 Got a coat of silver on the Skua. Revealed some minor surface imperfections. Cut back and will reapply tomorrow if time
 permits. Roc progressing.

Garet, the Defiant revealed quite a few lines I did not realize by looking at photos. The rear deck as well as the canopy just ahead of the turret were surprising. I am about ready to complete sanding on number one and just glued the wings on number two. I used the same method as the Spitfire filet, using the finger full of wood filler and gently smooth it out. Christmas is just around the corner so my hobby time is being cut short with shopping and visits to and from friends. I still plan on completing these by year's end.

Looks great Gordon. Is there a particular Squadron or are the markings generic?

410 Squadron RCAF Defiant painted and decals printed. Still need a tail wheel and prop disc.
2 Squadron RAF Defiant upper surfaces painted and still needs sly to be applied to the bottom surfaces. Decals printed. Require prop disc.

  Its L2933 /K 800 SQN FAA . HMS ARK ROYAL 1939.
  The red breaks up the silver.

  I might have to copy your decals for future use.

  The Roc will be L3084 - All silver
   The RAAF had Defiants for a short period in England- 456 SQN

  Roc stuck together just got to squeeze some time in between work and everything else to finish it off

  Thanks Lou,

 Looks Good  Lou.

 Managed to get a coat of primer on the Roc last night after work.

 Expect nothing much will happen for the next couple of days.

  Cheers
