As a companion to the previous post, Masking Kanu, I also have videos I took during the process. I wasn’t able to upload the pictures since I didn’t have time to convert the video files to flash format so better Nate than Lever…. Videos after the jump.

Getting off my ass and finally getting some work in; it’s time for a little update. In long run, it is good that the parts were allowed a good amount of time for the clears to completely cure. For the wash, I used model masters black thinned with napatha based lighter fluid.

Here are some before and after pictures of some of the panel lined parts:

And this Nu is pretty much done, with the exception of the funnels.

Next up will be the finishing work for the other Nu.
