    This is just a simple reworking of the 'Chuter 2 kit. The paint scheme was basically made up as I went along. Kinda wanted a military theme, with no particular accuracy intended..I.E. Sport scale. Various random decals were taken from different kits, including a Revell funny car model.

    I like it, Unique.
    I take it you don't like to round or taper leading/trailing or other fin edges?

    It depends on the kit....and my mood. If I have the intent to make a shelf queen, then yeah, I do. To build one I'll fly, I don't bother rounding, tapering, beveling etc... I've done my share of sanding........

    Dry ambient heat has always worked for me. couple coats of grey primer, then chase the whole kit with gloss white,...let it dry for a couple days.....then mask and paint your final colors. I had the privilege to live where it was zero humidity and hot with no wind; miserable to work in, but made painting effortless.
