G'Day All,

Been working on kits in the back ground. Keeping to the RAAF Theme, here is the Airfix 1/72 BAC Canberra painted and marked as 1 SQN A84-227.

The panel lines were rescribed and the raised panel lines sanded away. Few mistakes were made during the scribing process that needed some patching.
Model was then primed with Gunze 1000 Surface Primer and black based with Gunze H2 Black acrylic.
Gunze H1 White was then applied in a random pattern.

The top of the fuselage was painted white and masked off.
Vallejo Metal Color Aluminum was blasted through the airbrush - still have problems getting this brand to airbrush, thus the need to blast is through the airbrush. Attempted to do panel varation, however something went wrong with the main Vallejo Metal color, which lifted when masked... so plan jane silver scheme. I checked with a friend and these aircraft were painted silver, so no panel variation was present - kinda boring being a plan Silver colour.
I airbrushed the fuel tanks a different colour to mix it up a bit.
The Bombay, wheel wells, under carriage and doors were painted Gunze H8 Silver and weathered with Tamiya Panel line wash.
Bombs painted a Olive Drab colour and glued in.

Decals are NovaScale Decals. A84-227 isn't an option on the decal sheet, so had to carve up some of the existing decals to make up the number.

Model had Tamiya Black Panel Line wash applied.
