  1. Yay, the nacells are pretty much done! First blue lines across... Then brown lines along... Then some tamyia make up... Finally a dusting in gold and pale exhaust and then sealed with a gloss coat and unmasked. There... Either I start repairing the paint spill or I go for the exhaust cans....we shall see 😄 Chees!
  2. Time to finish the undersides of the engine nacelles....at least 😛 Tho time consuming it´s been fun playing around...did a few do-do´s but it´s a learning curve 😄 Done with the v Next some blue and brown lines...this time I did not mask. Some Tamyia make up... Then a thin coat of gold and sealing coat of future....unmasked and done. This side turned a bit nasty when I tried sealing with too wet a coat of future 😛 I´ll leave it to the learning curve. Next it is the upper side...whew. Cheers!
  3. Nope, the knees are still swollen and I walk with a stick....not that much pain anymore tho. Take nice pics!
  4. Thanx Matt and Gabor 😄 I actually managed to walk without angushing pain with a stick today so I guess the cortisone is starting to kick in 😄
  5. Home on sick leave...my left knee konked out on me, an athritis flash they told me so I got a couple of walking sticks and shot of cortison in my knee. Sooo....I sat down with the flanker today 😄 I used those wonderful New Ware masks for the engine nacells. Then I masked off the end and shot first Alclad steel, then a thin dusting of copper and then pale exhaust on top of that..I´m happy with it. Next for some serious masking. I decided to try out Yufeis trick with a brush pen to recreate weldlines. I did not however find Sakura pens at the store I was but well this cheaper ones...I bought three for the price of ONE sakura pen...let´s see how that works out. I´m totally happy with that. Now I´ve done one side....3 to go plus the uppersides....this masking is killing me! 😛 Cheers!
  6. Yes. Shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is 'Roger the Shrubber'. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.
  7. Thanx crackerjazz 😄 yeah, no worries I'll fix that in no time....just annoying.
  8. Update time.... lots of paint 😛 Putting on bettering paint spots and bare metal and more spots. A little bit of unmasking and dry fitting. Masked the intakes....should realy have done this before assembly. Painted the intake in ndark aluminium and the intake lip in white aluminium on top of honey primer for a bit of shine. Added some aluminium pigments with a brush to get some subtle bare metal sheen. Then I masked the nacelles. While laying down gloss black I slipped and got a big spot on the model luckily in is painted with acrylics so I could wipe off most of the spill but I need to do some betterig here later. OK, Alclad gloss black. incredebly thin paint but it b rings a highly glossy surface...I´vce used the same bottle for more than ten years now still works like a charm. Next a thin coat of Airframe Aluminium just to bring out the high shine. And I finished todays session with painting the nacelles in a thin coat of White aluminium, I still get the Airframe aluminium shine tho I toned it down a bit. I now have my blank canvas for engine weathering. Cheers!
