Hi All,
A bit more progress. The decals have been applied, using the Micro Set and Micro Sol solution's.
A quick check revealed a couple of areas where silvering occurred despite the gloss finish. So using a hypodermic needle, I pricked the areas involved and applied some more Micro Sol.
Once dried, I will give the model a wash with a warm soapy piece of cloth, followed by a quick rinse, to remove any excess solution's, and then it is time for the varnish.
Some pictures to show:-

Hi Haddock,
Thankyou for your comment, yes, it is coming along nicely now..
As to the 'Kleer' I always use a number '6' size brush. But I find that it works better if you wet the brush thoroughly in warm water, then squeeze out most of water before dipping it in the 'Kleer'. Then it is just a case of quick light coats, allowing about an hour between coats.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Looking nice. Is the Klear brushed or airbrushed?

All 4 prop hubs now finished and blades made to fit these.
You will soon be up in the air wing walking Kevin - hohoho

Hi Msea,
Would you like me to adorn the bright yellow all in one job, just like 'Anneka Rice' for the event..?
Note, I now need a much larger, more generous size to accommodate my power pack (read Tummy)

Top of the car now has different greens added before the plants are added ( after they have all been made )

Will any of these plants resemble the 'Fungi' that you obviously take before your next modelling session....??
Bigkev

Or will it be those 'wiffy ones' from your greenhouse..?

It is starting to look like Neil - but the camera never lies so its back to the paint job for the right eye

Be sure that you get the 'Robbo Wink' right.
I dread to think what you will come up to represent me...?

Hi All,
Well a bit further on now.
Managed to paint in the red trim on the nose and tail.
Also I have applied 3 thin coats of Johnson's 'Kleer' to the airframe ready for decaling. However, I kept the 'Kleer' off the canopy parts, so as not to create a build up on the canopy frames. Once decalled, I will apply a final Matt/Satin coat to the whole airframe, including the canopy so there will be no apparent difference in finish..... I hope!
Decaling next...
