Builds A-1 AD-6 Douglas Skyraider in 1/32nd scale

Second blitz on the new build and it’s now ready to prime.

I’ve ordered some MRP dull aluminium primer to save time so no need for halfords finest.
 
So bought some of this to save some time and I’m a convert. Fine metal primer. Absolutely ace and only 4 squids.

Still debating putting a layer of green on before I do the final layer of navy blue.

You did suggest MrP is a good product. Have to agree. I’ve been tinkering with it on my Austin Tilly and happy with the results.

I’m sure the Spad will be splendid .

Seriously impressed with it. The range is expanding as well.

I thing I’m not going to bother with the chromium green and just get the top coat on. Just want the thing finished.

Little bit of metal exposed under the panel lines and that’ll be it I reckon
 
So started on the navy blue and this is going to take ages to get on and it bloody stinks

It’s probably going to take a week to get the navy paint on as it’s a slow job
 
@Simmerit - what's the process/why's it going to take so long?
The lacquer takes ages to apply as the plane is huge and it needs multiple coats. Under surfaces need doing now but I won’t be able to do them til Thursday as it needs to cure before I apply any more.

anyway - here is is so far. The finish is stunning. Really like this paint. Glad a re did the Korean one. Loads to do but it will probably be done by mid December, then I think it’s time for the Wokka. I’ve talked enough about the fcuking thing!

Please note, despite the excellent work, @Simmerit has not confirmed which December the wokka build will recommence :)

tempted though I am to start a new one, I’m going to work on the stack of half complete ones lying around, and the Wokka is top of the list. I’ve got a lad from Odiham who’s on Wokkas pm’ing me at the minute asking when it’s going to be restarted. He was told about it by another lad that’s on them at the minute. That Wokka is famous! It’s got to be nailed

Does this add a little temptation?
