Update:

more airbrush work done today, started off with the blue for the tail and the trims.
everything went good, the blue is on very nicely, that was until i started on the aluminium for the wings...

i had to learn the hard way that spraying Humbrol and Revell metallic enamel paints is a real pain in the ***.
i didnt matter how much thinner i used, it was still to thick and almost gummed up the works.
when the time comes to spray the bottom of the fuselage, i think im going to go back to handpainting for that part.

anyway it was a nightmare to spray on and an even bigger one to clean up, as the nozzle of the brush started to leak.
in the end, i managed to get it done somewhat right.
the white will be sprayed on as soon as the fuselage assembly is done.

some pictures.
