Aerial Flyer - On to the paintwork


A short bulletin on bit more progress made today...


All the main structural stuff is done. The bomb racks and ventilators are in place. The railings will come next, followed by the Nordenfelt guns and the 57mm Rotary Cannon. I've already begun painting the hull black. I made a flight stand for it this evening which helps the painting process. The liftwood/Corbamite panels underneath will be a bronze-brown colour.

The finished construction looks great and it is enhanced by the painting. Looking forward to seeing it in action too...

Inspirational colour scheme, reminiscent of the old pre dreadnought Navy. Love your work.

Thanks, Gentlemen! I did feel the Victorian pre-Dreadnought scheme was the best for the Flyer.

I've been busy with the garden these past few days so not much more progress to report on the Flyer. Hopefully I'll get something done by Monday.
