New airbrush looks like it is working well! You might want to give the aircraft a sand down the side thought, it looks like there is a ridge of paint from that old green you sprayed on.

Crickey! Was not expecting that! Didn't even think you had painted it up! :thumb:

Did you manage to get rid of that seam half way down the fuselage?

Not sure. That might have to be monday. Done some more today. Got the gear painted and assembled. Just trying to get everything else painted and ready to go on the model as soon as its painted. I will probably finish all that sort of stuff tomorrow and then mask it up for monday (although saying that I've got a lab and then cadets). It will definitely be done by next weekend.

Quite a bit of progress this weekend. Basically getting all the mini assemblies completed so that once I've sprayed the bucc I can put them all on.
Here's some photos

Undercarriage

Image

Airbrake assembly

Image

Image

Armament

Image

Image

Seats

Image

Ladders

and finally the bucc masked up

will probably get her sprayed tuesday/wednesday and should hopefully have her finished for next weekend.

Thanks for looking :thumb:

OK decal-ling finished now, done the drop tanks and bombs as well and started on the undercarriage doors.

Bombs

Drop tanks
Image

Undercarriage doors (Weathered)
Image

Image

Undercarriage Bay
Image

Rest of It
Image

Image

This gives an extent of the amount of decals put on, each block of tiny writing is one individual decal. It was like this along both sides, the top and the bottom :O

Thats all for now, next step is to get undercarriage on, after that its a matter of varnishing, weathering, finishing off the cockpit and getting all the bombs and drop tanks on!

C&C most welcome again.

Looking good Monty, but it looks like the tailplane has anhedral, surely the F-86 had dihedral - it may just be the photos.
