Thank you Wurger, and don't worry, I will keep after it.:thumbright: Thank you Wayne, I need to work more on paint thickness. Lines are showing up under decals. And thank you Igor, I have been watching the YouTube videos of Snafu keeping myself motivated.:lol:
 
Ok Wayne, I am getting into the short rows now as we use to say on the farm.:lol: (I know,......it's about TIME!!!:) ) Here is what has been done with the decals and the dull coat. The white stripe around the cowl would not come loose. I have a coat of clear over it along with a dull coat and I might do what Terry suggested and tape it up and just shoot it. first the green and if that fixes it I'll stop there. I may have to true up the white stripe though but we'll see. So, here's what it looks like at present.

That's really looking the biz Aaron, very nicely done. Take it steady doing the white stripe and you should be fine. Might even be easier to it with a brush, as it only needs 'bringing into line'. Paint out the stripe where it infringes into the red, let this harden fully, then mask lightly, using low tack tape such as Tamiya, and 'straighten' the line with white paint. Once fully dry, clear coat should make it look the same as the surroundings, and it should blend in nicely.
 
Thank you Wayne, I am now workin' on the canopy. I masked it and shot it last night while fixing two computers. Getting ready to Future it and then install the decals and mount it on the aircraft. Here are a couple of shots of the mask job and paint.

Thank you sir.:oops: Hopefully get the Future on main part so I can get the two decals in place tomorrow and maybe by Wed. have this bad boy wrapped up and finished. My weathering needs a LOT more work and practice though.
 
Good stuff Aaron, and don't worry about the weathering, just do it as you feel - it doesn't have to look like a bag of spanners if you don't want it to!
 
Thank you Terry, here's what it looks like now. I worked the white stripe a bit, masked it off and shot the OD green over the white. I am almost willing to leave it as is unless you guys think it needs the white reshot to widen it back out towards the red just a little.
