Hope to get back to this sometime this weekend.   I made a mod of the arm cannons that i will share too.   Decal art is done and will be getting my order into JT Graphics for the print out sheets.   Reminder that i will forward that to everyone once i have it in hand.

Agreed,  on mine i used apoxie sculpt for the two rear doors on the front and the 2 rear doors on the back of each leg.   I tried to use the included parts first but it was such a pain i abandoned those in favor of the apoxie sculpt.  If your not familiar with apoxie sculpt it accepts scribe lines wonderfully and is easy to work with, non toxic too.



Wonderful build here,  you have some amazing patience!



For the closed landing gear doors, I recommend going over the whole area with polyester putty, like Mori Mori. I gives you a good surface to re-scribe the panel lines after sanding everything smooth.

It's somewhere in that neighborhood,  it's something to play with a bit but how i do it is to wet a wide brush with some oderless mineral spirits,  the load it with some of the oil paint,  then start to brush it on a model,  then dip the brush in OMS again and again until i get a nice even spread that is semi transparent.   Too light and it won't stain the paint enough or deposit enough for shadows.


That is for the filter/wash only,  the color modulation is a much more delicate operation.
