    G'day, I have been browsing through your albums and found spotting cards. I find them an interesting idea. I have a question: how do you use them?
    Thank you in advance.

Painting the Helmut Ju88A (Part 6)

by Stormkahn on 03-24-2011 at 15:31
OK, so 1st up and bit of an apology. I'm getting fuzzy in the head and earlier I did say the font for the decal lettering was Ariel, well I lied it's really Blockschrift für Flugzeuge. Get this font, not only is it correct but comes with a few crosses too.

The Micro Sol did just what it said on the tin, several applications, just applying wiht a brush and letting it soak under the affected decals has done the trick. They still don't look so good but at least they're now firmly

Painting the Helmut Ju88A (Part 5)

by Stormkahn on 03-22-2011 at 01:32
Decal time!! This is the bit I love because the model really comes to life

Having cut up the crosses supplied with the model I proceeded to soak the 1st one and waited for it to get slidey. And waited and waited and waited. After 3-4 minutes I pulled it out and pulled the backing paper apart, it was very thick indeed but split in layers easily enough. Another minute or so and it went of fine.

With the subsequent ones I soaked them briefly before splitting the backing

Painting the Helmut Ju88A (Part 4)

So far so good, the paint has gone on well and above all it's been clear were the detailing needed to go.



As you can see I'm still using the Humbrol Black which is drying glossy, grrr, that problem will go away when the matt varnish is applied so I'm not too stressed with that.

If you remember I said the camera was a harsh mistress, this is were I've used it

Painting the Helmut Ju88A (Part 3)

Before I forget the decal images were made simply using Paint Shop Pro (Photoshop type product), the badge was pilfered from the WWW and the font is Ariel in this case.

The colour around the decal was researched here = http://www.paint4models.com/index.html, just enter the hex code directly into your paint package and away you go.

I measured the model with reference to images of the aircraft to find out what size they needed to be and scaled the image. Don't make my

Painting the Helmut Ju88A (Part 2)

This is what it looks like after step 7. I also decided to paint the underside (RLM 65) before applying the decals, that's simply based on the principle that you always start with the lightest colour and build up so with the decal boarder being dark green the underside had to go on 1st.

The white section shows through the clear in the badge to complete the image, I've included
