Finally some colour on all silver to make it look more interesting.
I was apprehensive that the paint many bleed through the masks.
The quality of masks cut by Callie are excellent. The glue has food tack but not as aggressive to lift of the base coat when the masks are removed. I
I also made sure to spray a coat of silver after the mask was applied. This ensures that any bleed under the mask will be silver and the mask edges get sealed with the silver coat and help in preventing any bleed under the masks.
Thankfully the entire process went satisfactorily. Here are some pictures

Next picture shows all the sorrounding cover removed and just the masks left on. The masks were removed while the paint was still tacky. This helps in the paint edges settle down and does not leave a raised edge of paint.
And the last two pictures of the finished wing markings on top and bottom wings

Had been on the prowl to get a set of working  luggage compartment over center catches. Finally some research, some known folks and some waiting got me the cut parts and I set on work.
First picture shows the catches on full scale. Rest of the pictures show the one for the model. Made from 0.8mm mild steel, cut on waterjet, some bending, hammering, some pieces of wire and you are almost there. The over center piece that locks will be sized and fitted once the pieces are screwed on to the fuse. The first picture shows how the cut parts start and thereon.     
The entire assembly is just proud of one inch. The one on full scale is around 4 inches

Manish,

Kudos to you on the luggage compartment latches and the paint job on the wing markings. I keep checking in hoping to see it completed and feel that it will not be long now.

Hello! Peter, good to still see some interest in the build log. Yes there has been some progress but then life intervenes. Even I feel that it's tantilizingly close now, unless I discover a major issue that may have gone unnoticed till now.
