Fuel tank gets a base coat of what I see as a more or less appropriate gray (Tamiya XF-20). After painting, I noticed that I’d never entirely eliminated the gaps around the stabilizer inserts, so on with the surfacer. I’ve been summarily booted off of J-aircraft.com, so can’t really ask for confirmation there, of the specific color used for this.

Apparently, sometime since I joined a year ago or so, they've decided not to allow members with a Gmail account. Since Gmail is all I have, I can't re-register either, nor can I contact the system admin there, as I need to be logged on to do that.

Tail wheel strut now shot with MM oiled steel (I have no idea why it appears so "grainy", but looks fine in person), and tire painted with a very dark grey. Again, clear coat will undoubtedly help, as will a nice wash. I also globbed some CA around the upper portion of the strut (not visible on finished model), as this is a particularly weak point in the assembly.

One area that still needs some serious work, is the tail section to fuselage joint. While my visual examination (before primer) indicated this area was OK, it obviously isn't, and highlighting this fact, is one of the great things about primers. I also apparently neglected to scribe a few lines, but I'll make short work out of those.

Now the good news/bad news. MLG turned out great, at least on the inside,...

But I fumbled one of the gear assemblies immediately after painting it, dropped it, but caught it, naturally grabbing a hold of the freshly painted surface. :blush:
