Guillaume Blanchet @Gary: I've used Tamiya XF-2. 1st I airbrushed it, then I uesd some Citatadel silver paint for the button. Since I had spill some paint around the button. I did some touch up with my paintbrush reapplying the XF-2. Funny enough Tamiya paints have a différent texture when applied with a paintbrush VS an airbrush. This made de seat pad look worn out, wich I liked.

Gary Kitchen It certainly worked. Was the sit pad part of the kit too or aftermarket?
Guillaume Blanchet I'm getting better with the rivter but it's still a a big chalenge to have nice & clean lines. This time I've experimented with masking tape and long plastic tubes cutted from the sprues to serves as flexible ruler. Masking tape is stable but doesn't provide much guidance & the flexibe tubes are hard to maintain in place. One day...
I did found a verry cool rivets reference illustration on a 3d modeler forum.I have uploaded the picture in the album.
Guillaume Blanchet It was a bit of a struggle to line the wings part with the body. I think the putty will fix it but it will be a challenge. The upper wing is will also need to be shaved to fit with it. Otherwise the location pns won't align.

Guillaume Blanchet Got a lot done this weekend, Quite happy with my preshading on the wings. Still I could have stoped one layer earlier, but I'm still learning.
