I did the exact same method when I built mine.

It is time consuming, but what I would say is you donít need to be too fussy in tidying up the lozenge as once you overpaint it pretty much disappears and you are just left with a faint outline of what went before.

Outstanding work on the masking and painting of the lozenge! Your interior is stunning.

Thatís good to know! Yes, I am counting on that for the fuselage sides and top: just enough to know itís there without having to repeat what I did on the bottom. In fact, I have cut out a series of lozenge shaped holes in masking tape and am now placing and spraying each individually. As I mentioned, I am painting only the colors that are lighter and darker than the Prussian blue overspray as a shortcut.

There are acrylic drying retarders available. Not sure if they will work with acrylic oils. A knowledgeable art supply store can tell you the correct product to use.

That might be worth a try. My workaround has been to work fast with a broad brush!
