Point take Doug,I will get around to venting it. In the meantime my son has a full size spray booth,car size, and is now spraying my hull in 2pack Merry Christmas Dick

Decided not to double plank as per kit instructions but skin the first planking with thin cloth 0.60 oz. Lot of rubbing down,now awaiting top coat Quick tip when using aerosol can or airbrush,use a large plastic storage container on its side as a spray booth.

Hi Dave I've just started this kit and although I have done modelling, rc model aircraft,for years I am still trying to get my head round planking the hull. I will be following your build closely, and if you don't mind post a photo or two in your build. Looking forward to more.
