It's nice to see that you are applying the color coats.

I did decide to go with auto paint, and made the purchase yesterday.

Thanks for the advice !

Removing the masking tapes was cool. No big issues found.

I updated my weight and balance sheet. It seems that I am still on the 5 kg (11 lbs.) budget and the CG is settling on the desired position without extra ballast.

Bruce, how did you guess?

Ooh, now I understand! You're a model builder yourself, too.

Thank you, guys!

Let's say it is April 1943. Junkers Ju 88, serial nr. 088 3888, has just arrived in Finland. Its German markings has been painted over and its metamorphose from DJ+TH to JK-267 has begun.

I like your method of applying the original markings and then painting them out, just like it was done, back in the day.
