Thanks Rich. :D 


I rotate around my builds, so I'll have something I can do each evening.
That's the one reason I usually have two to four ongoing builds at the same time. 
Yesterday I glued one of the flaps in place.

What ever you do don't rush and risk spoiling it at the end. We can always ask @Enzo Matrix for a time extension if there's a lot of unfinished projects nearing completion as it'll help Wreck-It Ralph @trickyrich break the internet forum poll.

Hi :D 

I've had a very productive weekend. 
Friday evening I started to paint my Draken. 
49822757832_a61fb13b2a_k.jpg351 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr
First the bare metal areas on the belly. 


Then during Saturday I continued with 058M grey.

And then yesterday I could flip it over and start on the topside camouflage with 438M Blue Grey.

And I thought that is was spring time...
Well it'll melt away during the day.


I've done three coats of green and blue on my Draken now.

Thanks Col, and I totally agree.  :D 

Springflowers and light green foliage on the trees are much more appreciated this time of the year.

Nice colors on that Draken. The final week is nearly upon us, but it seems you are in a good place with the build. Still plenty to do though, no time for slacking - same with me with my MiG! :D
