So next day. Go for ya airbrush and go for it slow kinda deal day.
Selected the appropriate colour's, acrylic yet again and had to mix the base
colour for the plane, masked the front canopy and cockpit and got a coat on straight
with no messing and just left it to dry.

The main canopy was brush painted off the model.
A few hours later and onto the next coat and repeat.
Last thing that day was to paint some of the different
colour areas but with enamels this time as
I have found there is a greatly reduced chance of disturbing the acrylic.

The hairdryer also earned it's keep that day.
