Now I am become loopy. The masker of Me110 canopies ! Oh that was tedious. I used frisket paper. The frames are too thin to show up under metal foil. The red dots are so I know the mask stayed on the model after it was cut away. The curious thing, The kit has a cutout out for a landing light lens yet, no lens is shown in the instructions and there is no lens in the kit. I have to make something to fit. Hope to have it painted by the weekend !
Well I got down to the painting this weekend. Black underside, masked off and then the RLM top coat which will be the spots. Then I masked off the spots with liquid latex, I was getting ready to spray the final RLM 76 top coat when I noticed I had forgotten a few parts. In the instructions it lists
43a,44a,45a,46a,47a. 46 and 47 are easy to install. The other four parts are a mystery ? I searched the interweb for pictures and none show a blister above the engine nacelle and a whatever it is in front of the cockpit. What could possibly be the purpose of them ? I have decided to leave them off.
Paint and decals. I have to tell you, getting that shark mouth decal to lie down flat was NOT that much fun. I'm sure I turned a funky shade of blue a few times ! Good chance I'll have this one done before the deadline !
