    Finished the 1/48th scale Wyvern and I can tell this aircraft was really a beast. It is big, nearly the size of the skyraider. Anyway here it is.

    Thank you Ray. For now I will be taking a break from fleet air arm and do a bit US Navy, but Alex should not worry cause the Seafire 47 is on top of the list to do (as soon as I get the cockpit)

    Thank you. Regarding the panel line I do not prepaint them as such. What I usually do is apply the base color and then darken it accordingly and spraying along the panel line, and then retouch with the base color. The next stage is spraying the base color which have been diluted in layers until I am satisfied with the effect. Finally in the last stages, usually after apply lots of gloss varnish and decals I use oil paint diluted enough as to run into the panels using a fine brush. I use a dark color, most of the times mixed but almost never used black for panel lines. Lot of fine sanding in between paint layers even the gloss, but still not in top form as had a drop in modelling these past two years.
