Ah, the hood. Revell don't exactly make it easy do they?




The decal sheet black stripes at top left in the picture shows what we are talking about. Revell would have you apply the stripes with the outer pinstripe to the hood and then fill the centre with black paint. Possibly easier than a one piece decal, but the chosen method gives problems of its own.

The decals are very thin and get right down onto the paint surface, looking good. My way of filling in the centre part was to use some really old Humbrol Enamel Gloss Black. The tin probably came from the fifties. I brush painted it on and it flowed out pretty much perfectly. It's really good paint.




I then very carefully flatted off the finish with micro polishing pads, down to around 3000 grit. That left a soft sheen. I then buffed that finish with a bit of Mothers car wax until it looked right.




I very nearly left it high gloss, it looked good like that. I went for a more stock look in the end. 


I hope that helps,



Thank you sir as this helps a lot!!!!
