The starboard side also looks good. Now all I need to do is mask it up.
The main wheels have received their coat of Gunze Tire Black and have been masked ready for the white.
Nose wheel (right) and one of the two main wheels.
The outrigger wheels provided a bit of a masking challenge. Here a custom mask has been made up using Tamiya tape.
The mask from Fig.16 has been applied to good effect.
Both sides of the outrigger tire have been masked and the demarcation between the tire and the frame also masked. The remaining tire will be masked using liquid masking solution (Gunze Mr Mask).
Work continues on the small details. The nose wheel has been detailed and I tackled the tricky problem that Hasegawa has given us in relation to displaying the canopy in the fully open position.
