Hi all

20200605_221814 by Robomog, on Flickr


As you can see above I've managed to tidy up the stripe, it's not perfect, but acceptable to all, apart from the perfectionist head who is currently sulking in the corner of the work room comforting himself with a glass of Tamiya thinners. Also got the anti glare strip done so its now ready for decals followed by the final fine detail painting and canopy.

Thanks  for looking......

Hi All

Well, after some serious problems in the build i'm glad to say this one is complete.

When I showed it to Mrs Lady Mog she said "Wow that looks like one of the models in a travel agents window" is that a compliment or what!

Apologies in advance for the backgrounds, this kit was too wide for my light box so i had to improvise with cutting mats and felt backgrounds.

Anyways i will let you make your own appraisal, here's the pics

The paint and decals came out great! The props look good, too.
