Trying something a little different this time.

The two different mediums and yellow even though they are primed with Mr. Surfacer may be a problem to paint together with out the need of an overdose of yellow.

Since the yellow on DKM rafts is a rather allusive color(I think I got it right), and yellow is always a troublesome color to paint. I have painted the rafts and PE, then did a cover coat of Tamiya flat clear. After this dries for a few days I will give the netting a try.
More photos to follow.

We will see, the netting is so small, I hope these old eyes can get them on straight.

Here one done after only 20 minutes of playing around to get the netting straight.
