Default Swiss A319

Here is my second attempt at a custom 1/400 model.
As I could not wait any longer for a manufacture to produce a Swiss International Airlines A319, I decided to do it my self. A donor Air Canada Dragon model was purchased, titles and tail logo and a couple of others were removed and tail was painted over. I was the first time I had used acrylic paints and was pleased how easy they were to clean up, but was not to happy at the results. I only had to repaint the tail from the base coat green to white and put a dash of red in, but I found they were not very smooth like enamels I had used in the past. It kept leaving small ridges and stroke marks, which i tried to sand down but would return with another coat. Maybe it was the cheap acrylic's I was using. I would love to get your thoughts.

Thank you ModelmanGB. Nice work Ben. I probably should have just done what you had done & got the GJ version. Then I would have just had to remove the windows, re decal them & just put new titles on.
