Finally got back to the P-51 (Durafly)

shot two coats primer onto the wing tonight. It's not a bad start. Next I'll attempt to carefully etch the few panel lines into the new section and clean up any that were buried under the putty. Finally, I think 320-400 grit and one more primer coat. Then prep for a finish color...

I know it sounds like allot. But, ain't nothing compared to plastic modeling!!! Also, I'll fly this model in "pre-loss condition" or better so help Me gawd!!! After I maiden, I may let My self slouch a bit.

I scheming on an complete repaint... Not sure yet... stay tuned.
