Hi. Just finished the landing gear and attached the MK 82"s to the MER. A gloss coat was appiled to the model prior to applying the decals. I'll probably start on those this week, thanks for looking, Wingman out.

Thanks Chuck. I tried to replicate the look of the landing gear as best as I could from the great walk around photos on the Aircraft Resource Center website. The wash is made up of Future mixed with a little drop of India Ink and just a tad of acrylic Raw Umber artist paint. I just finished applying the red stripes on the nose and will start on the decals very soon. Thanks for the kind comment and for looking,Wingman out.
