I thought things were starting to come together

The I started the colour work using various acrylics that to be honest were brands Im not used to ( Xtracrylix and Life-colour.)

These being in place of my usual Tamiya self mixed. The airbrush needs resetting for each different type and the whole thing just ran away with me,

the resulting disaster clear to one and all. I was not too impressed with the colours either,but that may just be my eyes take ,of course.

I managed to cut back the offending mottle disaster using a fine (canopy) sanding stick and used a cotton bud filled with "Fairy Powerspray" to clean off the tail.

The weeks good news was,finding a Fujimi "K" so I can put the unused " G -6/14" wheel bulges on before I restart the re-painting.

Im hoping to be able to update this page with a photo later.

KUTA? with a size 12 boot me thinks.

My new decal sheet arrived today, So after quite a bit of retouching and mixing I managed to get the paint job down to where I was happy with it.

The flash does accentuate the different retouchings but in ordinary light it doesnt look too bad.

The assymetric group marking on the stbd side is a weird one that makes the whole scheme look odd. No doubt Ill get used to it when all the other gubbins have been painted and attached

I put Crystal-clear into the head armour frame and the drying time has put me back a little,but getting there.

Does anyone know if the drop tanks used by the Italians still retained the stencil warnings in German or were they re stenciled for the Italian theater?
