Hi John

Keeping a close eye on how you do the markings before the preliminary painting - following all your work over the years, the end results are astonishing

Keep 'em comin

Thanks Peter. As far as I can tell painting the stripes, etc first is about the easiest approach. Get that all done then the camo and then the decals. :)

John you are a machine.  I have attempted to emulate your work in my own builds as you are a professional to be sure.  The sun comes up, and John knocks another smooth build out of the park.  Watching and learning as always.

As they say "different strokes for different folks" Peter. I recommend this method. :)

Would any of you guys have either of these 1/32 Mask sheets?

Montex 32005

Maketar 32090

I want to use it for the JE-J codes on this build. I'd like to get 'em ASAP as the model is about ready for them. This wasn't to be my original approach but after consideration I think it is the best way to go. Let me know $$$ and I'll send payment via PayPal.

Thanks!!!!!

If you need just the codes, I have them.

The EN315 would have to done after the camo though as some of the numbers are only partials. 

 

Let me know. 

Carl

If you don't mind Carl I'll take the codes JE-J. Just slip 'em in a envelope and mail them. Thank you!!!!!  :):)

How do you get such a gorgeous satin finish on that paint , John...... something I have never been able to do....

It's Xtracolor paint Jeff. Their paints are gloss and lay down nicely. I highly recommend them but they are a bit difficult to get stateside. :)
