Just a tiny update on this project as I haven't mentioned it in a short while. Basically I am at one of those very monotonous and time consuming stages, masking the canopy.
Now this very well might be my fault as I am playing this one by ear, I am not sure if I am doing this properly at all. Fingers crossed though. Once I have masked out the complicated nose canopy framework I will start giving the model it's first light coats of Humbrol's spray metallic acrylic.
