Thank you guys. It's just a matter of getting the parts together, fit is so good that most of time is taken by painting and weathering. Also last few days I've been having lots of free time. :piliot:

Canopy inner frames colored with XF-71 cockpit green before primer coat. Then primer applied and shading along surfaces features such as panel lines, riveting and cowlings camlocks. The idea is to help the painting process to generate volume.

Thank you guys for the nice words :piliot:

 

Well painting for me is the funniest part of modelling. Gradually spraying coats of Xtracrilix Medium Sea Grey on lower surfaces. Random streaks are applied so faded effect is achieved.

 

Tamiya XF-89 Ocean Grey 2 is applied on upper surfaces in similar pattern. I might post shade with paler tones.

More dark green painting advancement, there was lack of concentration at some point; I put dark green on the port wing tip, and pattern isn't what should be. No worries I'll spray ocean grey again on that spot.

I think I'm getting satisfied with camo scheme. Now I'll seal the whole thing with Pledge and getting started with decals. As mentioned before the yellow band will be masked and sprayed after decals leaving the decal No 6 for the last.
