After an excellent sunday lunch and a nap, I woke to find myself cheering Mexico while attending to the Kona. They bombed our chip shop.

It was always going to look worse before better as the kurust converts the corroded areas to a blue/black.

I had a little play on the steerer to see how the humbrol would look. Definitely has potential to hide a few battle scars. Obviously one colour at a time on the rest.

Today is a yellow day. Tried overpainting then air blowing through a straw then flicking a paint brush. By the end I’d got completely carried away.

Well it’s more yellow than it was.

No pictures. Too timid to share :lol:
