23. First time assembled in colour
Model assembled with its scheme. Right hand image is it on display at LMA Gaydon 2017 show. Receoved quite a lot of interest. Would have had the turbind fitted but it was supplied missing the mounts, so was a rather espensive paper weight for 2 weeks.
I use a 2k primer in grey, rubbed back to it was almost gone, then a 2k white, again rubbed back just slightly. I use 2k because it sands away easily (or the stuff my local car paint supplier sells does)
Then a yellow automotive, just picked a colour from the cards that I liked the look of.
Then, and this is a new one on me a fine mist spray of Ziralac a pearlecent pre finish.
The whole air frame was then given a 2k fuel proof lacquer using Klass Kote gloss clear.
I find finishing a model the most difficult part, something always goes wrong, and it did here too, there are some small runs, and an area on the underside (fortunately) where the lacquer is a bit matt in appearance.
