My 1973 Tamiya JM2 Raiden

Postby stephen8718 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 12:13 pm

hi guys here are some pics of a kit i just finished. Even though its a 44 year old kit it goes together really well. the only trouble spots was the fit of the canopy and the gap in the wings when glued together. this kit nearly ended in the bin as i used Halfords primer and once again the can was faulty and primer came out like hard chalk so had to strip all the primer off and start again. next time will test primer also on old kit before painting.
As usual Humbrol and Revell enamels and the Kit Decals except for the reg number as it comes in white for the green scheme.

fantastically exotic and perfectly executed as always Stephen, I never prime anything as it just increases the chance of filling in fine details, maybe it doesn't or it's just a paranoia of mine. I'm really looking forward to that Sabre.
