We didn't manage to meet up on Friday so no more progress until Monday.

She's not ready for paint yet Tm, next up the fin and canopies go on then there is a little filling and sanding to do before the wings go on; then a base coat then the black So it will be after your birthday that you will be able to start painting the airframe

Tom,
I'm more then impressed with your finished Talon. I know that the plan was to hand paint it, but the finished paint looks airbrushed it's just that good. Decaling is dead on perfect, and that NM band by the tail exhaust cones is spectacular. Well done, very well done.

Excellent work Tom, and that colour is not easy to brush paint.
Looking forward to more of your work.
