Update 24 March 12
I really enjoy seeing the final elements of white canvas disappear and I hope to have completed the base aircraft colour tomorrow. There is a fair ammount of detail already but there will be much more before 'finished'.
Today I used a technique never used before: (Do we ever stop learning) in which I used a craftmaster frawing table on a slight tilt, using G clamps carefully positioned on the corner to hold the canvas in place, but here is the new bit; I placed two table top books (Robert Taylors as it happens) under the canvas which gave me a firm canvas that I could lean on without damaging the canvas. It worked a treat:
I usually use a Mabef easel that tilts to the horizontal, but for close up detail, this was a lot easier and enabled me to sit rather then stand.
