Thank you  :))

Today, I first have airbrushed Future on the wheel traps. Then I've airbrushed Tamiya Flat white as a primer for the part of the under fuselage that will be covered by the radiator.
Then I have Airbrushed AK Real Color RC316 (AMT-7 Light Blue): I confirm that the use of those paints is a pleasure!

And finally I've changed my mind and will build the aircraft of Marcel Albert (from Normadie Niemen); so the propeller bosse have to be painted in red/wkite/blue...

Interesting idea for partially use of flat white primer

I decided to proceed in such a way because I think that a little bit of putty will be needed...

Radiator is in place now. I have also weathered a little bit the wheel bays (that must receive matt varnish) and painted and weathered the propeller bosse...

Decals are set on the propellers; then white primer on the aircraft and AMT-7 Light blue airbrushed...
