Just a quick update. Being a bit busy at the moment with stuff - work, course, volunteer training etc. The build is on the go-slow. On Monday I put the last base coat on the body. You need to give it 2 days to dry out fully anyhow but I'll be unlikely to get to do anything until the weekend now. The neck I've finished the base coats on. So weekend I'll start the top coats on both. I'm expecting 3 or 4 of them we'll see as it develops so probably at least another week or two then the advice is to leave it a full week before assembly.
Patience... it's a bugger at times isn't it!
