    I used a mix of Burnt Umber and Black Oils everywhere except for the aluminium surfaces where I used a bluish-gray wash.

    Took the day off today to start finishing off the model.  One of the tasks I planned for today was to paint and fit the gun sight only to find out that the kit part was nowhere to be found affraid .  Being a transparent part didn't make looking for it easier so after 15mins of futile searching I decided to scratch build the thing,

    Scratch building was not part of the plan so late in the project but here's the result. The bottom lens is made from Kristal Klear which has not set yet so it shows up as a white dot.  Once it turns clear it should look a lot better.

    Nicely done Wayne, don;t get lost on the minute stuff and get it done. The gunsight you made is good enough, then if you have time in the end go back to it and maybe add some more detail.

    By the way Wayne, don;t forget to flatten those tyres a bit, makes a hell of a difference to a model, remember most of the weight of the plane is on the rear tyres, they have to be weighted down, the nosewheel not so much.

    Brian, the wheels are resin items from airwaves and they are already weighted.  the thing is that since the wheels are not perpendicular to the ground, most of the 'weighting' shows on the inside of the wheel.  Granted though that they might not be flattened enough.

    They are beautiful but too new, dirty them a bit. Pastels or any other means will do.
