I’m out of time for this weekend and, although she doesn’t look so very different in the photograph, much has been accomplished on Nanette.
All the decals are on. Both wings and her underside have had some weathering and washes applied now and a matt coat sprayed over to seal it. That includes her smile. In the book, Edwards Park describes how he ran over a pool of tar or similar and it stained the underside of Nanette’s nose for the rest of her days – I had tried to reproduce that.
Next weekend, I’ll be working on washing and weathering the fuselage.
