            • A unusually wet winter has finally alleviated our multi-year drought and transformed our hills to lush green. Butterflies fill the sky as I maiden newest warbird to my collection - Avios Spitfire.

              • Is the Spitfire now coated in butterfly parts?

                • Surprisingly, Nary a splatter anywhere on the Spitfire! The four coats of polyacrylic that I put on her probably had something to do with it.

                    Nice flight. Did you use gloss, or semi-gloss acrylic. Currently coating my Spitfire and most likely going to use Semi-Gloss as the Gloss seems to show the foam alligator skin more.

                    • Hugh,

                      I used the gloss polyacrylic. Have had a can of it for years. This was the first plane that I start using polyacrylic. Thanks for letting me know that semi-gloss works better.

                        Just had a change of heart. Said what the hell, use the gloss. I just finished 4 coats of the exterior Spar Urethane gloss on my 1600mm Spitfire, the Corsair and both my F4's. Glad I went with the gloss, as the foam on all 4 of these is quite smooth. It's almost impossible to tell this is a foam plane now unless up very close. Looks like monokote when standing a few feet away. Keep using the gloss. Next up are my 2 B-24's, just love the look. I'll post some pictures of the before and after of some of the planes, quite dramatic. I originally did one of the F4's in the blue angel livery, and that paint was a semi-gloss, so the difference isn't quite so dramatic with one, but still love the look and just as importantly the foam is now much more durable. A friend told me to use the minwax polyacrylic, but a lot of guys in this forum also recommended the water based exterior spar urethane with the UV inhibitors, so that's what I used.
