Finishing line in sight. Looking good, and an interesting scheme - yellow and metallic can't be the easiest of finishes, but it looks marvellous.

Thanks Q,

The yellow was a lot easier than the aluminium.

Admittedly that was down to operator error.

 

Cheers,

Alistair

I think it's done.

The Krystal Klear is still drying and the wheels aren't glued on yet but I'm fairly happy with it.

I know the font for the ( decal is wrong but it was all I had.

As you can see one of the wheels shifted during the photo session.

Finally @mark.au I hope this passes muster.

 

Thanks for looking,

Alistair

That looks great, what a great scheme to choose and execute :)

 

Thanks so much,

I underestimated how much work was involved in the stripey bits but I got away with it.

 

Cheers,

Alistair

Lovely finish Alistair, and a most unusual scheme for the Mossie,

 

Cheers,

Thanks Roger,

It was challenging at times with the masking but now that it's done I'm happy with it and it does look good in the cabinet.

 

Cheers,

Alistair
