Absolutely. However, in my case, I do not have the talent for it.

EJ--Though you may not yet have the skills, after seeing your work, I can say that you certainly have the talent.

LoNslo,

Thank you. I appreciate that. I have seen the work of craftsmen using a brush make very talented spray gun masters bow their heads in respect.

As in calligraphy, there's a special beauty in the simplicity and efficiency of brush application. Virtually all the product goes on the surface, rather than in the air or on a bunch of masking paper. So comparatively little solvent is evaporated into the environment or wasted in cleaning equipment.

"No comparison to spraying. You just can't get that beautiful finish from brushing, at least in my opinion."

And with a brush, you use a LOT more paint/weight.

Regardless of how it gets painted, I'm looking forward to seeing you finish this. You've put so much great work into it over the years.

Finding this thread really got me thinking about my dad's plane a lot lately. I used to have a nice 8x10 color picture of it, but I'll be damned if I've been able to find it in the last 20 years. Really upsets me, because I've always wanted to build a model of it but I'm starting to get hazy on exactly what the scheme was.

This photo is the closest I've come to it, but I don't think it is exactly the same.

Thank you for the offer Tom. Figures you'd invite me out this time of year, LOL! Talle would have to make room for TWO more in front of the heat vent! We spent a little more than a year in Ann Arbor, my wife knows the weather too well.

It warmed up overnight. It's 13F, but of course, it's snowing.

Maybe I should pay you a visit, and paint your model where it's WARM. LOL

I can see it now: You'd be walking around in shorts and a t-shirt while us desert dwellers are bundled-up in parkas!
