OK folks... wrapping up another long day.
I thought you might like to see a few images of another Venom as it is painted in individual sections and parts. It is so much easier this way!
This is the last cockpit I will have to paint. Of course, I learned the best way to do it just as I don't need to do them any more... :-)
The base! While these have an obvious decorative purpose, they also act as counterweights. All the sculpey under the panel weighs much more than the Venom itself, which will keep the whole thing from falling over on any sort of tilted or rough terrain.
And then a few shots of the various pieces.
Still lots more to do... weathering, dullcoate, glosscoate, and the canopy, etc.
Guess who was all excited this morning!
Somebody stopped by to drop off eggs...
