Putty In The Buff

Though it is unclear at this time how many puns I can get out of the "buff" primer I am using, I'm hoping for at least one more.

Yesterday was pretty productive, if not a long day. I did my first pass of putty over the primer, isolating places that were most critically in need of help. This included holes, deep scratches, and a bit of sculpting in missing details.

Here's some work I was doing on the back fin.

This is one of the more severely troubled spots, as the lip around that intake is a big mess. Lots of clean up and sculpting to do here.

Here's a bit of a broader shot.

The next step of course is sanding all that putty down. Oh joy.

Do you remember when your garage used to be clean?
