Daniel Klink Hi Erik, yes it is the Valom first Release, as often the surfce details are very well done, but the fit generally and especially the wing section will be a challenge. Welcome Mate

Daniel Klink That engine will never fit iwithout intense thinning and even than it will be too big in diameter. Damn it is reallywell done in detail by Valom but too big.
Apropos Big.. The Bombay was a Big Bird too

Alec K Cool and unusual aircraft, I love it! I have a few Valom kits in my stash, so interested how this goes together.
Daniel Klink Ah you mean the transistions were not that smooth and soft but rather sharp and the colors stronger

Łukasz Gliński That's my point exactly Colours are ok, I meant only borders.

Daniel Klink I guess you are right Lukasz... wrong Interpretation by me Thanky for the hint.
Will consider it for my next RAF project

Andy Ball I've seen pictures whereby the demarcations between Dk.Earth and Dk.Green appear 'blurry'. I assumed that sometimes on re-touches the paint shop may not have applied a masking, unlike when they left the factory?

Daniel Klink Hi Andy, thank you! That is the thing . this rotten workhorse has been sprayed over without masking
So i declare this as completed.
First thought of mask and carefully do the colorwork again, but masking of the canopy etc. again??
No .. I just have to do better research next time...
Thank you all for watching and your interest..
Now i have ay Bombay in my shelf

Olivier Daniel you could try to do something to the paint with a brush like in the old days. No need for masking then...
