SW – Virago – painting and chipping

The paint on the Virago consists of a mix between grey and brown, and the only available colours (matching the colour description) I have is Humbrol, which takes a bit longer to dry sometimes. I’m using vaseline as chipping method.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Gonna go over the chipped areas with a brush later.

Half of the body is also painted.

Next I’ll paint the last wing and the underside of the other two, and paint the 2nd half of the body.
