Airfix 1/48 Lightning F1

Airfix Lightning masked  
I've sprayed the spine and fin with Tamiya black, and not masking and painting the bare metal. I am using Tamiya Aluminum, tinted with various shades for the panels. It just seemed easier and I couldn't get Alclad 2 locally at the time.

Applying the decals, my goodness there are a lot!

Nose detail  

The panel colours are pretty spurious and random, but I like the over all affect. It is a beautiful kit, Airfix at their best.
