Not sure about Foley washers Pete, but I'm pleased with the Flory washes.
The only thing I'm not sure about is whether to varnish again before going on with some enamel streaking. I'm assuming that enamel or low odour thinner wont disturb the clay based wash, but i'm not 100% sure??
Very nice, you've done a great job bringing a simple scheme to life. The flory washes are very good. Whilst I know they are water based, I think any liquid will probably get them moving again. Maybe it's time to experiment, somewhere out of sight.
A really interesting blog. That wing roots shading was very clever and worked well. Decals look to have gone on well and the wash is something I've heard of but not seen used. You have got a great result from it.
Looking really fine.
Yep, I'm particularly concious of the spike on the nose, I just know I'm going to break it off.
Had a frustrating afternoon trying to find this bit.
It's marked a E194, but that part is actually a completely different bit that goes on the top. I spent an hour looking over the sprues and instructions and couldn't find it. The closest bit was this.
This is the right shape at the back, but completely open at the front. It looks like it wants another bit glued to it, but there's nothing on the sprues which corresponds. I'm therefore in the process of gluing a bit of runner to it which I will shape as best I can.
I see. If there are no blade aerials on the sprues and you don’t have the inclination to scratch build one or something in your spares box I would leave it off. It’s on the underside so not that glaring an omission.
