I have done Alistair.

Well I cracked on with this kit, for what it`s worth is now becoming a bit of a mule in regards saving techniques LOL.

 

Stencils in place.

Well, the result was... more runs than a dysentery ward.

 

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!

 

This is really testing your patience Simon, I admire your stoicism! I think you're right, touch up the runs and call it done.

 

Best of luck!

It really is Charlie, but I look at it as a very steep learning curve to overcome these problems.

I have stuck it on the shelf of doom for now while I get the other ones done.

Simon, when I spray over masks, I first seal their edges by brushing on some clear gloss varnish, be it Future or Aqua Gloss - it helps preventing the paint runs. HTH

I don't suppose the real thing was either. Once the matt coat's on it will look a whole lot better.

 

Cheers,

Cheers lads, she has been a struggle but the sight of that light at the end of the tunnel is driving me there.

 

Thanks @KevinK, @elger, @Johnson, and @Dr. Quack.

Well the varnish dried overnight so on with the build.

Cockpit masking removed.

Not bad considering.

 

Wing tip lights have a dab of Silver prior to Green/Red Clear.
