    3rd coat and starting to look better. I also re sanded her and put the right colour on. Thought it was yellow some how but only the back flaps and back rudder and engines are yellow.

    Will have to take it all off as the paint cracked. Im a bit ed but with modeling you cant rush things if you want the job done proper.

    Staying up all night isn't going to help your sleeping issues lovely.

    Sorry you've got to take it all off - do you know why it cracked?

    I couldnt sleep any way suzi, I have did a few experiments using the paint painting old parts of left over kits. I suspect it was a case of not letting the primer cure long enough but it could be the weather. A lot of the men on the modeling forum are painting with the fans on and windows open.

    This kit is becoming a bit problematic so i have decided to put that one away and use it for practicing my airbrushing etc and buy another one and start again!. Sometimes its better just to put it away and start again.

    Oh no! Is it just this particular model or are you buying the same one again?
