Airfix C-47; Stripey!

The invasion stripes are now painted, all I have to do is mask them off again and respray the green base coat as the stripes on the top of the wings and upper fuselage on this particular aircraft were overpainted pretty soon after D-Day;

As with the white, the black (Tamiya XF-1) was toned down using a drop of Deck Tan otherwise it would be too stark.
The de-icing boots on the leading edges of the wings will be masked and painted next and then it'll be ready for glossing and decalling
