Progress on USS Wilkes
June 1, 2013 in Ships
Lots of painting, lots more to go main colors are on for the Measure 22 scheme she wore from 44 (possibly late ’43) on through the end of the war. Need to do lots of touch ups, the Italeri Acrylics I used for the light grey gave me fits, seems it gets lumpy if you don’t use what you mix right away. Sprayed great when I first mixed it up, but is not shelf stable so using it over several paint sessions does not work. Anyway, so far so good I think.
