Hi Guys
Just about ready to start painting SKY 1 .

Next wk weather pending , i'll spray the wing tips first white , and then i'll mask them off and apply the gold colour , a couple of coats before a gentle cut back , then the silver and black , then the nose cone colours.

As you can see the windows have been masked off already for primmer painting
enjoy

Hi Guys

Managed to get the guide coat on today ,first i sprayed the model a dark bronze colour its so good i'll be useing this on Eds car , this was then rubbed back and stopper filler added again on any imperfections ,then the top colour added , ford oyster gold the bronze underneath gives the paint a little more depth , again more stopper applied to any more little imperfections ,i came across.

At this point im just a bout ready to apply the final top coat of gold , before the silver and black are added.

more soon

Hi Guys

The main gold colour is all finished , the wing tips and the missle cones and the top of the tail fin are painted white so now ive started painting the silvers area's , any touch painting will be last .

The rear section im really pleased with, im going to add a slightly different shade of silver to give a panel effect later on , ive also just sprayed the leading tail fin edge silver .

Next job is the leading wing edges
more soon

Hi Guys

This wk if been busy adding some of the other paint work colours needed to bring this model to life , at present im still on the black area's over the top sides of the wings , these black strips i think are just tape on the original , what a night mare doing these things , sounds silly but if you look at the white wing tips it looks as though the strips run at a angle that are not square , but those large plastic pieces that are above the rocket motors mounted on the wings look as though they run the same distance apart , in other words they run parallel to these , any way im happy with the results , but untill all the other colours are added , then i can use the 2 other shades of gold that ive had mixed to add contrast before adding panel lines etc then dirting down at present its too clean .

anyway just in time for the wk end
more next wk

Hi Guys

Well nearly finished , the basic colours, just the red strip and then a gun metal look for the nose , after that the fun starts , you can see a little of the overlap colours around the side guns area as a test look .

First thing is to mark out all the flap area's , so contrast gold layers can be built up , also around the main body and wings , masking off area's that i'll add weathering detail later , adding decals etc , panel marks copying over as much as i can , too make it look like a, original screen used model .

Hi Guys
Managed to get the overlap gold applied last week , first thing was to mask off some panels following the pattern photo's of the original hero model, then over spray with the darker gold , all the flap detail were scribed in and then once the masking tape removed left a nice contrast detail area , that now needs outlining in dark grey pencil and pastel shading , then i can add the distressed rust look to the clean panels that were masked off .

Next job is too repeat the underside flap detail , before scribing the side panel details ,before adding the decals ,and then the bit i love weathering the model, to match as best i can the original model .

So loads left to do but the finish line is now in site .

more soon
Best
