More green

Now for the Airacomet

20190811_095559

The camouflage is an unusual pattern, presumably based on USAF rather than RAF guidelines

20190811_102551

With the green sprayed

20190811_103151

And unmasked things look good

Not so green

With the base colour dry

the pioneer is masked up for the green camo

job done

Missile link

No masking is needed on the SR.53, it being overall white. However a splash of colour will come from the wingtip missiles

These start with a spray of home-brewed light blue over a white primer for the fins

Which are then masked off

20190804_092157

And another coat of white base

20190804_110932

And then bright red for the body

20190804_111041

Very colourful

Yellow bellied 2

The Airacomet

20190810_115428

Has also been masked underneath

20190810_122349

And sprayed the base camouflage grey

Yellow bellied 1

The yellow undersufaces are now masked

20190810_120153

A fairly straightforward job

20190810_122400

So the upper surfaces can be sprayed base grey

Another White Night(mare)

Unlike the other two models the SR.53 gets white primer overall

This had also reacted with the aluminium, so that is clearly an issue. Some finishing coats of Vallejo white will be next. At this stage though I am thinking that white primer is a waste of time and effort. The Vallejo white gives just as good coverage over a light grey primer to my mind.

Green Knight

the Airacobra also had it’s undersides sprayed white

20190803_101849

with no ill effects

20190803_133004

but I still smoothed off with Vallejo white

20190804_111136

and then the yellow

20190804_111207

again, all has worked fine
