Dsvid, I'm still astonished by what you can do with a brush.

So much to learn and so little time left. Thanks for the information.

A medium is something added to the paint to change its characteristics. Gloss medium makes the paint shiny, matte medium makes it dull. Other mediums thicken and one makes the paint dry slower so it can be handled like oil paint. There are also mediums just for oil paint.

Very nice, DD. Now I need to ask, What is gloss medium? The P-61 is in the paint shop, but I'm afraid it won't look as good as this.

Thanks, Ray. I have never used it for a model but it should work. After all this paint the yellow is still fairly flat. While covers better over a coat of light gray, just enough black in it to make it gray. For this I started with several coats of a mixture of yellow, white, and brown. Then I added more yellow to the mix and applied a few more coats. Finally I added more yellow and then had to whiten it up to what it is now.

Gloss medium! Never thought of that. Thanks for the tip DD. It's looking Very sweet. The two toughest colors for me to apply are white and yellow as they are so translucent that I end up laying them on too thick.

Different color schemes

what's the difference between the navy yellow and the navy red and white color schemes?

Very smoooooooooooth!

It has lots of paint on it which will now sit undisturbed until next week. I need to add a gloss medium to the yellow to make it shiny before I paint on the distinctive side exhaust panels and the wing walks which are flat black.

Thanks, Brian. Yes it is.

is that the navy version david? looks good!

Mellow yellow it ain't :-) this morning it's getting several coats of the final color. Yellow is tricky in that if it isn't correct it looks completely wrong. I had planned for cadmium yellow medium straight from the tube but that looked too harsh. I finally added some white to it and now it looks just fine.

I was thinking more of The Beatles Yellow Submarine....;)

And then for some unknown reason the song "Lemon Tree very Pretty" popped into my mind. Sorry.:) :)
