Okay,

Just finished Airbrushing the main hull and haven't removed the tape yet, but I am pretty excited with the results so far. I will post pics hopefully tomorrow.

I have to start over on the main hull. Last night, in my excitment, when I was putting the engines on, one of the supports broke off. I bought a new kit today and am planning on starting on the hull when I get a chance.

I used super glue and plastic cement as well for the wing tip, so I think that I just applied too much pressure when attaching the engine. Oh well, I don't think it will take me that long to get to start over. I have learned a lot over the last couple of weeks working on this project.

I am finally finished with the main hull. I still have to paint it up. I tested the parts and decided to take a couple of pics of my progress. Here is one for scale:

I still have to gloss coat it, apply decals, and then dull coat. I am pretty satisfied so far.

Very nice! Great shade of green, btw.

Thanks! I used Model Master's Acrlic Interior Green 4850 for the under side and Model Master's Acrlic Grauviolett 4785 for the top side. I find that the Grauviolett is not blue/gray enough, but my wife picked out the colors to match the box art for me.

I am placing the decals right now. This is my first time ever doing decals on a model, so I am taking my time.

Next step will be to clear coat the model again and then a dull coat.
