HI Bud,
Can I ask,how did you paint the Honda writing etc? Silver pen?
Thanks
Terry


I just freehanded over the molded in detail with a #0 brush and some Tamiya X-11 chrome silver paint.


At this time the paint I shot about 3 weeks ago to repair the area that went wonky is still stable appearing. I'll give it a little longer before I attempt the (hopefully) final repaint.

It's looking good, even with all the issues you had with the paint.  Sometimes setting things aside for awhile and coming back to them later, gives you a fresh perspective on how to tackle those stubborn  issues.

Thanks! While that is true, in this case it's been a waiting game due to the paint doing odd and ugly things weeks and months after it supposedly had dried and cured. Once it is stable I'll resume the final paint work and button it up. Its been sitting like this in my showcase for about 3 years.

The exterior body is all Tamiya color. I'll probably finish it off with a urethane clear instead of TS-13 though.

This is my cockpit so far.I made the chrome ring on the right from fuse wire rather than trying to paint it?
