Intermission – Hand Painting Canopies II

This is where I got this technique for painting canopies.

I have tried it last Wednesday night on the Corsair and Wildcat canopies.

I used my homemade zinc chromate as a base coat. I have added the second base coat Thursday morning after breakfast.

While at it I added the top coat for the Zero canopies.


What a better way to start the day before going shopping with my wife this morning, and to babysit my grandchildren later tonight. I will see if I have to add a second coat. Tomorrow I will use the cocktail toothpick and compare the end result…
