Well, she's done. Ever had a model that had a cascade of errors?

I finally got the rigging on and it was relatively easily, but not before splattering a few drops of CA glue against the right side of the fuselage. So I had to do a few touch ups again... which resulted in a bit of the masked gold parts to be a little less crisp. Oh well. But then the coup de grace was that I just HAD to add some light panel washing, didn't i?! Not only did it not work well, it wouldn't wash off and then, it started to take the red paint with it.

So, back to the drawing board and ANOTHER coat of red paint on the left wing tip... which didn't really work because the dark shadows still show through. And to make matters worse, an errant bit of masking tape ripped the round decal off the side!

Luckily with a bit of warm water and some persuasion I was able to get the backwards decal bit off the masking tape, piece it together carefully and get it back in position... with only a few cracks. <sigh>

I'm almost scared to give it another dose of Future to seal on the decals. What ELSE could happen?!

Interesting.  Looking forward to the rest.   F27 doesn't get enough model time IMHO.   :thumbsup:

Yeah, I'm leaning that way.
