Spanjaard cuajete, that beauty deserves an album ;)
nice job Gordon, specially since everybody is speaking so "nicely" about this kit :)
26. July at 23:43:58
Cuajete Thank you Gordon, don't worry. So you save yourself pain, XD
Well done so far ;)

Spanjaard, thanks, but now this project is at a standstill. I keep my hopes in the new KP kit :)

Gordon Sørensen Sprayed straight out of the can. Just used an old cotton facecloth to buff it. Gives a nice metallic look.

Gordon Sørensen Tried to mask for the anti-glare shied, but the tape just pulled up some of the silver paint. Ended up doing it freehand...
26. July at 22:04:00
Dave Flitton watching
26. July at 22:07:36
Clifford Keesler Gordon, try putting the tape on your hand a couple of times, it lessens the tackiness of the tape, and usually won't pull the paint off. I seal my NMF finishes between masking different shades, so the tape does not pull the paint off. The Spit is looking nice.
26. July at 22:11:38
Gordon Sørensen Yes, I should have put a coat of Klear on it first. Or better yet, painted the anti-glare first and masked that off before I sprayed the Aluminum Plate.....
26. July at 23:03:49
Gordon Sørensen Ever have one of those days?
Was going to start the decalling. Well, the Klear and Silver react to each other...
Was going to start with the roundels, but something didn't look right.... Realized the kit came with clipped wingtips and the vesion I want to do has the full wing.... Out with the razor saw...

Gordon Sørensen Finished. Quite happy with how it turned out. It was a little more work to drop the flaps and slats, but definately looks good.
My father flew Sabres with 427 Sqn, based in Zweibrucken, West Germany in the 1950s. Told him I built a model of the Mk.2 and he said " Nice, but I flew the Mk.5 and 6..." Got my next project figured out, I guess...
23. June at 21:14:34
Łukasz Gliński Nice, never too much of Sabres ;)

03. July at 13:47:09
Gordon Sørensen Thank you, all. I have another Sabre to finish as a Mk.2 then will do a Mk.5 and Mk.6..

Gordon Sørensen
Question for anyone who has used ALPS printed decals before.....
I have a set for a Canadair Sabre I am building. The instructions say to coat with Micro-Sol Liquid Decal Maker... and of course I don't have any...
Can something like Klear or Humbrol Clear Varnish be used instead?
10. April at 15:22:39 Share
Alec K Hi Gordon - I am assuming that you are asking about what to coat the printed decals with after they are printed on a clear decal paper, so they can be applied to the model. I have not used Alps printer decals, but did some decals using an HP Inkjet printer. Any gloss coat that will not interact with the print will work. I had best luck with Mr. Hobby Topcoat Gloss, followed by Testors Glosscote (all straight from the can, but I am sure airbrushing a gloss media will work also). I recommend doing some testing on a test print first. Good luck
