Default Wish I could advise or assist.....

Malcolm, everything you shown us so far is exemplary model-building. If you don't want to show us anything more on this project, don't feel bad about it, and don't apologise. Can't offer you any advice on this most challenging part of the project, but perhaps there's a way for somebody on the ETF to help? Maybe the silver need to go on last? I don't know.....

Really sorry you feel this way about your efforts, just wish I could offer a crumb of comfort.

Kindest regards

Hi,sorry to here your bad news,I can tell your hugely disappointed,it took me almost 20 years with mine and I'm still not happy with the shape but the painting wasn't a problem for me,so my point is if you want to sell what you have left I would be interested.Ray

Thanks folks
I've been down in the dumps since it happened as I'd spent six months on it. All the parts of the model were finished awaiting either painting or fixing in place and I thought the model was looking really good mostly thanks to Mamas excellent kit. During the build I did think of just leaving the model in grey primer as I could have lived with that, oh how I wish I had listened to myself. As you know there are areas I get very nervous about when building, either windows, cockpits and painting. Up to this point my models have more or less been one colour and when I start up again I will avoid multi colour vehicles that require masking.
I tried to solve the paint problem but the more I tried the more it got worse and there came a point when it was time to call it a day.
I don't like to give up and would still like to have a Stingray but at this point I don't know how to achieve it.
foggyhome thanks for the offer but the model is no longer in my hands.
Thanks all and I wish I could have finished it.

Hi Malcolm, when I painted my 3ft stingray I found it the most enjoyable part of the build you shouldn't give up so easily it's not rocket science. If you would like me to help you please send me an email and we'll sort this out. I do hope you haven't binned the model that would be a great shame as well as a waste of time and money.

Sorry to hear of the trouble with the model.
The last Stingray I made was the Wave kit, a long long time ago, and although it's not that big, I do remember the fun and games I had masking the yellow and blue on the hull, trying to get it smooth looking. So I do sympathise.

Thanks for sharing what you made, it was good to see!
