    My M_S ESB Progress

    I finally found the time to get some build up shots of my M_S 1 ESB, here are the first pictures, all Ive done here is square up the cheeks and the area behind the ears to make them more accurate, I'll have a pic of that up tommorow, Ive been following JFJ's progress on his M_S and while my efforts arent as good I hope to get somewhere near as this is my First Boba bucket ive painted up and I want to do a good job, let me know any comments or suggestions, anyway on to the pics....

    Looking good. Amazing how a little thing like squaring off the cheeks will make such a big impact on the overall appearance. Take your time and keep up the good work!

    Re: My M_S ESB Progress

    Ok heres a shot of what ive done to the area behind the ears, I squared it up using a dremmel sanding drum, it was quite simple, I then smoothed it out with a bit of fine grit sand paper, I also added a few spots of Bondo as there are a few areas that needed filling, the RF stalk is attached using an 8mm countersunk bolt, I fitted a washer and nut on the inside to keep it secure, more pics coming, I am applying the chrome tonight, thanks for looking guys

    UPDATE **

    I applied the chrome layer two nights ago and have just finished masking off the mandibles and upper cheeks ready to apply the olive green, I also used Humbrol maskol masking fluid to cover the main areas of battle damage, if all goes well and im happy with the result I'll get some pictures asap!! Fingers crossed

    Here are the pics I took yesterday, here ive applied the olive green around the dome and inner cheeks and the dark green on the outer sections of the cheeks, I used Humbrol Maskol to mask the areas that I wanted to be exposed with the underlying silver, basically this stuff is great you brush it on and after about half an hour it dries to a flexible film, apply the paint, leave it overnight and then simply peel off the film, I was really pleased with the results, Im now adding the dark grey around the scratches and masking the areas on the mandibles ready for the boxcar red, Ive been using all spray cans for this with decent results, the colours are the closest that I could get to the RS colours, let me know any comments or ideas or things that I have missed, im sure theres loads

    **The second picture best illustrates the colours Ive got, its taken in natural light**

    mustard instead of masking fluid. It is next to nothing to buy and rinses away once you top coat is on

    The dark green is by Tamiya, it is simply called 'Green' I think it needs a black wash to make it a little darker, Webchief pointed this out to me over on the RPF.
    I just checked, its PS-9 Green, all the colours are picked by me, I dont have an airbrush or any experience with an airbrush so I chose to go this way, if the results are good then Im going to hopefully get an M_S 3 and try to progress my skills, if any
