I just read this comment (Wednesday 18 August, 2021, 12h38).
The Marauder isn’t painted “interior green”. It is painted (in the cockpit and nose, and rear gunner’s turret) in Dark Green (Tamiya XF-67 NATO Green will work). The bomb bay is Neutral Gray, and the rear fuselage is unpainted aluminum.
I told you My Forgotten Hobby was like a sitcom full of surprises. I always have a draft written one or a few days before I hit the Publish button.
On Monday night I had painted the cockpit area dark green, then not liking what I did, on Tuesday morning I got thinking that I should use zinc chromate instead.
This is what I wrote on Wednesday morning…
Lots of excitement when I start painting and my workbench proves it.
I first tried this shade of green which looks more a dark gray on some parts and then I changed my mind when I saw these photos on this Website…
I reverted to my homemade zinc chromate which looks darker here.
The wings have been glued in sections with extra thin cement. No gaps to be seen.
I did some dry fitting and noticed a gap on the starboard wing. I scraped a little plastic which was causing it.
I will give a final coat of zinc chromate and paint the cockpit details. Next step should be mating the fuselage halves.
End of the intended post.
