Ok finally got a little bit done on it today. Got the exhaust/engine cooling flap vent area painted along with my first mottling attempt in absolutely ages. Not great but passable.

Hi Chris. I may have to as i've just snapped the decal for it. Eaglecals are great but boy are they thin and fragile. So i might have to do some masking (again) and spray the spiral. Just noticed i also missed the yellow engine cowls. Masking time !

Ok bar a couple of small decals to put on the fuselage i am ready to start the exhaust staining, weathering and connecting the aerial & armour wires. Had a few mares with the snake decal. It tore a couple of times so i'm going to try and hide the tears with some paint chips and staining. Hopefully should have this wurger complete by next weekend.... SWMBO permitting.

Ok i've finished the decals. Just need to seal them in with future and paint the ladder (i forgot). Then it's just to add the weathering and then the canopy, gear doors and few its that have fallen/snapped off and it's complete.

Made ton of mistakes along the way but i'll know that for the next time i build this kit (i have another four in the stash).

Tamiya X-19 Smoke added for exhaust and gun staining. Will add some burnt umber to the exhaust later as that is what the German stains were like. But less is more and all that.

Right last one for tonight. Added some brown to the smoke now. I was going to add burnt umber pastel but i seem to have lost it (or my kids have nicked it), so i was left with my only other option of using a dark rust weathering dust to try and re-create the brown in the staining the Germans had. I think it's done ok. Sealed it all in with Hannants flat varnish. Which might i add is an excellent acrylic varnish.

So onto the canopy wires. Eye balls well and truly minced now. Connected the armour guide wires and the internal aerial wire. Not happy with a few things, but that is down to my (lack of) workmanship and not the models fault. But hopefully you can see it adds something to the canopy behind the pilot. Is it worth the extra effort? You decide.

Home straight at last. Last few bits to do. Fit broken aerial underneath, fit gear doors, glue on main canopy and lastly fit external aerial wire. Should be finished tonight (fingers crossed).

As you can see i've added some slight chipping details around the gun cover latches. Also tried to show how the wires look when fitted to the aircraft. Finally painted the brake hydraulic pipes on the gear legs.
