I have to admit that looks superb.. Very tempted with one of these now.

(Note to self - add to list and reschedule 10 year build programme)

Paul - earlier on you described how you put on the panel lines. Any chance of a close up so I can see more clearly the end result. Yours is looking really good! I like it.

Edited By Graham R on 02/07/2018 21:24:22

Graham

I will do some close ups on the wing and when I do the Fuz will do some at each stage.

Graham...just for you...shhh don't tell the rest!

My way of drawing a line around the fuz..

20180705_174459.jpg

I usually line where I want to show the panel edges in pencil first. This can be erased with a normal pencil rubber if you get it wrong. Next I draw a black line with a fine marker..

20180707_085825.jpg

Then I use the white ink pen. I use the rule outside edge and bottom edge to keep them the same but it's up to you just keep them the same. I used a simple section of the elevator to show it.

The effect is good on the model as a whole... a picture to expand on it by the cockpit.

And the fuz side almost there …..

It even works well for circular panels..

More later....

Graham... part 2..

On top of the highlighted panel lines goes a very light spray of ochre. (A big thanks to Richard for this tip)

Next will be the exhaust anti glare suppressors … if work lets me have the time! Once they are on and the exhausts painted and suitably weathered then the whole lot will get a very light coat of satin varnish to protect it all. Have fun with the panelling … be brave and go for it!

Thank you Paul for taking time to show us.

Wow Paul! when I first saw the 1st pictures I didn't think much of the effect, The addition of ochre has made an amazing change to the look of the lines. Looks really good Paul.

Two questions Paul, Yesterday I went looking for white fibre pens - no luck. All I found were white paint pens that you shake to get the pen working. the pen had an ali case. (can't remember the make).

What are the little box shaped pieces on the bottom of the cowl? Is that an addition you made?

By the look of it it won't be long before its ready for a maiden.

Have you painted your pilots yet?

Graham when you say box shape pieces do you mean the 'box ' after the radiator on the front cowl just in front of the leg?

Because they're drawn on panel lines of an access hatch.

Sorry Paul, It was the box just in front of the panel lines. Just realised that is part of the molded cowl. Just having a senior moment.embarrassedembarrassed

It's a shame not more build. I find it difficult to believe so few wanted these beauties when they were advertised. The 109 is another case. That one is another missed oportunity and one cracking good model.

These are the pens I used *link*

The pilots are painted if you go back a way in the posts you can see the little fella's. They must have had quite a few jugs of beer as they ended up well legless..!

Managed to get some more spraying done today. Just a few little bits of spraying left to do on the fus including dirtying and panel lines.

Couldn't resist putting it together.

Thats a shame! Perhaps if I use a lot of flap it might just indecision Thank for the link Paul. I received the paint pens yesterday. All I need to get now is the yellow Ochre.

That cammo is so good Graham, that in the 1st picture, if you gaze at the nacelles, part of the left tail disappears.

The whole model looks great, and and very smart, and must be very satisfying reaching this stage.

Thank you Dennis. Your'e right, very satisfying. I think that most people who have made one feel the same. A lot of it is down to Richard, producing such nice models to build.

Just thought I'd share this gem..... last week our new storeman put a large box marked 'No stack on top'....so he put it on the bottom of the pile!

ju88flying 1.jpgju88 flying 4.jpgju88 flying 2.jpgIm not going off topic here chaps , but I am taking a slight wobble off the path . The 110 had an exciting predecessor that proved the concept of the big electric twin . That model was the Ju88 G6 night fighter which can be found elsewhere on this forum thanks to the excellent build thread by Adrian Hayward .

Here are a few pictures taken today on its 100th flight . Sound system still working well and looking every inch the predator . ju---2.jpg
