George, i agree on the marking, i find myself more look at putting together my own schemes of aircraft i see in books. I have both of the Airfix 72nd 87B kits and i don't plan on useing the kit decals for either of those.

Front page updated.

I like your Stuka George, it's very good. If you hadn't called out the issue you had with the masking residue, I wouldn't have noticed. if you are going to attempt cleaning it up some more, test it first so that you don't upset the Vallejo acrylic accidentally.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the feedback! I am still debating if I am going to do anything or not. If so, my plan is to completely strip the paint off the center canopy and start over. I don’t feel that I can do it that carefully in sections since I treated the canopy originally with future and think that will just make matters more complicated compared to the full strip and start over. There is also the feeling of dread that something else might go wrong so that is where I am right now. I have a new set of canopy masks arriving today so will have to make my mind up soon. 

Thanks!

George

Hi George.

 

I have learned that sometimes the "feeling of impending doom" that something might go wrong must be listened to. If the problem on the model is small and does not detract from the model's good looks I have found to just live with it and walk away.

 

Toe remove a glued on canopy could maybe crack ,then you eed a replacelant :-(

 

Just my own 2c imput.
