Nice!

 

Gil, do those red stripes continue under the elevators or are they just on the upper surfaces? Did any of the silver get pulled up afterward?

 

Love the scheme.

Yes, there are stripes on the bottom of the tail surfaces too. This wasn't any harder, just added time to the masking job.

 

No, I've haven't had any of the silver pull up anywhere! The fuselage is the AK Aluminum while the wings are Alclad 101 aluminum, and both have handled multiple masking jobs without a single problem.

 

I'm probably going to build a NMF P-36 next, just to further test the AK metallic paint over bare plastic, but thus far it seems to be my new "go to" NMF paint!

Also got the flaps and drop tanks done...

Plumbed the tanks with solder, using black tubing (slid over the solder) for the connectors.

Vacuform! Seriously, vacuform?

 

I wouldn't even attempt it. Your results are impressive.
