No worries Shawn, thanks for you help/advice!

Until now I did not have this blistering problem with Tamiya clear and my humbrol enamels.

I might buy a timer/clock for my workbench. I just want to model and get bored waiting

(don’t want to have two build going on when waiting for the paint to dry).

Before the p-40 and Ju-52 my tank when well! A church lady has another kit for me too!

i might do this airplane to reset....

The "new" decals came in the post today, Thanks Darryl.

I am tired from wrenching bicycles at Two Wheel View today but had fun.

I need to apply the decals for the p-40, maybe tomorrow....

Luckily the oven cleaner loosened the glue that held the wings onto the fuselage as I original forgot the cockpit and pilot.

I plan to finish painting it and installing to the wing and then reassemble the wings and fuselage.

I just painted the wings and underside of the fuselage as the paint is drying for the cockpit and pilot.

I plan to clean up the pilot's helmet and face.

Image

I need to wait for paint to dry to put on the IP decal.

Image

Image

I glued the cockpit to the wing to the groves in the wings.

The oven cleaner certainly cleaned that up, Michael and with the added bonus that the forgotten cockpit and pilot can go in. A win win situation if you ask me :grin: I hope the re-painting is successful for you.

I put on the IP decal and glue the wings onto the fuselage.

Image

I cannot get a good close up picture of the pilot with my camera

Image

I clean up the wheel wells with a q-tip and thinner, the oven cleaner make it easier to clean.

The one coat of grey has dried ok

I just masked and painted the topside of the plane brown at 11:45 pm. I will take pictures in twelve hours when the paint is drier. Then add another coat.

I thinned down the paint and used my IKEA milk/paint mixer, it makes it much easier to have well mixed paint and quickly too.

First coat has dried:

Just applied a thinned down Humbrol 116 brown coat of paint:

I looked for my humbrol gloss and matt clear and was not able to find the gloss in the mess which is my modelling table.

I might use Klear or search more for the humbrol gloss...
