I’m sure those word jokes will get old once I’ve done a few kits!
I applied a layer of primer on the FW-190! And I don’t feel the model is wrecked, but there definitely will be some work coming out of it and I am curious what you guys think about what to do now.
I also did some work on the front gear. I have to say so far I am really happy with my decision to take on a secondary project to keep things interesting! More photo’s coming as soon as there is more interesting stuff to show than 2 tiny parts!
The tack looked fine, both on coated and uncoated surface. Time to get this show on the road! Or, in a box is probably more accurate.
To be able to move the thing around while spraying I used an old brush with some tack on it (yes, tack has become an instant favorite) and planned on using that and the propeller shaft as a way to control the body without placing any fingerprints on it.
Primetime! Looking like an idiot?
Obviously I was a bit too busy with a good result to make photos while applying the primer but what happened while spraying: I got a big blob at some point and had to wipe it off with a tissue.. I then resprayed it and of course the result was visibly uneven.
I definitely need a better place.. after my testing a few days ago I went outside but decided to go back into the shed at the last minute. That is just a bit too dirty and dark to be ideal..
All in all I am not unhappy with the result. But I need to decide what to do with the areas I showed in this blog, so any advice is incredibly appreciated as always!
