Got the canopy on, and sprayed a dark primer on it for the framing, showed up a couple of gaps that needed filling.
A sand back and then a couple of coats of Tamiya Fine Surface primer and it was paint time.
I have trouble picking schemes, especially when a subject like the 262 seems to have so many choices, but after a bit of time, I decided to go with a RLM 74/75/76 scheme. To me it looks even more modern and fighterish in the greys.
This afternoon I sat down and mixed some colours up using the Tamiya acrylics I had about, then while the family were out at sports this evening I painted it..
Freehand with using some post-it notes and about three strips of masking tape for the straight edges. I really enjoyed it.
So hopefully decals soon.
