Paint session (Lanc, Tilly, Mc-200)

I’ve gotten into a fairly decent rhythm of short painting sessions now that the weather has warmed up a little bit. It is still chilly in the garage, but not as bitterly cold as it was a couple of weeks back.

This one was mostly to repair some overspray that happened on the Tiger Force Lanc. There was a fair amount of masking involved, though it’s not like the overspray was all that extensive. I just hope that I didn’t get white overspray over the black areas that were already completed! This could become an endless loop. I also painted the insides of the Blue Angels A-4 intakes White.

The second color was X128 Engine Gray, meant to provide some dark accents on the Tilly truck from the Airfix RAF Refuelling Set. Still to come on this one is masking the wheel hubs and getting the tires painted.

Last was the X101 Earth mottling on the HobbyBoss MC-200. Again, perhaps not as tight a line as I would prefer, but the learning curve continues to be steep. I think that maybe a finer nose cap and needle are in order and will check prices shortly.

Again, no disasters and progress on some models, so I can’t complain.
