Two coats of lite blue and a wet sand later

My modeling skills are in need of rejuvenation. It has been over 20 years since I have assembled one of these things and it shows.

The body, hood, firewall, front and rear pan all received an initial coat, a wet sand with 600 sandpaper (all I had around). I then took a hardly damp towel to remove any sanding dust. Everything got a second coat of enamel after that. Next time, I will work with thinner to try to reduce some of the inherent gloppiness that the paint seems to produce.

I think that there may be another round of touch ups and then it is off to the world of the engine compartment.
