Had a major painting disaster with the CW-15.  Still working on it trying to work out a painting, masking method that will work.  In the mean time, I saw this on FB and thought it hilarious.

I see where the Peck restoration earned a Lindy award at the Oshkosh fly in.

After a long time away from the CW-15, I've returned to it after eight months or so building a 1:12 SPAD.

The reason for stopping work on the model was a major disaster with spray painting acrylic blue paint and major leakage under masks.  After lots of consideration, I decided to hand paint the blue with a brush using color SIG butyrate dope.  Started covering the wings today but the fuselage is finished.  The vertical tail was completely stripped, recovered and markings reapplied, the Travel Air logo with blue ink and an old fashioned nib pen.

Registration numbers finished today.  Painted by hand, no masking.

A 1/12 scale SPAD?  Any chance you got photos? We need details! You always do good work. I wish I could hand paint details/trim like that.
