Still recovering from the cold but I was able to get a bit of modeling down over the Christmas holiday. Started playing around with some weathering and diorama techniques. I was very impressed with the Vallejo Earth Texture.
Got the upper and lower fuselage glued and in place. There are some fit issues particularly around the engine intakes and behind where the wings will go. There will be some time filling and sanding here. Onto the exhausts. Started with a coat of Vallejo black primer. Followed up with a coat of Vallejo’s Metal Color Jet Exhaust. If you hav’nt tried this yet I would highly recommend it. No thining required and airbrushes on beautifully Next step will be to add some basic weathering, again keeping to the three-foot rule.
