The weather isnt being to kind at the moment and drying times are increased beyond belief ,but slow and steady as they say . I'm on the home run with this puppy now all the painting on the fuse is complete and the wings are currently being filled and sand ready for the primer. Also have my radio for it sorted out
which was a bit of a drama but all's well now .

pretty happy with the progress today even working with green paint without peeling it off with the taping for the rest of the pin striping guess you can be lucky some times

Started adding detail stripes yesterday, after an initial bit of paint bleed under the masking I was able to correct it by re taping and using the airbrush to clean up the edge.

thought I'd add a photo of the colour in the shade which is closer to what it actually is as opposed to bright sun light ,plus i stuck the wings on

Ok today I managed to get hold of the French Royal blue ,well at least as close as I could get ,have to say its a very powerful bright blue that a fact, however should be reasonable visible in the air . Lots more detail yet to go .
