Hey Nige 

 I've never had a problem with it. It seems to go down nice and smooth and drys fairly quick. I use all Vallejo paint, thinners and cleaners only. Hope this helps.

Thanks Mark, it's really tedious work about 5 hours of painting taking my time. I still have to do the instrument panel decals then final assembly of the pit. :hsmack::construction:;)

Ok here are some update photos. I still need to do touch ups and add details.

The exhausts are galvanicly grown metal I belive they are from a company called REXx. They are the same process as the old Moskit stuff. I found them on scalemates. They are an exact match to the Tamiya parts. They also make them for alot of other planes.
