Nigel, the covers are held in place with good, old fashioned, invisible, Diamond Tape. The fact that you didn't see it proves it's worth. :D

I am now at the stage of putting paint on the fuselage. The basic white coats of paint are on and I am now starting to hit it with colour.

Yep Stephen. At this scale a £7 can goes quite a long way.
I have just been out to the workshop and it all appears fine. Tomorrow I will take off all the tape and newspaper and see how it looks. (now that IS exciting Vince) If it is not up to scratch I will just have to rub it all down and do it again. (NO - JOKING - that's never going to happen!!!!!!!!!)
Brian. :D

All of the masking has now been removed and I am fairly satisfied with the results. Your can see I have chosen a colour scheme with a red under surface and blue upper, the aircraft modelled being BGA1117 - BPC. I will now have to set the fuselage aside for 48 hours to allow the paint to harden off before I do any more work on it.

Not so fast Stephen, there is still a whole pile of finishing and radio installation to do. However I hope to have the Skylark in the air by Easter. :) :) :) :) :)
The plans for the next project are already on the drawing board! :shock:
