Tristar Storch update

This is where I am so far, the model is masked  ready for the last camo colour;

Once this is on the model will get a coat of Tamiya X-22 Clear for the decals. I'm hoping Tristar have decent decals otherwise it will get a repaint :o)

Another save from the Shelf of Doom; Trumpeter 1/35 KV2

This is a kit I started about 5 years ago then got rapidly bored with, mainly after a bad reaction with the original black primer I used to use. I sanded it back then re-primed with Games Workshop Chaos Black but soon after it was put into the box and quietly forgotten...until this week.

Makes a change from German WW2 armour I s'pose :o)

Tristar Storch update

Well the build is finished but after spraying some RLM 02 Grau onto the canopy it highlighted the gaps between the canopy and the wings so to avoid sanding I used Milliput instead, smoothed over with a wet brush then a cotton wool-bud. When it's dry I can get on with painting it. YAY!
I'm quite pleased with the way it has turned out. To be honest I did expect some hassle with the canopy as it is a complicated shape but Tristar have done a pretty good job.
