You are right! It worked fine for me, thanks

Ok, done. I hope this is as the wiring should be. I've not glued it yet.

Hi.
At first I said to myself "the wiring's wrong" well in fact what had me thinking that is that it is probably oversized.
The scheme is right (with one small wire on the right side going from the light to the horn) but the wire's too big which gives this feeling specially on the left side. The wire's bigger than the noptek base if you see what I mean.
You might want to pay a visit to J Trowbridge's site and compare. The wires are a bit smaller.First pic, second row, among others.

Coming along nicely, Stan. You could use annealed steel wire in a very fine gauge (32-34) to represent the wiring. . .

Ok, I found some wire with slightly smaller diameter. I glued it in, no going back now!




All airbrushed it with Xtracrylix 'Panzer Grey' XA1800. (It looks much darker than what you can see in the pictures, that's why I took the picture with black next to it)



This is what I'll be using next:



If I'm correct, I should use the filter first then the oils. After, I will gloss it for decals.
I had a real struggle with the filter last time. It ended up sort of 'shiny and patchy' (I can't remember whether it was mat, semi or gloss finish I used the filter on) and I ended up airbrushing over it and I didn't use the filter at all after all.
Any help with the next steps would be appreciated

Stan

I applied the filter.
Firstly I tested it on a piece of scrap plastic.
I applied the filter and left it for 24 hours. Then I brushed on a bit more filter, in the middle. See the picture below. I was hoping that where I brushed on more filter, the shade would be a bit darker. However, it didn't quite work that way. There is a tidemark:



I brushed on more filter and all was fine, see below.
I'm thinking how to do filters and avoid the tidemarks when I do two or more tone camo and I need to apply different filters. I guess I'd have to seal it with a flat varnish.



Anyway, I only applied the filter once, so no problem here:





This has been sealed with flat varnish prior to applying oils.
I used lamp black, faded navy blue and faded grey:





I think that next time I wouldn't use the blue, I'd be tempted to use the lamp black, faded grey and a mixture of these two.

Looks good Stan, maybe a little dust power would tone it down?

Regards, Paul

Yes, will be applying pigments at some point to tone it down .

Not quite sure what I'm going to do next.
I can put a flat coat on, apply pigments and mud and that could be it.
Or perhaps to chip? I've been looking at this build and I like the chipping, not sure whether to do it or not.
Let me know what you think.

So far, I put Klear on, applied the wash and sealed it with Klear.

Stan
