I haven’t put up a new post in this series since October but you’ve gotten glimpses of color painting. I finished that up on the weekend. I’d painted both ends of the scoop fin red before assembly, even though the instructions don’t show the rear end as red. They show… well, I’m not sure what. The only colors called out are red, light grey, and dark grey, but the rear scoop fin looks like an even darker grey or black. Anyway, I changed my mind about the red and decided to go with black.
The dark grey decals are a different hue than the dark grey paint, but I’m not letting that bother me.
