that's GOTTA be a hasegawa... looks good!

though, if you don't mind me pointing it out, i see a step in the colors on your wings. that generally means you're spraying the paint on too thick or too fast...

on second thought it could also be a raised panel line, i can't tell...

ALSO, which green tape are you using? i used to use a green painters tape for masking and other things... until it ripped the paint off of a wing i had just finished. it also could never give me the sharp lines i wanted because of a sub-par seal allowing paint to run under it. i now use 3m blue painters tape, with no problems.

Beeautful! OI Can't Wait To See It Done. A Few Years Ago I Had A WIP 1/100 Scale DC-10 Which I Was Customizing For A Canadi>n Wings Over Five Livery, But My Landord's Son Sat On It While He Was Drunk.
I Still Haven't The Heart To Throw It Out. That Was In 2004...

I Just Noticed, Your Tail Section Appears A LOT Too Light. These Were Like A Navy Blue Or Black/Blue If You Will, Identical To British Airways Landor.

Hey guy's thanks for the comments! And yes, this is a Hasegawa Kit, I also agree that the paint is a little too light, it said mix 28 drops of gloss black with ford GM engine blue but it still appears a little light, I'll put in some more black maybe.

Ummmm... thanks? Lol, I had quite a bit of help from friend's dad who is big modeller and has the whole model shop I use.

Yes, I notice the green stuff he has isn't the best, so seen as I bought a roll of blue painter's tape, I'm going to use it, especially for the fuselage and the tail. This is my very first model, and as is probably quite apparant, it's been a big learning experience and for my first airs, I will definitely prime everything before I paint it. Beeing able to easily scratch off your paint sucks a lot.
