    The cowl is primed. This photo is under strong light.

    Although is far from perfect I believe it is a decent first try. Thank you guys for the guidance and suggestions!!

    Well, the cowl is almost finished. Overall, I am quite happy with the result.

    Of course there are some imperfections such us some yellow spots on the black cockpit glass. I am planning to spray some black paint in a bowl and paint them carefully with a paint brush.
    The same technique I m gonna follow for the line between the colors as Dirk Jan did in his T800 hull.

    Wow, looks great Dim! Neat work on the paint job.

    I did some corrections as you described: paint some spray paint in the cap of the can and with a brush, correct some spots. It is only visible from closeby:

    Thank you Jan!! Great, so the method has been tested!! ;)
    I think that is almost impossible to build or paint something by hand with no imperfections, but at the same time this is the beauty of rc building: trying to figure out how you can make your build better and better.

    I don t know if you buy from tfl-hobby.de (you probably do) but the owner of the business says that he is gonna be hospitalized for two weeks with unknown time of recovery (!!! so sorry for him) and he will no deliver products after 21/10/2021.

    So if you have planned some purchases from tfl-habby.de, you would better order until 21/10.
    I ordered the metal-teflon bearings for the end of the flex shaft, as the experienced users of the TFL small outboard suggested, and two spare flex shafts just in case.
