Usually I coat the model with glossy varnish before adding the decals and doing some weathering. Afterwards I add a flat or semi-gloss varnish to seal everything. I plan to do the same on this model, dayglo and all.

how many kits have we seen with that kind of error, Thomas? 😉 they certainly look thick! 🙂

Thomas, Is it possible that you only need to correct with the brass rods two of the three cannons of each wing?

It´s also possible to take some layers of Tamiya tape or an electrical tape. You better get into the curves and small areas then dymo tape.

Pulling this kit from the shelf of shame/doom, I might give it another go.

Robert, Łukasz, guys, I cannot agree with you more. Normally I won't touch Mistercraft (Plastyk), with a ten foot pole. It will bite you at every step.

Oh no ,Thomas -I am aware of the out of the box fit of some Amodel moldings - I was impressed by your WORK to make it look so smooth. And I ordered my An-26 today. So well done, and sorry for the confusion - your work is heartening for these tough but cool kits!

Cannot remember when I last had to fill and sand a model as much as this one, losing panel lines for each session, which I then need to try to rescribe. It is quite annoying, but I am slowly getting there.
