After the little mishap with the primer, after cleaning it all off, the Hawk received a couple of coats of Humbrol matt black enamel. This was just as good as any primer and it gives a great basecoat for the Xtracrylix Night Black. So the Humbrol paint has had overnight to dry and it looks okay. Onwards tonight with the Night Black, a few light coats to see how it looks and if it's okay, a bit more masking to paint the undercarriage bays.
So here is a photo of the Hawk after the matt black had dried.
