Been doing a little research and seems like most 262s were taped up as above at the factory then had their paint jobs done over the putty/tape lines. Read somewhere best way to replicate the effect is to either sand raised lines or fill in recessed ones then use a brush to apply some paint to simulate the above effect then paint over with the RLM colors.

Thanks again stik for saving me from doing a hair pulling task.

Those guns are shaping up, great job!

Frees & Mark (Duke), your selections have been added to the roster. I'm looking forward to them!

CB, excellent work on the heaters! Right down to the angle across the leading edge parallel to the ground.

 

PJ, yes sanding off the panel lines and then painting a thin line of primer for underneath the warpaint woukd probably give the most realistic look to achieve the proper results.

Starting on my Ju 87. After taking a 3 week break from modelling where I just golfed and binged watch Orphan Black, I am ready to be "made". Started last night by gluing some stuff together and "scratching" some rudder pedals. (The cockpit needed "something") Tonight I will lay down some primer and hopefully get to painting the "pit" tomorrow...

OK, so I started my P-47 on the 10th.  I'll post pictures once I've figured out a hosting site.

I build 1/48 scale WW2 fighters.

Have fun.

Started on the F-117 last night.  Not a whole lot of progress to report.  Just some work on the cockpit.

Keyda, you're off to a good start. I don't think that I've seen too many of the Monogram 117's built. 

One thing, the Mafia GB badges are only supposed to be displayed after being earned for the completion of the two builds within six months. Part of our "being made" status for all of the previous Monogram Mafia GBs.

Thank you. And they are the kit wheels. A little flash but not to bad for a 50 year old mold.

Oops, lol.  I was trying to fix my signature after the whole photobucket fiasco, and didn't realize I put that one in there!  Took it out for now.

Good job on your builds guys. I finally started on mine today. I decided to make the 262 NMF and putty lines  and abandoned as part of a small dio a la Bish. More on that later.

Got things glued up and clamped.

got the tiny pit together which has sparse details but the canopy will be closed in the dio so little will be seen any way.

Clamps are off and seams partially sanded and polished. Still need to run some PPP to putty up the panel lines I scribed earlier.

That's all for now......

All major airframe components are attached. AMS has set in however and I have started rescribing lost detail around the wing roots. I told myself I was not going to do this... Oh well. Also adding some wingtip lights.

Nice work everyone! 

I was able to work on the F-117 a little bit today.  Got the wings together, and in place.  Letting everything dry, and if I get a chance I'll glue the fuselage halves together tomorrow.

B_one, the Tomcat is really shaping up nicely! Are you doing sub assemblies complete with markings like the tail fin?

Keyda, now your build looks like a 117! That black arrowhead shape.

Hi CB. I recently completed a Hasegawa cat as a comission seen in this thread:

http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/2/t/175809.aspx?page=1

It's not letting me post it as a direct link for some reason.

At the moment but I have another 10 or so cats on deck. I have done at least 9 cats both in 1/72 and 1/48, Revell, Hasegawa, Fujimi and Hobby Boss as comissions.

 

Hope you do jump in with a kitty!
