Which seam and what’s your filler of choice. Could be a change of filler might do the trick.

Thanks Peter, I use Vallejo it’s good for infill joints but flat seams can be a fight, I nailed it and primed plus my first attempt at pre shading, Vallejo German grey very thin……..hmmmm looking at it now,  what a bleeding mess….🤪🤞

I had overlooked this build Phil! Looks like it's coming along nicely. Great subject! :)

Appreciated John, really enjoying the build, I’ll definitely build ICM again……..fancy doing a HE 111…….are we allowed to show the crooked cross on pics of the finished model?…….first Luftwaffe I’ve done since coming back to the hobby……

That rule as far as I know only applies to farcebook.  No crazy shit like that here, thank goodness.

No problem with the swastika showing. A HE 111 would be great! :)

Your pre-shading is looking mighty good and right with Gaz and John, no issues with using historically accurate swastika decals on our models.

Keep ‘em comin

Peter

thanks Peter, wish I could spray thinner lines, I’ll have to practice. On holiday next week, trying to clear them before Christmas, so lots of bench time…..

I have learned to not try either detail painting or highly controlled airbrushing after caffeine.  I get palpitations and can see my hands visibly shake.

The pre shading should be sufficient Phil, I found, that it does not count for that much, how thin or equally done the pre shading is (with the exception of WWI wing strut / canvas simulation shading, which should be fine and equal).
If you really want to improve it, you can do it multi tone, selecting different colors, like brown and blue, depending the surface color. this way, you can accentuate panels also, which makes a monochrome paintjob more interesting. It's not much more work, bud does improve the result a lot.

Cheers Rob
