Painting is well underway. Typically there was some bleeding under the masking tape, a few strokes with a silver Sharpie corrected it. Matches well with the MM rattlecan I used:

Pineapple is a great pizza topping. Fight me.

Another blood sacrifice to the modeling gods. IT IS A GOOD DAY TO DIE!  :wacko:

Cor, that looks a handy tool, does anyone know if those Sharpie paint pens are available in the UK?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Here's the link to the UK web site, they might have a list of who stocks them: http://www.sharpie.co.uk/

WHOA! Too many projects on the bench in front of me:

Revell RCN SAR Convair Bowrider/Tradewind

Airfix DH Comet 4, probably ootb Dan-Air

Matchbox DH-125, hopefully with personalised markings for Simon Templar, The Saint

Hobbycraft CF-100 X-wing, RCAF

Academy Minicraft 1/44 F-4 Phantom, as I imagine modified by The Wooksta!, because he thinks the original is butt-ugly  ;D

Airfix bullfinches, because I like birds

Airfix P1127, started but with no idea how it will be finished

AMT ERTL NASCAR Monte Carlo, only because it was a door prize at a show

Testors Spitfire 22, Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, 50s era aircraft for cruising to look for forest fires, renamed Spotfire

AMT Star Trek Galileo 7 shuttlecraft, putting a toilet in the back, ST nerds will get the inside joke

Testors/Hawk Royal Navy Supermarine Swift

Frog/Novo Supermarine Attacker, markings to be determined, might be Belgian just because I have some decals from the Hobbycraft Canuck

Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Mk1, out of the bag, because a couple of years ago it struck me that I had never built one

Matchbox Wellesley, ootb, but the next one won't be!

Academy Minicraft 1/144 Mitsubishi Zero, annular wing (zero, get it? ;D )

Airfix 1/72 Gloster Meteor MkIII, might wind up as Tuskegee Airmen colours, probably Lee Archer's Ina, the Macon Belle

Airfix Bf-109, discovered in a German warehouse at the end of the war in British Union of Fascists markings

Airfix Commonwealth Boomerang, probably ootb

Airfix BP Defiant, RAAF tankbuster, probably renamed Bunyip

Airfix P-80, possibly another Tuskegee, but it suffered a paint disaster

And I still need to decide on something for the anthonyp build

I usually haul out the Sharpie for any small bare metal areas, landing gear oleos or prop blades for instance. Instead of shaking and stirring a paint bottle, finding just the right brush, then cleaning it afterward, just uncap the pen, make a few strokes, and you're done.

Decaling on the Bowrider has begun, foul language soon to follow. Once they are finished the props and floats will be attached.

Centre strut of a float is now irretrievably lost to the carpet monster. And I have a bare wooden floor!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
