Thanks Jens, the un-thinkable happened the other night after I put the Alclad II Airframe Aluminium on, I had a piece of dowel stuck in the rear end to hold the plane while I was painting her. After this colour was on I then decided to go buzzing the modelling desk and after a couple of times she took a nose dive and fell straight to the floor.
Now I have pulled out the nose cone and wiped it over with Isopropyl Alcohol so it's back to bare plastic. I can re-paint this part and I have re-glued the forward fuselage to the cockpit that had cracked on impact.
Now a quick sanding job, then on with more metal shades, pics soon.
