It's coming along well Gaz and I hope to have it paint ready in a couple of days. :)

This looks great John!

Which yellow did you use? From which supplier? I‘m curious how it will look like with the gloss yellow! 

Thanks Kai. It's just Testor's flat yellow from their little .25 oz bottle. Same with the gloss yellow. I figure using flat yellow for a primer/base coat would work well. :)

Nice decisions on both the flat and gloss yellows. Your creativity with paint and an air brush is exceptional.

Keep ‘em comin

Peter

Thanks Peter. Just many years of experience. :)

So in the time it takes me to glue a couple wing flaps together, you've almost finished yet another build.

As always I'm impressed by your speed and quality of work John.  Great idea to prime with the flat yellow. I've always found yellow to be one of these paints that seems to be translucent.

Thanks Carl. I agree, yellow can be a problem. As it is I had to apply 2 coats of flat and 3 of gloss to get satisfactory coverage. 🙄

The gloss yellow look so good. I'll have to give your te4chnique of gloss over flat a try.

Keep 'em comin

Peter

Thank you Peter. It works with all of the lighter colors, white, light gray, etc. :)

Easy peasy Peter. It just takes a lot of paint! LOL (I used up all my gloss yellow!)

Nice looking finish, John.

Nice and glossy Gaz! The decals should lay down nicely then I'll overspray with semi-gloss. :)
