Sleeping on it is sometimes the best thing to do, but I couldn’t wait.
I used a soft bristle paint brush with Vallejo Gray Primer to go over some areas.
Yellow identification markings had been added before to the Tempest using a Tamiya cotton swab and Vallejo yellow paint. I skipped airbrushing although I had masked the wings leading edges.
Not perfect but it will do.
It still needs a few touch-ups using Tamiya cotton swabs but this will have to wait.
I will now get back to the PBY Catalina and complete it. Displaying it will come later.
Which brings me to reflecting on what I have been saving all those years with all I have been building.
Why do I keep all this? Is all this useful!
I have thrown away most of my model kit boxes, but I keep saving the instructions sheets of model kits I have built. Some I still have but most I don’t have anymore like Monogram F-104.
Have you been saving this kind of stuff?
What you have been saving all these years, Pierre, is both absolutely useful and important. I wonder how many others have such archives.

I haven’t save everything. I can’t find the B-24 instructions sheets I had built a few years back.
I can believe I threw it away.
According to my wife, i never throw anything away. That’s mostly true.
