Filling light leaks on the NX-01

Today was fill light leak day and I almost got them all except for a few I’ll finish off tomorrow.

It’s a real pain going around with putty and fill little cracks and trying to keep it put of the fine detail. Luckily Squadron is forgiving and easy to carve. Some of the cracks like the ones in the hanger Aft bay area were really hard while others like the horribly warped seams on the nacelles were easy.

What wasn’t easy is where the seams meet (or didn’t) over the bussard collectors. There was a huge gap there and nothing I could do outside of sanding down the bussards would make them fit together. But they cleaned up well.

I still have to final sand and repaint of course but it’s going well. I have just about no leaks in the saucer rim. Maybe to I’ll get tomorrow.

More tomorrow,

Steve
