Hello fellow forum members,

It has been a long time since I was active here.
But, now I'm back in action.
And I'm happy to announce that the build blog that I did share with the title above, is finally finished.
I didn't knew how to do it in another way to mark it as finished.
So, I'm doing it this way.
Feel free to post your comments below this thread or to post it in the build blog that I had posted and kept up to date as well.

Good job getting it finished
I'll share one of my methods with you: before I started using an airbrush I found out that I should blow air (using my lungs) through netting after I had painted it.
This removes the paint which could otherwise clog the mesh.

Thank you Robin for your reply.
Do I get it right that you are meaning the paint that is hanging in the grills on the back off the tank? At the engine compartment?
First time I red this I didn't really get it.
But now I might be.
Thank you for the reply again.

The grille on the right side looks as if it has paint stuck in the mesh
I have also used this method when stiffening plastic mesh to be able to cut it without having the threads fall out along the edges. Wet a small section with CA-glue and blow away the excess, continue the next little section. Do not inhale the glue fumes, it hurts ....
