fantastic !!!!!! is super glue the one you are using? for the metal part?and the second song do you know the title? thanks

 

I use superglue or white glue depending on how much time I think will be needed to adjust the piece or how strong the bond needs to be. The song is "Don't look" from Silent partner.

Excellent video.  Thank you and looking forward to the next ones.  After looking at the video it appeared that you didn't use a primer before painting, was wondering if you normally did that and the reason why.  I was under the impression that you should always use a primer.

 

Thank you

Thanks CBREEZE!  I do use primer (Mr.Surfacer 1500) but for the surfaces where the paint will have to cope with handling or other mechanical influence.  For the interior, the paints I use (Mr.Color acrylics), usually behave well on just washed plastic.  Also I came to the conclusion that the nitro-cellulose based range of Mr.Color is "hot" enough to bond well to plastic.

Hello everyone. 
Episode 4 is ready and you can watch it on the link: 
 


Episode 4 of the video build series will take you trough the various steps of masking and painting the scale model. The FAA scheme plus the invasion stripes and the red nose add up to a very colorful airplane. To get even better results several layers of effects will be added in the painting stage to aid the subsequent weathering. 

Enjoy!
