I filled the gaps with putty
and sanded ...
sanded again... it's a borring but unavoidable task.
For a perfect result I use Mr surfacer after putty
And of course sanding one more time with the finest sand paper I have, grade 1000 and 2000
Then I readyed my srcibing tools
And started rescribe the panel lines wich were errased by the sanding operation
re engrave the rivets
The best way to control your work is to look at the model with light in front of you. It makes the model shining and as you can see the surface, the panel lines and rivets are nearly perfect
That's all for this week

Nor law nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds.
A lonely impulse of delight
Led to this tumult in the clouds
Just some pictures, I was in hollyday and only worked a little on the Spit
Today she looks like this :
PE radiators, verry nice details
Now I'm building the "little things wich take long times"
And drilled little holes...
Surely re-scribing is worse than sanding though?
The advantage in mastering rescribing is that you haven't to worry about filling gap and sanding. You can rebuild everything you erase with your sandpaper (or nearly everything, I'm not so gifted...)
After dark grey with lighter grey on the leading edge
Maskol pathches done with sponge
spray a black thin layer
Removed the maskol, the effect is a little bit overdone
Another thin coat of black to tone down the effect.
Sky colour, with preshading, or prelightning depends of your point of view
That's all for today, I have to weather and give a more operational aspect to the prop but later.
