Very nice and great paint job.  You picked the hard to use yellow and really made it work.  Looks super.

Camnight (George) - Excellent job George, cuts and edges look nice and smooth. Each piece must feel great in your hands. Colours are nice an bright and the finish looks superb.
Did you hand paint or spray?

Very nice build Camnight.
I am building one now and yours is an inspiration to me.
Love your use of color.  One question:  What paints did you use?
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks again for comment guys. Ken I use paint made in Australia called Ecolour non toxic it is water base goes on very smoothly and great to sand. I put on a couple of undercoat primer and then a colour close to the one I want to finish with because I got all the basic colours made up, then spray with rust-oleum for finish, then they also make a poly clear, then the bee wax paste.
