Only got the landing gear done today, My granddaughter's could not behave themselves so grandpa had to "babysit."
Looking good Clifford. Love the chosen scheme.
Thank you very much Mathieu, and Gerald. Final gloss coat applied, next weathering.
Got the wash on and off today, pin wash done, waiting for it to dry and remove. Then final assembaly.

Count me in 👀
Me too 😁
Got all of the re scribe done today and all parts washed. Tomorrow will start on the pit.
I plan on getting the Black Dog conversion set to build the Air Force version. I have enjoyed the build so much, I bought another one. LOL.
I've got that BD conversion. Looks like a great set. I think it will look awesome in the "Have Glass" scheme. I do want to pick these up for mine too: https://www.hlj.com/1-48-scale-active-halo-descending-jumpsuit-team-5pcs-zplmf-17a
That set looks cool. I will be glad when I can find the BD set in stock somewhere. So far the only place I have been able to find it in stock is at The 48thrs. com.
I got the last of the decals done today, will finish the landing gear tomorrow and take some more pictures.
I've had great experiences with The 48ers.
So have I. I have ordered several things from them, so I will most likely just order it from them. Kitlinx had it for awhile, but I think it's still out of stock.

That's why I like them as well. I don't have a dedicated air-brushing area, so it's just not practical to use enamels inside. The MMP paints lay down and dry unbelievably flat (like an enamel) and currently have a pretty good range of colours as well. Will be making them my first choice once I've used up my Tamiya's, AK's and MiG's etc.
Give them a try Donald, well worth a look
I agree with James. They are rapidly becoming my go to paint as well. I also like the fact they come in 1oz bottles not 1/2 oz, or 10ml or 17ml.
I have purchased some, but I have yet to use it. It was the only RAF desert pink I could find at the time. 😁
Well, I horded MM paints for the last year or so, so I have plenty for now. Once I run out or need a specific color I may give them a go.
What paints do you use now Donald? Enamels or laquers. I do not quite understand the difference between the various types of laquers. I have a bunch of AK real colors but have not used any of them, as I am not sure what to thin them with. Do you use Mf. Leveling thinner?, if so how is it? Would like to try it, if I can ever find any in stock anywhere. Would you use it with AK real colors and Alclad's?

WOW, that's a beautiful duo 👍 Congrats Clifford!
Thank you very much Roland.
Very nice mate, a cool looking pair indeed 👍
Now they are looking very sweet Clifford 🙂
Thank you very much James and Augie, your kind words are most appreciated. I hope my Son's like them as much. I will be starting #3 once I finish the Osprey. It was to much to try and handle 3 at once.
Oh, if they dont like them they need help. 😉 Great job as usual!
That's a nice Duo Clifford!
Thank you very much Donald and Guillaume, your kind words mean a lot.
