    Yes, but it is/was a very thin layer.

    Thanks for that. Do you know what the typical practice was for paint below the drive band? Bare metal? Primer? Primer and paint? etc.

    Nearly there. I also got depotman’s fuze adaptor ring which is looking like it has functional threads in the fuze pocket.

    I’m going to put it back in the citric acid for a few more days, but I’m not going to drive myself mad trying to remove every last bit of rust. Any remnants will be neutralised with Kurust before I coat it with filler.

    ...below the driving band also red oxide paint + blue was used.

    More progress. Post acid clean I gave the interior and exterior a coat of Kurust. Then for a little extra authenticity, I painted the interior in red oxide primer. Now onto filling in the pitting on the exterior + finish cleaning the fuze adaptor ring.

    95% of the pitting eliminated in one fell swoop, but it’s always the last few % that takes the longest. (Not to mention the vast quantity of sanding now required...)

    Filler sanded back. From here on it will adding and sanding back layers of paint until the surface is smooth. Quite labourious, but I have yet to think of a clever way of speeding the process up.

    Like so... The trick here is to more dab it on rather than spread it so that it (hopefully) fills the pits. Electrical tape is the ideal tool for masking off a fired drive band as it can partly be moulded around the shapes.

    Ground that back and have now gone on to filler primer spray. Still some way to go though. I’ve also done a test card of the paint I’m intending to use - Revell 56 Matt Blue.
