The Defiant Ones

Recommended Posts

 It is, but little has happened since the post. It turns out Montex DOES make a canopy mask set for the CA kit so that's on the way. Meanwhile, finished another one out of The Naughty Closet a couple days ago and another one (both stalled for years) spent the week racing to the paint shop so I don't feel bad about sitting on the last Defiant for a few days.

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal

 

 Well, black as Night:

 Blackened 👍

 

 The Montex masks showed up Tuesday and while they weren't the best fitting they got it done. Some had to be trimmed to fit, some had to be replaced and two were missing for the turret. But they're on and it's just painted in the pic with Testors flat black and a splash of Model Master Neutral gray to take the edge off.

It sure looks mean in black. Sometimes Mask sets need a little fiddling to fit properly.  Thanks for the updates!

 Got caught up in some 1:1 projects over the last couple of weeks but, decals are on, final coat applied and ready for final assembly:

 The landing gear for this one looks rather fiddly but I suspect everything else should go into place smoothly. And that Spitfire is about ready for my True North enamel test.
