Aircraft Part 2

The last time I built an aircraft kit I was five and it was a Red Arrows jet, poorly glued together and plastered in thick Humbrol enamel paint! This time, it was to be a more accurate job, beginning by taking the kit and giving all the components a coating of white primer then allowed to dry fully.

Once the primer was set, the wings were put to one side and given a coating of Humbrol metallic spray, then again, allowed to dry fully.

The two pieces of the wing components were then fixed into place and allowed to dry overnight.

The fuel tanks were next to be fixed onto the wing, these were removed from the kit and fixed to the underside of the wing.

Once the fuel tanks had dried in place, the wing was given another coat of Humbrol metallic spray and allowed to dry overnight.
