The Cougar turned out to be one of those all around great builds to work on. I very happily cruised on through without much adversity. Great cockpit detail and workable decals highlight this kit. It was a combo from Hasegawa so I have another to build in the future.
The clear matte didn’t turn out how I had expected but I still think it turned out well. For some reason it dried with a slight gloss instead of a flat look. Even multiple coats from different spray cans produced the same irking result. I played the hand dealt and moved on. I certainly can’t ever expect to be problem free and I am very pleased with the end result. The feeling of finishing a model never gets old.
