Unbelievable! I had just posted these pics and went to touch up the black on the front and wouldn't you know it - the bloody paint bled underneathy the tape and has ruined the bonnet.  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
So, I will have to strip it right back to bare plastic and start again. Great
I guess it won't be finished this weekend as planned then  :banghead: :angry: :angry:

Ouch, NO fun!  :banghead:

I hope the next effort goes to plan for you.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Sometimes a kit really does seem to be jinxed  :-\

Glad you're not giving in, though. She looks far too good for that! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Yep.  Sometimes.
I think my record for strip/repaint is three times.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

thanks guys. Nah - I won't be throwing int he towel that easily. It's extremely frustrating sure, but that's what ELO's for! :D
It's sitting in a bath of it now as I type. I have to say though - that SMS paint is super strong! The paint on the bonnet just isn't moving or coming off and it's been at ;east 3 hours. The black paint all came off super quick and easy but that SMS stuff just isn't budging. I'm not sure if that's a credit to the paint or not....

So, I'm thinking of a new colour scheme. What do you guys think of Matte black with a blue metallic asymmetric stripe over the top? Or some blue lines highlighting the edges over black?

It might work but I kinda prefer the scheme you were going for, personally.
