    Landing gear was improved by the use of Albion Alloys brass tubing and Plusmodel lead wire Landing gear painted up and weathered. Tomcat after light washes Final look after specific panels were further weathered and certain panel lines over painted.

    And here's a good view of Airfix decals problem - left wing Airfix, right wing Microscale

    Thanks guys! I've hit the builder's block with this build when it came to decals. The only company that did the decals for the scheme I'm building, were Airfix. They have included decals for one of the VF-41 line birds from the JFK's 1997 Med cruise as well as CO's bird of VF-14 Tophatters with really nice tailart. The latter however has two serious problems - one side of the decal sheet is pretty badly off register and Airfix managed to screw the pooch with Modex numbers - the real bird carried 214 while Airfix printed the 201. Anyhow back to VF-41 option. While the decals are surprisingly thin and the tail art decals fit perfectly, almost all other decals are like 15% too big. The "NO STEP" decals, compared to the Microscale sheet I used in the end, looked like 1:48 compared to 1:72. So yeah, in the end, some scheme specific decals were used from Airfix, others were mostly Microscale and some from a Fujimi kit (which had quite bad adhesion). Anyhow all the troubles behind, here she is, ready for the next level of weathering.

    The interior compartments were give a coat of White paint. Afterwards the details were painted and a wash was applied to enhance the shadows. The right hand side was given the same treatment. With all the details painted and wings and pylons attached, it's time to gloss it up and finally start the decalling process!

    Thank you! Last wip of 2018! Did further weathering of the overpainted panels and added grime and dirt on the most often used panels. Added antiglare panel, over-intake walkways and painted the canvas bags and airbrake interior.

    After a coat of AMMO One Shot primer I've put a marbled coat of Lt. Ghost Grey on. Marbling was first done coarser and will be made finer later. Before final painting I added brown marbling on the areas of higher wear and tear. And the final subtle effect. But the painting is not done yet.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, she's ok now already. Luckily she only had fever without much or any pain, but on the other hand, we didn't know what's causing it until visiting the doc; antibiotics made a short work out of it. Steve, thanks for pointing that out - haven't checked all the little details before the painting yet, but I might have missed that little detail if you haven't pointed it out.
