Where Did Another Weekend Go?

I only got around 4 hours at my workbench this weekend. But I did get the fuselage weathered and the whole thing matt coated. Considering the problem I had with DecalFix residue, I’m pretty happy with the result.

Sadly, this is all I can do on Nanette for now. We are moving house in a couple of months and, even though I’ve invested in metal undercarriage legs, I don’t trust it in a move. So Nanette’s been lovingly wrapped in bubblewrap and put away, probably until the Autumn.

I will be starting on the Tamiya 1/35 Chieftain with the out of production Cast Off Mk VIII resin upgrade though – armour is much easier to transport.

20. Port side weathered

Port side – these aircraft got terribly weathered – as can clearly be seen in contemporary photographs.

21. Belly weathered

Nanette’s belly – complete with tar ‘smile’ on her nose. I haven’t weathered the u/c bays yet.
