The main painting is now completed on the Thunderbolt, I went over the grey areas with a slightly lightened mix of the base coat to help pop out the panels. The invasion strips and the red portions came out better than expected and really set off the model.
I have also been away for a long weekend to Bruges,Belgium and a great time was had by all with plenty of beer and chocolate consumed! As luck would have it the festival of the golden tree was taking place during the weekend and we witnessed a fabulous parade on Sunday afternoon. I even found two model shops which was a bonus!
