Last week I attached the engines to the fuselage, and today I painted them. Turns out, that's the wrong order. The front of the engines is just above the wing and impossible to reach with an airbrush.
There are a few more spots where aerodynamics makes it hard to put down some paint, so when it's dry I'll have to see if they're acceptable.

How about using old technology, like a brush?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

The engines needed to be painted white, and in my experience it's difficult to get a nice, even coat in that color with a brush.

Yup, it's one of those problem colours for us brush painters

He's already done that and it didn't work....

There's room for both paint applicators in any modeller's armoury surely?

I checked yesterday, and I think I got away with it. There are some badly-covered spots on the aft end of the engines, but I can paint that section in NMF.

It's still alive, just not much to report at the moment. I've sourced a Dragon kit which includes a section of flight deck to display it on, painting and preparations for decals continue slowly but surely.

I've painted the leading edges and the rear section of the engines, plus a coat of Glosscote.

I've finally finished this:











It's mostly the Revell Fokker 100 kit, decals are from the OzMods C-2 conversion set, flight deck is from the Dragon F-18.
