While I experiment with my airbrush, I also decided to give spray cans a go. It worked marvelously and I finally have a metallic colored plane. After seeing Tom Cleaver’s post about the thunderbolt at D-day I decided to give it invasion strips. I didn’t have any decals for them so I masked and sprayed lacquer paint. I also really enjoyed the somewhat clean and shiny look so I kept weathering at a minimum. I ran out of yellow so the propeller tips don’t get painted until later. Hope you enjoy it!
