The masking for the fuselage is finally complete. Now for some red paint and 'gator decals.

Looking good Cole. Can't wait to see how this looks when done.

Thanks everyone. At last, the major paint scheme and decals are done. It was a tedious process to say the least. After the decals dry completely, I will shoot a light coat of flat clear. From now on out, it should all be downhill.

Outrageous design - I love it. It's rare to see British planes painted up this way.

A final wash applied to the wings and fuselage. I may have overdone things a bit. Most of the bits have now been added to the fuselage. All that remains is the aft machine gun and rigging. Next is attaching the lower wing and preparing all of the struts to attach the upper wing.

Cheers to all. It's been a couple of weeks since being able to work on things. For now, I am making final preps to attach the wings. That includes decals for the wing struts and attaching the Gas Patch turnbuckles. The angle of the turnbuckles will have to be adjusted after the rigging has been attached. Also, the aft gunners' rig is finished.

Well, the Bristol suffered some damage. Whilst moving some things at my desk, some items fell on her. The result was: The tail and upper wing aileron broken off, the gunners' machine gun frame broken in half, and the tail landing gear broken in three pieces. Also the alignment of the front landing gear and the fuselage/wing alignment was upset. Needless to say, it was doubly frustrating as I have no one to blame but myself.
After a cooling off period, I have set about making repairs. Then the wing spars have been attached to the lower wing. That in itself was a nerve wracking experience.Now I have to add the turn buckles and the rigging to the upper wing. Also, some small bits for the upper wing such as gun sights, and friend/foe chart.
It was downright depressing to muck things up as I did. But the repairs appear to be holding. It will be fingers crossed the rest of the way.

Sorry to hear that, Cole. I'm sure your attention to detail will make repairs unnoticeable.

Still looks great to me as well! I really admire your hard work on this one. It's reassuring to read I'm not alone in frustrating accidents too!!!!

I tried to see any of the damage you reported but can't. Obviously your repair skills match your building skills
