I haven't had a whole of time for modeling these past few weeks, but I've still managed to trudge along little by little towards that elusive finish line.
Up next on my list is the main landing gear, which has the scissor links in two separate pcs. Not sure why they this was necessary as the more complex strut itself is one piece. I cleaned up the parts and glued the well door to the strut prior to painting. Unfortunately, I totally forgot to take the before pictures, so here's the strut assemblies already primed with Mig Ammo Flat Black acrylic primer.
And the Brassin wheels with the outer hub dry fitted
As well as the prop
Next was painting them with Mig-047 Satin White, their color for FS37875 thinned 2 to 3 with Tamiya Yellow Cap Lacquer thinner.
the prop tips were painted Mig-048 yellow, the Hub Testors Steel, and the hub cap Mig-228 ANA 608 FS35164 Intermediate Blue
All the decals were given two coats of Tamiya X-22 gloss so that the weathering process can finally start.
Happy Holidays to all of my friends on Aeroscale, and may each of you have a fantastic New Years.
