Got the Stuka un wrapped from its masking and ready for decals. I did the camo then masked off for the yellow markings, i am going to use the decals for the yellow V on the wing.

Next up, decals and weathering then a white wash.

I've taking some vacation time and took all week off, sadly not much time at the bench it was used to finish my front porch. What I did get done was masking the canopy and getting it installed. From the looks of it some of the masks that came with it are just a tiny bit small in places but slight over spray should be easy to remove.

Masking a Bf 110 canopy is no small feat!

Bish, that base camo looks really good. I'm looking forward to seeing that Stuka with the whitewash on it.

Clint, almost all the Eduard masks I've used so far have problems with being a little bit too small in some places. They're not a perfect fit, but they still make masking canopies so much easier, especially big ones like on the 110.

I would have had this done now but I screwed up. Instead of applying decal setting solution to the fusalage and right wing cross I applied Testers thin cement Bang Head. Yeah....I was a little miffed. Luckly I caught the mistake quickly. It took me a second to figure out why the solution was melting the decal and paint. Anyway, fighting the urge to just toss the thing into the trash I set it aside, thought about it, scrapped off the fues cross and reapplied the paint. I masked the red stripe with a post-it note and peeled off the black Gruppe mark!
I'm going to Boise this weekend for 2 weeks and I'll see if I Have some extra 1/72 German decals in my decal box when I get there. The kit does'nt come with swastikas so maybe I can also find some of those as well. I really don't want to buy a whole new set.

Bish nice work on the stuka.

Clint that masking is tedious but you make it look easy.

Steve awesome 190 I did the same thing but on the under side of the zero's cowling let it dry some 0000 steel wool and repiant.

 I have been away from the bench for a few weeks. here are my latest pics. next comes clear flat and a light coat of gloss.

Got the 110 primed with Tamiya grey primer. Then preshaded using Tamiya nato black. The underside RLM76 was then sprayed using Lifecolor acrylic paint. The RLM76 was then masked and Tamiya white was sprayed followed by Lifecolor RLM04 yellow. The underside was all masked and RLM75 was sprayed alos using Lifecolor. This is where it sits now, tomorrow I will mask the 75 and spray the 74 then more masking and the molting will be put down. The size of the 110 will be like molting two 109s so not looking foward to it. This was my first time using Lifecolor paints I've had some tip dry that I never get with Tamiya but I'm going to blame that on the high wet temps. I started with thinning 50/50 with its own thinner that still seems to be a bit thick so next time will bump it to 40/60 paint/thinner. The color match is really good with the Lifecolor paint but I've had a chance to play with some Mission Model paint at a friends. It was just the best to use, so my plan is now to use up my few bottels of Lifecolor I got and start replacing them with Mission Model paints. I will still be using my Tamiya for IJN stuff and all my armor builds since I am very happy with my building process there. The only reason I went away from using Tamiya on German aircraft is wanting paint already color matched even tho I custom mix Tamiya for my armor but there is less colors for armor then for aircraft... Maybe I'm just crazy... anyway thanks for sticking with me here lol

My Tamiya A6M5 is done. Painted with Tamiya xf-11 and xf-12. Weathered with masters touch oil paints. The decals are from the kit using Tamiya decal setting solutions.The pilot is also from the kit representing LT(jg) Tetsuzo Iwamoto with 80 victories?

 

Thank you for all your comments and for being in this GB.
