Hey, All,
I finally finished all the seams work and got the bird primed with Mr Surfacer Black 1500. I then spent some time getting silver down. Lastly has been doing some "basing" prior to the Neutral Gray and OD going on.

I have the 1st coat of gray and green down. There will be much more to come. I hope the variance in the paint comes through in the pictures. I am estimating several more light coats and then some upper surface fading. Then comes the chipping and dirtying her up with and, and, and more sand.
