thanks, I am stuck now due to airbrush problems.... I will probably need a new one, and i will need to wait a bit for that :(

looks nice so far... to bad about the AB. With Aires the cockpit is ok dimensionally, but the thickness of the plastic is too thick then...

Very nice.

yes, it took a lot of sanding to get the aires cockpit in place. and I bit more probably would have helped too. fuselage without it fitted real nice

well, it is finally finished. i have learnt a few things about Alclad, clear coating, and specially about weathering, some not in the best way, but usually the hard way is the most permanent.... washes affected some of the decals, because the layer of alclad aqua gloss was obviously too thin. I will give a try with Future next time ;)
there is another album with just pictures of the finished model.

thanks James. yes, that was nto easy. i cut the big decal in several pieces, to make it easier. but getting them to match was also tricky.
the decal is really thin, which is great because it looks better once done. but the problem is that if you handle it too much, it can break too
in fact, some days after i finished, a tiny bit of it dissapeared. just on white square and a blue one. i had to repair the damage with with paint. it is not perfect, but it will have to do.

Nicely done!! I some how missed this build. I have intensions of building the exact same kit and decals, but after 3yrs it still sits waiting.

Lode Schildermans
Looks sharp and shiny, Spanjaard. Thanks for guiding me through your building process

thansk Tim and Lode, honoured that you both like it!
@Tim, Tamiya kit fits like a globe, and those decals are simply fantastic. most complicated part was to fit the aires cockpit. but the details are worth the effort. pity i did not sanded it a bit more to get proper fit

Daniel Klink

Spanjaard it is still a very respectable build. We are our own worst critics! We all need to learn the patience that Lode has!
