Thought I would share some of the paint work done so far from my very good friend Rob.
I couldn't be happier with the progress and how it's turning out.
Here us the vertical stab.
There is no orange peel, contrary to the angle you see.
I have gone with a two coloured scheme. Both colours are metallic 2 stage.
The metallic silver is called Antique Silver from Acry Glo (H10491) and the metallic blue is called Imperial Blue (F5347) from AkzoNobel.
The rudder will also be checkered. Tail and top of fuse will be blue and half the fuse and wings will by silver with blue accent.
There is 4 coats of clear on most of the parts so far.
Cant wait to see the final outcome....Rob is painting it like it is his own and takes great pride in it...a lot of hours have gone into the checkers and he's cursing me for it...his first checkered job....glad he's doing it!
