Looks like you've painted on the plane plastic. Never seen that before.
Do you mean it looks like I painted directly on the plastic without a primer coat or any kind of base layer of paint? If so, that's totally true of the old model. Most the kits I built in my teens I wouldn't paint if the plastic was in the right color to begin with. I have since changed my mind about that. This build will be painted better than the old one. I just threw that up there for comparative purposes.
