Today's work.
Posted ImageAfter all the wait and steps for the engines, the Cockpit flight deck was fairly quick to assemble.
Posted ImageThe cockpit area from the front. notice the gun actuator, the golden button on the joystick.
Posted ImageSteps to clean  and care for the brushes. 1. soak in Vallejo Brush Restorer, Dry brush, reuse.
Posted ImageDrying the brushes. They are ready to reuse. of course, I always clean them with water, to remove most of the paint first.  Those little metal dishes you see in some of these pix in this thread are really cool in this usage with  Acrylic paint.  This paint dries to a soft vinyl covering, that peels right off of that metal dish like it was never there!  cool, huh?

The next section, the fuselage behind the cockpit is now together  with some of the bulkheads in place.  more has to be 'stuffed' in, including the Schräge Musik oblique angle forward firing twin cannons, and a couple more bulkheads.
Posted ImageIt is sitting upside down at this point. waiting for Black metalic paint to arrive to paint the cannons. One of the colors I missed when ordering the paints, I believe these guys at Zoukei-Mura more than the people who have made other models I've made because I've found the color editors there didn't always do their work too well! Zoukei-Mura  folks actually study actual Aircraft from the original makers. and take a LOT of pics!  After the Schräge Musik comed the fuselage bottom.

It looks like the color of the tanks is off by 3 shades. I say it again, you really need to work on your attention to detail buddy!

That is the paint, and the color specified in the instruction sheet, Mr.J.D. So you'll have to take it up with Zoukei-Mura! lol

The paint came in today, Metallic Black, and heretofor I've been told metallic GREY was the color used for German guns in aircraft.  Not surprised anymore by finding out other companies had NOT done their due diligence with accurate color findings...More pics tomorrow...

You just need to give up this ridiculous hobby. I don’t think you’ll ever be any good at it. Your lack of ability and attention to detail is very apparent.

I’m going to get back to my SnapTite Space Shuttle now.

LMAO!  I've made 'snap tite' models, but long after the glue and paint mode started.  it was cheap, price wise, and the type caught my eye.  It was about HO slot car size...It was a Chevy Corvette from the early '70s....tried to use it with my HO Aurora Thunderjet chassis, but it wasn't a fit.  it was a dark tan color...Thanks for the memories...Matter of fact, I have a model  of one of the space shuttles..Columbia, I think...lol
