Not much moved on the build completion. Today did the wheel cover logos. Not the best paint job, contemplating on scraping off the paint and redoing it all again

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



Would be good to make a stencil for that

Or, you could even cut it from Vinyl. If you use Nicolite brand, it's permanent and won't peel off

The logo is moulded in the cover so vinyl stick on will not look good. I tried masking off but that did not work. I will scrape the paint off and try redoing

Painting, oh what a pain. I have had to strip my 2 seats today as i painted them on friday morning before work, and before the house was warm, they were still tacky 24 hours later  Angry
Now your wheel hubs. Many years ago i had to paint something very similar on a ships name plate, no it was a real ship, not a model. What the older salts used was a bit of fine sponge, like the sort you use in the shower, or the wife uses to apply makeup. Fold it an tape it withh gaffer tape or selotape so that you have a curved surface and something to hold. Dip the curved sponge end in some paint but dont soak it, then treat it like you would during your weather process, ie get most of the wet paint off by dabbing it on some paper. You can the gently dab you wheel hub, and as its raised you only paint that bit. Slowly slowly though.
Hope it helps

Why not use a red permanent marker?

Yes the marker is a good idea, but where do you get the marker in vintage red colour?
If you would look close you would see some corrections that were attempted with a silver sharpie over the red paint.
I think the sponge idea is worth trying

I have just painted my wheel logos, red does not cover very well, I used a paintbrush that ended in a fine point that I could put a drop of paint onto the raised areas with and then tease it out. It was still not perfect after two coats, but when you lok at photos of full size they are not perfect either, hand painted on old surfaces, we just have to make sure our blemishes are 1/4 of the full size ones.

Peter, if I squint and look from a distance, my handiwork still looks good. Just that the picture was taken much closer that makes it look horrendous Smiley

Wonderful! Wish I could even dream of reaching such levels...

And do make sure to paint the creep marks in a colour that would contract with the hubs and tyres

 I have to confess I have not been focused on the Tiger due to various reasons and the project is now way behind.
Been doing some small jobs that need to be done on the model. Started working on the instrument panels. The panel is made of plastic and ply sandwich and the instruments are from http://www.aerocockpit.com
Here are a few pictures of the work in progress. One panel is done as far as instruments are concerned. The compass needs fixing, the oil pressure gauge remains to stuck on and the graphics attached and then various placards with warnings and manufacturers numbers etc

Great!

That compass housing (I think) in the last picture reminds me of a Mariner's Compass

They are very good instruments, crisp clear printing, and look good in the wood panel. They will set off the cockpit nicely.

Iyer sir, can't do much about the already printed dials. And these won't be visible to anyone unless the person is looking really up close.
If you meant that's the error, I was talking about, it's not
