Moving on with the Tempest

I have now got the underside sprayed and masked and the Ocean Grey/ Dark Green camo on the upper surfaces. I am trying to lay down the black walkways on the wings. One would have thought that Eduard could have provided decals - but no chance.

As they are of a curved nature, I have had to make masks. To do that I have an undersized scan of the Eduard sheet showing where to put all the stencils.

I have scanned that and resized it to actual size and then made some Tamiya masking tape masks. This is where I am at the moment.

If you are interested in how the photo was managed, here goes:

The photo was taken on my iPad2. Under iOS5, this is automatically transferred to my Mac Mini using the new iCloud Photostream. I then cropped the picture in iPhoto and uploaded it.  Under the "old" regime, I would have taken the photo on my Canon SLR, placed the chip into the Mac Mini. Uploaded it manually. Opened Photoshop and cropped it then I could have uploaded it. Apple are slowly making lots of 'stuff' easier!
