Hi

Whilst thinking of what to do to the burner cans on the B-1B I tinkered with the zero

1/ I painted the leading edge of the wings yellow.

2/ Painted the cannons and guns ready for fitting.

3/ Sprayed some exhaust stains on the side of the fuselage

Will post some progress pictures later

Tim.

Where's the pics Tim :P

OK Mish, Here's how it looks tonight..............

P8010255.jpg

Work done over the weekend and tonight:

Mast added

General weathering and dirt applied

Engine/Cowl/Prop added

Yellow painted on leading edge and "chipped" for wear

Matt coat applied and exhaust stain added on top (although that appears to have dried to a gloss finish)

Guns and cannons added.

Undercarraige and doors fitted

Looks good! What paint did you use for the IJN green?

I used Humbrol Matt 116 Green, not sure how accurate it is? :shrug:

More progress soon and hopefully that will be this one done

Thanks for looking

Tim.
