I've changed my mind for what concerns the way to go for painting the Renard...
Black polyurethane base (Vallejo) was applied before to use Vallejo metal paints - But first the fabric covered parts of the aircraft will be painted with Gunze H8 Silver: my goal is to give different nuances between the fabric parts and the metal parts.

Same process for the wing but I've encountered some problems during the paint phase and it was necessary to remove the paint and to do the work again...

Remember decades ago some articles in British magazine how to do metal and it is true, all who know material, know that it is not real metal from silver painted surfaces. I am sure your work will eb top at the very end.

Thank you my friend. First time I will try such mix of different renderings of metal but I think result will be good...

Perfect method for this--doped fabric surfaces have a color all their own.

Masking session today. Not finished yet...
I prepare for the surfaces to be painted with metal colors. Wing is ready but fuselage is in progress; I was too lazy to continue today...

Masking is tedious, removing it and seeing the results will be wonderful!!

Vallejo aluminium "metal" airbrushed in two sittings. I must say that after first one, I've had the envy to remove the paint...
Vallejo metals are very good but as all Vallejo paints, drying time is too short and you have to use retarder. Anyway my airbrush stopped to spray  frequently and I had some blotches on the kit...
So, let all as it is, go for a walk and then come back...
Little sanding, airbrushing time shorter and that's good...
