Another weekend painting session, mostly designed to catch up a series of small jobs that are standing in the way of finishing a series of models.
First is some detail work on the German Hurricane. This consisted of painting the outer gear doors RLM76. Somehow, I managed to forget them when I painted the lower surfaces. I suppose I could have just brush painted them, but I really can’t stand the look of brush painting when an airbrush is available. I can get away with it on interior bits, but would prefer not to do it on the exterior. I also needed to paint the prop and spinner RLM80. When all that is cured and final assembly complete, it will be ready for decals. I do need to mask and paint the wheels as well.
Next came the stripes and cowl on a P-47, painted in a dark blue. Since I was already planning to use Oxford Blue for the Hawk demo gear doors I just used that.
I put a coat of Azure Blue on the underside of what will be a Yugoslavian Hurricane. And this time I remembered to paint the landing gear doors as well.
Finally came the nose cone of the Lightning, painted RAF Dark Green.
