Bag the Hun Operation Bodenplatte 
I knew I was going to have some problems with bare metal finish aircraft but this is really winding me up. I had a go at a test model this evening, in an attempt to blackline the control surfaces and paint in the canopy. The end result is definately sub-standard and does not bode well for the remainder of the P51's.
I think my decision to use an ink wash over the bare metal was, in retrospect, a mistake. It just makes them look 'grubby' rather than defining the panels or adding detail. I'm also crap at lining out, even though I invested in some new brushes a few weeks ago.
I'm hoping the decal will lift the overall effect and make up for some very dodgy painting!
