Update: I had to cancel Monday’s stream, I will replace FFN with the model stream instead. Apologies!
The result of the poll over the weekend is in. You have chosen the B-17F “Flying Fortress” model kit. Tonight we will be working on all the smaller parts at my desk. Tuesday to Thursday we will move over to a larger table and work on the body of the aircraft and fitting the smaller assemblies into place then finishing the paintwork.
I think my biggest challenge will be painting a large surface area model like this without an air brush. I will be doing the base colour using an Army Painter “two in one” primer and base colour spray can. All other coats and detailing will be done with traditional brushing, stippling and dry brushing with some techniques I have been studying recently. I am notoriously bad with decals as well so that is something I will be trying very hard to get right.
I will try to do as much of this project as possible on stream but some stuff may have to be done at other times for logistical reasons.
- Tuesday: Small assemblies and preparation
- Wednesday & Thursday: Large assemblies and fitting sections together
- Friday: Finishing main painting and decals and adding some weathering and other details.
