Took a deep breath and airbrushed the coachline, did it in a few thin coats as I didn't want any paint bleeding under the masking tape, not perfect, but I'm happy with the results, now I know it works I can carry on and do all the rest now ....

Your masking seemed to do the trick. Very nice work.

Getting there slowly with the body, only one rear wing to do now and the body and chassis can be mounted together, but then I spotted the woodgrain underneath, so it had to be masked off and airbrushed Tamiya Desert sand, it will be dry brushed using Tamiya bronze and a coat of clear orange on top, it's a shame it won't be seen once the model is finished ....

Jolly good, as Skip said, is right! Those stripes came out beautifully! The wood looks like it'll shape up nicely, too.

It's guys like you that make me want to hang it all up sometimes...then I say "I can do that, too. Or at least try."

I used to think that way some years ago, I started reading some of the U.S modelling magazines, and went to a few model shows, I knew I had to up my game, and tried doing more detail work, BMF, flocking, etc, seems like you never finish learning in this game ....

Before finishing off for the night, I got the dry brushing done on the wood, I used Tamiya bronze for it,

That wood looks great. Does the bronze leave any metallic finish at all? That would be my one reservation about trying it with that color. That aside, Geoff, it really looks nice.

No it doesn't, see for yourself Charlie, after watching a couple episodes of Mash (One of my favorite t.v programmes) I though I would get the clear orange on, it might need a second coat, I'll make my mind up in the morning when it has all dried up

Looks like wood to me !! I'm going to have to get a set of artists pencils for the toolbox, as I've seen other demo's using pencils for interior detail ...

Geoff- OUTSTANDING! That looks incerdible.

Bryan- that's very nice, too. That looks more like white oak than white oak. May I ask what brand of artist's pencils you use? Do you shade the grain or color it in directly with the point?

Finally got the coachlines on the body finishes, now the chassis can be fixed to the body, next to be done if the bonnet, and I've started to mask that up for the red coachlines ....

Finally got the body and chassis put together, I used some very slow epoxy, as I knew I would need 3 hands to get it together, but it's all aligned and clamped, I'll take them off in the morning, also got the coachlines on the bonnet and fuel tank, I used a little bit of modellers licence on the fuel tank, as photo's I have seen had the coachlines on the end, but I have also got photo's like the way I have done things ....
