I think the lacquer vs enamel issue has been my problem a few times. Iíve used hardware store spray cans for basic colors like black, white or silver and always tried to make sure I bought enamel. But, I believe you are right when you say the contents may not described correctly. Iím going to stick with model paints from now on. It will be just a matter of separating acrylics from the enamels. That will a lot easier.
I canít imagine the aircraft being able to fly with that monster hanging underneath.  :o :o

No no! It needs more engines and a rudder on the wing!

That dates you Fred.  ;D ;)

Not really.  I was born in '67, way after the Goons era.  I did however discover re-runs on radio when I was a teenager and have been hooked ever since.

Needle nardle noo.

According to me, your model is finished, in a wonderful asymmetric layout! :wub: ;D ;)
Can I ask what a 'Vulcan AEW radome' actually is please?

It's a big going to slow down the Vulcan thingy.   :-X

I just received my first kits and bits from SpotOn Designs.  Thanks to Joe and Karen.

The Vulcan AEW dome is massive. A 1/72 drawing is provided to help with placement and painting.

OK, back with the Mekava conversion. Now, the front lower plate has been changed slightly by pushing the angle up a tad, and cutting the top plate off and pushing it in, over the forward wheel assembly.
Now I'm ready for the wheels.
I've had a few on model cars.
Always due to putting lacquer over enamel that hadn't completely gassed out.
It's soul destroying when you've spent hours working on a fancy masked and faded custom paint job only to make a mistake like that.  Sometimes it was a brain fart but others I blame on paint manufacturers not clearly stating what their product is.

Worst was a Monogram Hurst Hairy Olds drag car.  Gold and black enamel paint job.  Fully decaled and then for some reason I hit it with Tamiya TS clear.
Instant crackle and peel from the black paint so it went straight in to the stripping tank in a fit of anger.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to get replacement decals to have another go.
