 +Painted the bulk of the exterior red armour parts, including pre-shading and panel lining. Had a really awkward time with the Vallejo red paint - despite thinning it down it jammed every minute or two; I've not had that problem with anything else unless it wasn't thinned or I was trying to put it on too thick, which I wasn't here. Since I have other //Char Aznable// red-coloured models waiting in my build queue I need to get a working red colour sorted!
 +
 +Started to assemble the main torso section. Most parts now fully painted; thrusters and jet parts need painting - am going to try some enamel paints //Mig Ammo Extreme Metal//. That will be a good test of my abilities, since I've never sprayed enamel before.

 +== [2019/11/05] ==
 +Started assembly of all the sub-components. I'm **really** liking the way this model is coming together. All of the decals still need applying, as well as weathering effects applying, but even without those, I'm very, very pleased with the design. With just a small amount of extra effort it's starting to look like a stunning kit; far better than the 2 or 3 colours of the out-of-box colour scheme.

 +So, it seems that it's about the end of the world right now (COVID-19 pandemic), and I took the opportunity to start applying the waterslide decals.
