    Hey Jordan ,

    Thanks for re-posting these images mate , they really do enhance her look . Though they aren’t ( as you say ) found on the SS model - with that amount of detail anyway .
    They easily replaced the stock pieces right ?.... As in you didn’t have to make major modifications to the panels , or perform difficult surgery to end up with your terrific finish in that area or on those parts ?

    Cheers, they're glued in tight but could be removed if I really wanted to apply the original stock vents (which are weathered/done too).

    Same here on awaiting 100A

    I thought they would be here by now. But in reality probably another mistake by Deagostini. I will give it another week before calling customer services.

    Happy New Year Darkview.

    If you haven't received 100A yet, perhaps you should contact DeAgostini ? Seems they have been available in UK since October or so.

    See details on whats been happening here,

    http://forum.model-space.co.uk/defau...ts&t=21768&p=5


    A nice one showing better where to apply them.

    If they have to schlep over to China to shoot a new sprue for just a few parts, you will be waiting for a long, long, time ...

    Hi Jordan,

    was just wondering did you do a single or double coat of paint on the coloured panels ?

    edit : Decided to do some single, others double. Just to give a bit of variation.

    Got my 100A too !!

    He lives !! Was starting to get worried mate ! Can't have been bad in Bangkok at this time of year though :-)

    Ok thanks. pretty much as I did to get a bit of light color variation with the same color panel to panel.

    Any chance you could take those grid reference pics over the entire top/bottom of your bird I asked about ? Perhaps when you get time and come back to European winter reality ? :-)

    Hi Darkview, im reading your blog since the beginning of my Falcon-journey and you gave me the power to start and proceed with the oil-painting method. Thanks a lot for that and all the beautiful images of your ship. Your work is just stunning gorgeous. But what happened to all your pictures? On every page there is this fu.... photo bucket blocker! Are the pictures lost in space now? What can i do to watch all this hot stuff? Im now starting the upper side and need your guidance.
    Hope their is way to see them again.
    Still keep my fingers crossed for your 100A parts.

    Thanks, that’s PB for ya, read jager1960 comment at the top here if you have a main computer or labtop. I’ve been using other photo servers since PB got overly greedy.
