Mk2F RFP paint

The Fatadder

325 views

Today I took advantage of the warm weather to do the majority of the painting on the Mk22 RFB, first priming the buffet area and then spraying the grey.

 

Typically I have now ran out of masking tape so I can’t do the rest. I might just use a set of fox transfers to add the red stripe and touch up the yellow stripe

 

My attention to detail is awful at the moment, (in everything not just modelling), I missed adding masking tape to cover the lower coach side

Fortunately it was easy to wipe clean with some thinners

I also did a bit of painting into Merlin, with a second mk3 sleeper and a mk3 TGS both needing the buff adding

Unfortunately that lack of attention to detail came back to bite me,

Yes, I forgot to mask one side of the TGS!

 

Now I will need to respray the white over the top of the dark green!

The yellow first stripe has now been painted on (by hand) there are two bits that need touching up on the side plus the red stripe. The latter I will try tomorrow with the transfer. Else it will be sprayed once I have masking tape.

 

The. Just need to add the door open lights. If I can find my Hurst models fret
