I am striving hard to not allow myself to fall back into modelling inactivity, so yesterday I again braved the garage and did some painting.
Given that I still had a number of planes waiting for White paint, that was the color I started with. Having run out of Xtracolour (due to the British Post Office’s embargo on enamel paints) I have been using Model Master Gloss White. It doesn’t thin terribly well, tends to run even if you don’t thin it, and isn't the best covering paint either. But it’s what I’ve got.
The victims this time were an assembled Hasegawa Lancaster (which will eventually be in a white and black scheme) and a DC-3 (the future “Arctic Rose”). The Lanc looks like it will require a buffing session and a second surface coat. Probably the same for the DC-3. Repeat to myself: this is progress.
