I am sort of proud of this, so I will post a few more. I originally thought it would take a few hours on the weekend...man, was I in for a big surprise
I don't think it is ready for sharing just yet; there is still some more work to be done. Thanks for the good painting advice I got from all you guys on this site, it really got me over some big hurdles.
If you can believe it, the most frustrating and time consuming portion of this paint was getting the blue line and the white to wrap around the fuselage in straight line when viewed directly from the side. I'm surprised I managed to do it, actually. I'm glad that part is behind me
. I cannot even imagine how much work Mr. Catney must have done to create the original paintkit...I had to do a lot of customization, but still 95 percent of the work was already done, and given that it took me 2 weeks to basically make some emblems and re-arrange a few windows, I can't even imagine...
