Hi All,

 

Finally finished the cookie monster!

Basically a test shot that misses the fabric patches surface details and didn't include decals.

I used Mal's perfect masks for the codes, roundels and No Step indications and also the ProfiModeller stencil decals. These include some typo's and are huge in numbers, but they definitely add some life to the otherwise dull surface of the wooden wonder.

 

I took my time with the weathering part. Using a grey sharp colour pencil for scratches and a silver Prisma pencil for the scratches on aluminium parts, like the cowlings.

 

Overall I'm pleased with the result and love the sleek lines of this machine. 

 

At the time I started this kit little after market was available, so limited to the HGW sutton harnesses and ProfiModeller Pitot tube.

Ah! And almost forgot. I used Airscale decals for the instrument panel.

 

Cheers!

Next!

VERY sweet looking bird, Jeroen!

 

As for those "etched patches", I don't have very much documentation on the Mossie, but what I have doesn't show any difference in surface texture / light reflection around hatches or the like on the wooden surfaces. Not on period photos but I haven't seen it on restoration projects either. Looking at it in that light, I'm seriously considering polishing them out.
