Parts are painted and drying.

I made a drying hanger for one of the doors that needed repainting.   I wish I had thought of that for all the doors.

Assembly might be a while. I want the paint to be very hard, and I don't have the decals yet anyway.

Colors are rattlecan Krylon cover MAXX Georgia Clay Gloss and Rustoleum Sunburst Yellow.  I used Krylon Gray Primer. This tin would not paint without a primer.

It's possible those two mfrs paints are not compatible or possibly the Yellow needs to cure first.  Maybe a trip through the oven would help? Looks good so far. I am looking forward to the decals!

Yep, that little door is in the oven. The paints need much longer to cure before masking and painting a second color. I have had this problem before. With the yellow, it really needs a week before assembly, unless you can do it gently, which is a big risk. Also, I think the thinner in the rattle cans is a very aggressive solvent. The Naptha I use with my airbrush works much better. I am going to fix this one as best as possible and make a second, learning from my mistakes.
