Thanks Steve, I've been away down south in Singapore last weekend and have not done any bench time or been on the net. This is another one of those old builds that is being shown again. The engines would mostly be covered so strong contrast highlights helped bring out the detail when peering though the cowling.
Continuing the blog on the Stirling. I masked the many windows on the fuselage with white glue using a coctail stick for application. I let the glue flow slowly into the edges.
I forgot to show how I scribed panel lines with the help of a strip of dymo tape as a guide. Then dimples from the injection molding was filled with Tamiya putty after carefully masking the area with cello tape. This helps prevent detail from being sanded of whn sanding the putty.
Any raised plasting from the scribing or raised panel lines were sanded down. The many hundred revits were toned down by wet sanding as well.
Any bits that didn't look right was tackled like the flaps which at the wing was hinged and squared off so you can see right through...I covered that with a strip of plastic and flushed it with the wing. The same was done to the tail flaps.
