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 like that colour scheme with the blue round the cockpit.

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?

This evening, there will be another "modelling evening" (Bastelabend in German) in my club, but since it lasts only 3 hours, I don´t want to take my shared-builds with me, cause it would be a waste of time, so, what to do in 3 hours?
Aaah, yes, I could make a "landing light" for a (bit mutilated looking :grin: ) MB Warhawk, and close some seams on her, in that time:
Image

Here´s another reason, why we guys should go to the beauty supply shops more often, cause they even have landing lights there, and AA search lights!
Just go to the next nail design shop, and ask for some! :-D LOL!
(Employees eyes there will look like Flak searchlights if you really ask them that!)
Here´s proof:
Image

I think I might post some pics of tonight´s Bastelabend, if the guys don´t mind?

I don't mind. Neat source of lamp lenses.
