I bet the masking process was a handful right?  

 

Indeed - all the wing fences and flare dispensers protruding from the surface make masking really challenging. I will admit, I had to do several resprays, but luckily, it's easy and quick to do them with lacquers.

Well, the end result is rewarding as I can see form your pics and that gives me courage to start my own build! I will be using acrylics though, since I am working indoors and the smell of laquers wouldn't be the best house perfume for my wife!

Thanks guys!

Applied the decals - Linden Hill + kit stencils. I hope to regain the momentum, as my little kid is in the hospital and I am in no mood for anything at the moment...

Thanks, mate!

 

Some light wash has been applied, several details added and she's now ready for matt clear coating.

Here's the last in progress shot - only a few details to attach and she'll be finished.
