OK, I don't know what is going on here. I posted a reply but it hasn't saved!?
Thanks gentlemen for the encouragement and CC.
I think you are right about the panel lines, they are too much. I did the wash (Mig Neutral) slightly differently by applying it only to the lines and not all over.
I think this made the lines too pronounced as I did an all over wash on the Sea King and "Gina" and that worked fine. With the satin varnish going on, it defined them even more, but I wanted to get away from the "Dinky Toy" look.
A shame really as the scheme looked great prior to this. Still, a nice addition to the shelf.
I will have to look at the pre and post shading techniques.
Oh and Scott, you are right, the grey does go back too far. Revell have shown it correctly, I just took the wrong line as the reference point to finish it.
Also, looking at photos now I can see that there shouldn't be any panel lines on the radome anyway!
Finally, I wanted t put bulged drop tanks on the build, but these don't come supplied with the kit!
