Got the matt coat on today after a quick highlight of the control surfaces with a black wash ,then a fine misting of Tamiya XF86 Flat clear . Not much left now , just machine guns , the molins gun , landing lights ,whip aerial and a bit of weathering / exhaust stains then unmask the canopy and nav lights and we’re done .
Well this ones crossed the finish line , the last few bits have been done . I added the exhaust stains on the nacelles ,fitted the carburettor intake grilles , fitted the machine guns and molins gun , a whip aerial from a paintbrush bristle and de masked the canopy and nav lights.
The underwing landing lights were added using some diamante jewels which came off a blouse my daughter in law was throwing out , suitably cut to size and fitted in the holes . The fighter / bomber versions of the mossie have a distinctive central windscreen wiper so that was added from a couple of tiny pieces of black paintbrush bristle. Thanks to Ian for suggesting this GB , heres a few to finish this thread , ill put a ‘completed‘ thread on later with more pics . Thanks for watching cheers tony
