of those things Tony, I had suffered from it since 96 so have got use to it.

The kit is slowly getting there, I think.

Looking fantastic. All those disparate parts look like they will converge to form something stunning. Sorry to hear about your health issues but you sound like you’re dealing with life’s issues without losing stride. 👊

 The lights look fine as they are but would they pop out if you poked them with a cocktail stick and a spot of pressure?  My inner @perdu showing. 😆

 

Onwards and upwards.

Thanks lads, the comments are most welcome.

Off to work we go, rubber black loaded and used,

 

Cockpit floor.

Tyres.

 

DSCN2817

 

Then masking..

Before letting loose with some home made interior green XF 77 + XF3.

 

DSCN2819

 

The seat.

 

DSCN2820

 

DSCN2821

 

And finally the U/C roof bit, it becomes part of the cockpit floor.

Let that lot dry before figuring out what next to do.

 

Until then, another blast from the past.

Thanks @giemme.

 

While I had time, out came the XF 3 Yellow again, by itself this time.

 

DSCN2823

 

Prop and bits.

 

I then noticed that I had made a boo boo on the cockpit floor.

Rectified this and also remembered to paint the rudder pedals too.

 

DSCN2824

 

DSCN2825

 

I can`t see any more spraying been done today but I will see what I can do later,

 

Stay safe.

Excellent work Simon.

I didn’t realise that I’d got so far behind so stopped the ‘ likes ‘ before I inundated you.

Bad luck on the wheel well part but I’m sure you’ll be able to replace it, one of mine was badly crushed in the bag and was quite tricky to repair.

Hope you’re getting better.

Stay safe.

Well, sorry for no posting but mojo was lacking.

But today I got back on the bench and did some more.

 

The I.P. coaming lights added and just need touching up.

I.P. itself had the rudders added and ready to fitted to the coaming.

 

DSCN2836

 

Seat masked ready for some Olive Drab.

And the cockpit rack/frame was readied for the same colour.

Every one stay safe and cool.

 

 

Simon.
