Cheers guys.

Now that all the hard work has been done I primed the model and went over it with a fine toothed comb, fixing a few small flaws here and there and ensuring that the painting stage would be as hassle free as possible.

Image

I painted some areas with Alclad Duralumin and then used some masking fluid to simulate chipping over the airframe.

Image

I sprayed a heavy pre shade over the model with some patchy areas around places that would see a lot of wear and tear.

Image

This was followed by a thin coat of SMS Foliage Green, allowing most of the pre shade to still be seen.

Image

I then highlighted and mottled over the model using a lightened and thinned mixture of the base colour.

Image

A highly thinned mix of the original Foliage Green was then sprayed over the model to blend everything together.

Image

Some of the masking fluid removed to check how the effect looks.

Image

I used Tamiya white flexible tape to mask off the demarcation of the white tail.

Image

I then used the Tamiya masking tape that has plastic sheeting attached to it to protect the rest of the model and sprayed the white.

Image

The Boomerang is starting to look the part.

Thanks a lot guys.

A small update. The kit tailwheel yoke was made from thin resin, and it wouldn’t have stood a chance past a light knock plus I lost it anyway! I ended up fabricating a new one from 4 pieces of brass, drilled and pinned together and then soldered to give a very strong assembly that will give me much greater confidence hauling it around the country.
