The thing I like about this paint is it dries really quickly. I’ll still leave it overnight to cure as there is some minor touching up to do, but I can now make a start on the rockets

Have to say I’m really taken with the Korean Spad. The navy blue is really nice. Not a great deal to do to this one before I start weathering it, but I’m out of paint so that’s another week lost.

the prop on the Trumpeter plane is shite. I did pick up a resin one but it’s not the best. This prop is brand new on the market from Baracuda. I’ll probabaly be picking up two sets of these as I need to sort the ‘Nam Spad prop also
 
So you won’t see much of this one at all,
but on with wiring it

That’s the engine wired and attached. Shame you won’t see much of it but hey ho. I know what’s there and that’s what counts......

Its looking alwhite so far......................i dunno what it is with me & the puns....fook me. And no, I'm not a swimming pool 'accidental' death walt!

New batch of MRP paints have turned up, so I should hopefully have this nail in two weeks, which is what I was aiming for
 
Bit blue, innit?

the only benefit of having trashed the other one is I have lots of spares....

this is it with navy undercarriage. Most of the ones you see in snaps have navy blue undercarriages. It’s rare you see a white one.

a bit like the adverts on tele......
 
I know it’s still work on progress but I do love this plane. Spads are ace.

Had a little go at some wear and tear on paintwork.

and the black is a coat of anti glare paint for the pilot.

just starting to pick out wear and tear....
 
Weekend spent finishing all the odds and sods to get the construction over the line

And this one is interesting. Oil stains all black as opposed to the white you generally see
