Hi guys,

 

spoke to Huub at the aviation mega store and he warned me about masking fluid.

I use the very thin Vallejo one. I tested it on a window that i won't be using and it works perfect! smooth and tight demarcation.

Removing mask with a toothpick.

Very nice work Jeroen,

 

Forgive the bloody obvious but how did you apply the fluid? I see a brush so is that dipped or is the fluid "squirted/dropped" on and then the brush settles it into place?

 

Regards

 

The Vallejo masking fluid is really thin but can be applied with a thin brush. It flows just enough the creep into and along the panel lines.

 

@Cor Verbeek: Is the Talens fluid thin or thick?

JP i also use Tallens and is quite fluid! A great liquid mask! I never work with Vallejo liquid mask so I cannot tell you if its similar... but i work with Tallens and i like it! :)

Here's a look at the formation lights on the underside of the fuselage.

HK Models provide 3 fine fitting clear lenses, but I'm taking a slightly different route.

Sprayed the base Alclad chrome. The used AMMO red, green and amber lens clear. Bot too much, so the Alclad shines through. These lenses weren't bright red through and through. And then filled the voids with Micro Klear. 

 

Hope to mate the fuselage with the wings today...
