My sole can of heirloom white came to a mournful end the other day as I was painting the flak cannon. It’s little German attendants went embarrassingly free of paint for quite some time. I havent been able to find another can of rustoleum heirloom white anywhere in town. The Lowes I bought it at redesigned their paint department and decided that my particular color of white was superfluous to their stock. I gave up after searching every hardware store in town. The only alternative I found was a can of Valspar. Its a pretty close match in color. Aargh! After the first spray coat I noticed it is much glossier than its predecessor. F! I’ll have to hit it with some mat medium after it dries.
I’ve decided to add a bit of a dog fight as well to truly give the P-38 a run for its money. It will go up against two Japanese Zeros. There is a bit of historical fallacy here, but hey, it’s just a movie. Why would there be Japanese Zeros flying over Germany, or why would there be a German flak canon in Japan? Who the hell knows?
