Now to finish the Scooter from the Krap kits GB that became a DNF:
Image
mixed some blue colour for the stripe around the cockpit, some red for the intakes, started decalling

then some gloss varnish, to make the brushed-on blue look more even, and to have a surface for decals:

I WILL definitely finish this kit this week, cause in the coming weeks, there will not be lots of time for modelling :-|

I got carried away a bit, when I painted the blue: if I would have done "correctly", the anti-dazzle in front of the windshield would be a sea grey colour now - but I got a bit lazy :grin:
So here are some shots of the finished Skyhawk:

Nicely done; always an elegant little aircraft and it's a mystery to me why I have never built one! I have the Airfix 'not so new-tool' in the stash somewhere too!

Nice one, CP, that turned out very well. I'm another one who has never built a Skyhawk!

Thank you! This is my second Scooter, a long time ago I built MB´s A-4M, which I still have stored somewhere....
The ones with "electronics hump" I probably will not build again, but maybe a Blue Angels one, or one of those colourful from China Lake airbase, with the orange paint on?
