Thanks Joel. Good to know I haven’t munted something during construction!
Sweet Jebus! I never looked closely enough at that rod to realize it would look better replaced. And now I'm never NOT going to see that molded detail. So -- argh -- I'm going to have to see if I can replace it. Good catch, JoelSG!
I've heard bad things about Vallejo primer, it doesn't bond well to the plastic and can pull up with masking tape. Mr. Surfacer 1500 or Stynylrez are better choices.So I finally joined the ranks and my PG Falcon kit arrived. I also got through all 242 pages but I’m not sure I remember anything I’ve read now...lol. In any case, I’ve got some planning and building to do but from a painting perspective I think I’ll go with black Vallejo primer and Tamiya AS-20 insignia white as my base coat. Anyone use this combo? Thoughts?
