Sorry for the late post, but life has been throwing a lot of curve balls these days and between a dental filling, a major shake up at work and my HoP responsibilities, it's been all I can do to distract my self with my hobby - let alone blog about it. So here's the progress report for day 7, a little late but not forgotten.
In happier news, it turns out that the little base coat experiment from day 6 ended up with a solid result as the process of spraying the actual green base by airbrush was a lot faster. I'll need another try with the method for science's sake, however, before I'm ready to commit to it.

Though I do have to worry about whether or not I managed to match this batch of green with Vindi number one. I didn't get a chance to do the final coats of the Clear Green, so I'll have to wring my hands for a night.
Now, working on two tanks at once has been a pretty good use of time so far. The base coat phase was a major slow down but I knew it would be. All that aside, however, I have shaved a ton of time off the process if I had just been doing these things solo. By my count, I've knocked something like 7 or eight days off the time table. Nice!
