Thanks @LDSModeller! Very helpful indeed :) 

 

Last night I discovered there were two sets of flaps with this kit... brain fart moment! So with a little surgery removed the ones I had installed ‘up’. I’ll paint the other set seperately to avoid the masking dilemma. I chose to do this as most aircraft seem to have their flaps down on the ground. Something to do with the hydraulics, or so I’ve read. 
 

Cheers

Hi all. 
 

Busy prepping this one for primer. Got some sprayed on today using the Vallejo polyurethane grey primer. Worked a treat. Going to wait for this to set properly before spraying some silver on the wings tomorrow.

How did you find this to spray?  I sprayed the poly black primer once and it totally clogged up the airbrush and it took a major strip down and clean to sort it out.

Hi @Andwil

 

Personally I didn’t have any issues. Might thin it a tad next time I use it though. No clogging or drying on the tip. I’ve had issues with this with Xtracrylix but not this. Hoping their metal colours work alright.

 

Cheers

Hi all, happy valentines 😉

 

This afternoon I sprayed the silver for the wings and elevators. Going to wait 12 hours at least as per recommendation for the paint to cure completely. Then a fiddly masking jobby before I can do the bare metal for the rest of the aircraft.

Cheers

Don't feel bad..........I did the same thing on my A-36 build! :wall:

On a D I can understand, but an A-36 without stores pylons just ain't natural!

Hi all,

 

masked up and sprayed Vallejo chrome onto the bare metal areas. Sprayed very well indeed. I’m liking the subtle variation between the silver and the chrome. Next I will be spraying a slightly darker metal colour around the exhausts and the black anti glare panel. Then onto decals and weathering! Cor this build is going quick 😳

 

P.S i rectified the absence of pylons @RidgeRunner🤦🏻‍♂️

Hi all!

 

And I’m done! What a quick and enjoyable build. Thanks to all those who assisted with references and @RidgeRunner for the cuffless prop and rocket stubs. I shall take better photos and put in the gallery at some point this week!
