Nigel,
A most impressive OD top color with color modulation for sure.

A bit more incremental progress.
I got distracted and built an Airfix Hurricane.

Paint masks on order from Miracle Masks and time for the really fun bit.
Giving the aircraft its identity!

The gun bays will be closed Terri.

Nige,
Look 'in real good. The cowl Cock decal looks just like it was painted on. Can't get any better then that.

After another period of inactivity I've had what, for me, is a very busy week on the bench, resulting in the stars n bars, code letters, and serial numbers painted on using Mal Mayfields Miracle Masks.

Nigel,
The Masks worked perfectly. National Insignias, code letters, and serial numbers look just amazing.

Still plodding along with this when I get chance.
About 4 months ago I brushed the ProModeller wash on, its well overdue for being wiped off!

Nigel,
I'm fairly confident that you set a World's record for the long period of time to leave a ProModeller wash on. Sure looks like it came off just fine.
