We nearly blew it...

A cold day in the Hutt today as the tonal quality of the two images in this posting will attest.

At first glance, it would seem that there has not been a lot of progress with Ka942. This is because I had to rework the front shroud - it was just too multi-coloured - and like the good oil painting that it isn't I layered shades of grey and blue over the top in an effort to correct it. It's better and completion of the rest of the reflective sheeting will draw it together (so to speak):

Brett's Subaru also shows little progress, except that he too had to invent a blue to reflect the prototype's actual colouring:

Rumour has it that Brett has sold a print of the Kittyhawk...

P-40 takeoff

finally completed this one.. signed and sprayed!
Interesting background but gouache on cartridge paper is not the best combination.
However.. thats it! God bless her and all who sail in her..
