Initially a postal service with just 4 seats and pilot and co- pilot, 1920 era.

 

The decals are not transparent, having a greyish tint to them.

Thanks Bish. As I'm a rattle can sprayer I use a lot of Plasti-Kote enamels, this one being chrome.

I think they've changed the brand to Valspar as it used to be donkeys years ago!

Hi,

That looks great.  I love seeing these older planes, and the tail looks so differentSmile.  It really grabs your attention.

Thanks PFJN. Yes the kit has two tail fins, one for this version and one for the wheeled undercarriage.

It's just "Different" enough to catch my attention.

ok..... It's COOL LOOKING !

( I swear by " rattle can's" BTW.)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Thanks littletimmy. I like different, and cool and rattle cans. I'm not keen on airbrushes, they are too complex, paint plus thinners and cleaning time etc. not for me.

Hot water in a ice cream tub, can in to atomise the paint, still shake and ready to go!

Watch out with really big kits, however.  I started with an airbrush using those propel cans. I kept them in a pan of water about the size of one of those tubs.  I would pick the can up  every couple of minutes to redistribute the heat.  Then one time I picked up the can- it seemed heavy- and the whole thing, can, pan and all, came up!  The water had frozen!  The compressed gas is a refrigerant.  That is when I decided I needed an air compressor.
