the overall Chrome is SM01 Mr. Color Super Metallic - Super Fine Silver
the inner wing panel is Humbrol Alu 11(new Humbrol)
the panels are AK Silver (lighter) Revell 99 (medium) nd Revell 91(darker) and the engine area Humbroll 11+Revell8

you can pollish the hole fuselage,especiallly the grinded join of fuselage and wings or filler and pollish

is this what you need Kari?


Oh yes, many thanks Cherrylock ! That Mr Color super metallic looks truly Super ! :-)

Good looking Sabew! Great scheme.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Hi there Carlos :bye: Yeah buddy, I got that mojo working overtime right now. My Meteor Prototype is finished and awaiting a trip to the airport for photos, and my Tigercat is getting very close. I have a Hobbycraft Bf-109E-7 that's almost ripe for assembly and I'm about to start the old Monogram F-102 for my first Monogram build in years. That's sort of a return to my roots I guess.

Whew! Man, I have to keep that flame burnin' if I ever hope to thin that stash; heck, I've even been thinking about where I can put another display cabinet! :lol:

I'll have some pics up soon and hopefully an update or two. I'll be back. :wink:
