Started slapping paint on a day or two ago . All paints are Humbrol Enamels .Started with a black pre shade ,followed by all the flat white areas including the underside , Then Gull Grey topside . I still need to paint in the bare metal panels on the rear and a few detail parts ,then its onto the Decal slog !!
