I managed to destroy another paint job. So fed up with this. Well so much for the Rolls. :angry:

Why not, I was just going to turf it anyways. Not a show model but it will fill a shelf. Weathering etc to occur now.

Slow but sure. Need a dullcoat before I weather. Not going to go whole hog on it though as it will only be seen from afar.

Kind of cringeworthy I think.

Looks better than not finished in the box. Have some fun with it, like you said, nuffin' to lose. :rockon

If you would gloss coat the whole thing and add some dark washes to the recesses, it would make those details pop. I think you're harder on yourself than you should be, it is better than a lot of the work I've seen at shows.

Weathering etc still to come. Takes a bit to get down in the basement and today the knee isnt happy. More to come. Just noticed I missed a decal on the aft end so better go do that.

I had to have my good knee scoped about three weeks ago, so that's slowed me down a bit, but it sure feels better.

If you're going to use washes on the panel lines, leave it glossy so the wash will flow into the lines instead of soaking into the flat.

James, I swear I cannot see what you see! I think this is far from cringe worthy and I'm one who makes cringe worthy models! This is an exceptional model already. Once you weather it this will really pop.

You're doing far better on this model than I would so buck up man!
