I figured while im waiting on the trans kit id start painting some parts.

I was able to get the textured look of the vavle covers by spraying at about 16 inches away from the parts they were sprayed with Testors Itailian red.

these are the exhaust heat shields sprayed with a light coating of alclad pale burnt metal, i'll spray them once more to get em a lil darker...
Posted Image

And heres the tranny with a lil alclad white aluminum.....

I may be jumping the gun here so these colors may change. I hope you enjoyed..... B)

Hope you get your transkit soon.

P.S. you might want to take a look here : http://modelbrouwers...9/#.UBMhdqPN6So
This guy has done the same build (I think) that you are planning. The language is Dutch, but if you need any help, I'll be glad to do my best to translate for you.

Ok so i'm home now and would like to share some pics of the trans kit with you....

It arrived in this beautiful wooden box just stuffed with all sorts of goodies
Posted Image

Only 200 of these kits were made and each one is numbered in series mine is # 147/200
Posted Image

I laid out the parts from the box on the floor and took this pic, keep in mind there are parts bags in the parts bags that i didnt take out.....
Posted Image

I got my kit for a very special price and Uli (the designer of the kit) even threw in some of his new fittings and hose clamps and such. he even told me if I need more to just let him know.
Posted Image

Just look at all this photo etch....
Posted Image

Well that's enough i have a few more pics but ill just save the rest for later.....I have a meeting tonight so I'll get started tomorrow after work (or maybe I'll burn the midnight oil tonight LOL!) thanks for viewing

Rommell that is one impressive and intimidating transkit . but with your skills you are gonna
blow it way outta the park.
will be keeping an eye on this tho it isn't my normal thing , Something about an F40 .....

Rom... Man this build is gonna be awesome. Looks like you are gonna have tons of fun with this transkit and all of the photo-Etch parts. She is gonna be a beauty. I am going to enjoy seeing this one come together. You are gonna knock it out of the park like the rest of your builds.
