The build has started. 5 years ago I found a derelict piece of photo etch on the floor of Moveleo's Model Force meeting. I found a kit that lacks this PE and will try to enhance it.

I removed a lot of the black stripes and replaced them with Tamiya black. This gave better results on the vortex generators and corrected the offset.

Nice job with the NMF. Alcad? The black stripes defonately look better painted. Aluminum foil for paint masks?

Thanks, Gordon. I've seen other people presuming this paint is Alclad, but it's just a generic brand of household spray can, named Sencys. It happens to deliver a very shiny finish. The decals of the kit have a tendency to rip off if you use a lot of taping during masking, hence the alufoil. I didn't want any overspray, it would be conspicuous on the black and yellow.

The Sabre Dog is already finished! Panellines are washed with Vallejo dark brown, this can be scratched off when dry. The decals would peel easily even when sealed.
