The final wash
As is very well known, I'd been pondering on washing the plane for a good while. Until yesterday my dominant thought had been "nah, I'd ruin it", but after staring at the model and the paintjob for weeks I just couldn't unsee the detail-loss on the panel lines. There was no alternative, my mind was set.

The end is nigh. Though, I was still pondering if I should apply Badab Black on the mouth of the cannon before I declare this project finally done. At long last.
