I'd start by apologising, it has been quite sometime since I add to/ updated this blog. Over the spanning time the modelling mojo has ebbed and flowed. I've been encouraged by Sithlord to get my act together and post some updates.
Work on the Patriot has continued, ever so slowly. Applying the lining decals has been an experience
Just as I was about to order some nameplates, the NGS shop closed, so now just awaiting the modelmaster section to be updated to order some plates.
The lining in the tender needs some attention. Using microset/sol and mr softner have had average results. Even consulting Phil Badger (1/3 of Ixion), still couldn't improve them.
