Well i made a little start on the kit tonight. Just painted a few interior parts (after direction on colour from Ron). Not many bits in this kit so should make some progress tomorrow. But the NMF is going to be the real test on this kit. I'll have to get my seam lines right....EEK!
Small update. Painted the cockpit and glue into the fuselage. Not going for detail as i'm more focused on the painting ahead. Not much to this kit if i'm honest. Some of this kit doesn't fit great and some sanding is needed. But it''s an Academy kit so nothing i'm not prepared for.
Just a couple of bits glued together. Not much of an update but just to let @papa 695 know that i haven't forgotten this GB. I'm concentrating on this rather than that little tankie thing
As mentioned in previous posts the fit isn't great and there is going to be quite a bit of filling/sanding to do.
Just about ready for black primer. Weight in nose is drying. I've sanded most seams but they are still showing. Cannot be bothered to play with them anymore as the fit of this kit isn't great and i'm going to lose a lot of detail if i continue. This is a typical Academy build imho. And i haven't even got to the decals yet. Yikes!
Anyway. Brush painted the exhausts in Vallejo Metal Colour Gunmetal. Looks very nice indeed. Next primer, then a first attempt at NMF with Vallejo Metal Colour paints. I'm going to try and pick out a few panels to break up the NMF colour
Vallejo Metal Colour black primer added. First time i've ever cleaned a model (with IPA) before painting and added a total cover primer. I normally only ever prime areas that will be painted yellow, white or red.
