Prior to painting three coats of poly brush thinned 3:1 are applied, the first if a mist coat, the next two are cross coats. The Poly Fibre manual and video are invaluable.
Tail feathers and fuse ready for the spraying of the poly brush
I made up a temporary spray booth from poly sheeting hung in the workshop
An inexpensive compressor and spray gun
After the poly brush comes the poly spray. Again thinned but this time 4:1. This is the start of the second coat
Two coats of poly tone follow the poly spray. I masked for the edge colour with what I thought was the correct tape. I did get a little bleed through on the tape where I didn’t press the tape down hard enough. The cheap masking paper I used also let a little paint through. Use the best you can get! I can clean things up though. Photo shows the vertical stabilizer and rudder completed
Horizontal stabilizer and elevators completed
Center section completed
