Came in from the farm today and thought i'd get a few little bits done. The two outboard 300L drop tanks and SC500 have been made up and sanded flush. There are a couple of little marks that are still present on the fuel tanks but, if they show up through the paint then i'll let them go down as wear n tear. After all i doubt these fuel tanks in the field were kept in pristine condition. Used a Flory wash on the undercarriage doors. Just need to seal it in with a matt coat.
Also trying to make an electrical harness for the main leg retraction arms. Drilling with 0.3mm drill bits take time and a lot of patience.

Allen like Steve I found this this morning, read from the start. Wow and Wow again. Engine work is tremendous. Like the way you store your wires as well.
I'll get up now !

Thankyou very much Barry, Steve & John. I must get back to doing this build. Been a bit busy gardening and decorating lately. So have been neglecting this.

Been ages since i did anything to this build. So with that in mind i cracked open the paints.

My Vallejo Model air paint was really thick. I suppose i haven't used it for years so this is to be expected. So i thinned down with AK Thinner and it worked a treat. So here as you see i've given it a coat of RLM 76 all over. I used the undercarriage doors for the 'wheels up' option to help mask that wheel bays (saves tape ad blu-tac). I've not painted the nose section and exhaust shield yet as i need to do some proper masking of the engine before i do so. But other then that, it's finally starting to come together.

Hi Alan
Wow! That engine is superb. I remember we had a running joke with Simon T. When he did wheel spokes,wires etc it was suggested that he had trained spiders to do the work. I reckon you must have the Scottish variety :tongue-out3: Fine start to the paintwork.

Cheers guys. Getting there now. Been suffering with my old mental health so this and most other model related things took a back burner.

But hoping to continue with this now. Besides i have to finish this. I have so many more builds planned :smiling3:

Certainly does Tim. Getting there. Taking days one at a time. It's a strange thing really. I want to model but when i sit at the bench, i just sit there and stare for a while. Then i feel overwhelmed and have to get back up. Anxiety and depression are not fun.

But whilst i'm in this sort of mood to actually do something i am going to embrace it.

I sometimes feel like that. So, I'll just remove one of the smaller parts off the sprue and clean it up. That's it, 3 or 4 minutes work, no more.
