The Antarctic has been sprayed yellow
although it looks a good coat in the picture I can see some variance so another coat at least will be needed, I am also not sure whether to add a touch of orange next time, it looks a little too yellow at the moment, but I will see how it dries first.
Now the underside of the Hercules gets masked and sprayed.
the main wheel bays are closed off with their relevant doors. The nose wheel bay is stuffed with kitchen roll
and then it is blasted with neutral grey. Once this has cured I will fit the additional fuel tanks and then give a finishing coat before varnishing and decalling
Both Austers get a coat of light grey, to prime and cover the differences in filled and scratch built sections
I just have to remember which is which now. Not so difficult as the Antarctic has no prop yet and different legs
Next the base coats. The base camouflage colour of dark earth for the AOP and a white undercoat for the yellow of the Antarctic.
Time to start spraying the main bodies
starting with the Hercules the upper surfaces and sides are sprayed neutral grey, although it is one colour overall, at this size it makes sense to spray it in sections for ease of handling.
