Put the Missile Red on today after a 7 hour masking session.

Thanks guys. A few more photos. The red was an old pint that I have had for some time, it is a little off but close enough, Next time I need red base I will take a new sample of Monokote to match. The windows are cleared which provides a nice scratch resistant surface, they will look better once sanded and buffed. Temperature was perfect today for painting, only killed 2 bugs, decided to paint outside rather than set up the paint booth in the back of my garage.

Spent the last day wet sanding and buffing the cowl and canopy. On the cowl I used a small pneumatic 3" buffer with foam pads, I was afraid to use it on the windows so that was all done by hand, since there is not much resistance to deforming, each window took about 5 sessions of compound to get the sanding haze out. Yesterday the inside of the fuselage in the cockpit area was given a coat of Stone Gray paint. Ready to put the stuff back inside.
