Hey Fletcher, welcome back!!!!!

That's quite a bit of work posted...good stuff and thanks. Nifty little trick for the texture on the seat cushions!

Is that Mr. Surfacer that you're using? ...and...are you spraying or brushing it? Just mostly curious, I've not used it as an overall "element" as you seem to be, I remember you treated certain areas of your Pz38 with good results.

As for your painting quandry, , I'd probably go for painting along the way as I go. I'm more comfortable getting it done when I can see it and have room to work. You can always go back and touch-up something if you need to.

Ok, enough of me, you get back to work.

Rick

Thanks rick!

Yep, that's Mr. Surfacer 500. I was using a "boars bristle brush" (really, stiff, course, cheap kind, not plastic hair though) to stipple it on. In this case, I used it mainly to check that the pin marks were filled completely. When it is applied in a thin coat, it doesn't really make a difference texture wise, so I use it to check for surface flaws. It's nice because unlike paint, it doesn't gob up and show after the airbrushed coat goes on. When i use if for texture, I apply several coats.

Thanks for the suggestion with the paint order.

Fletch

Nice work on th seat cushion. Good tip with the thread.

And I may be wrong but shouldn't the wire along the hull side be protected the molded on tube?

Don't forget you need to connect the radio wires to the transformers as well.

Keep up the good work

Thanks laz2.

Do you mean the wires should be inside the tube? I thought so too untill I saw this pic:



(from Nuts & Bolts Vol. 18)

I didn't forget about the transformers, I just haven't done that yet

Looking good Fletch

I would go for painting the interior base coat now while you still have room to get beneath them things on da flo.

Nice work. I especially like your fabric texture technique.
