    Hi Chuk, I know its been a while but I'm guessing a man as meticulous as you seem to be would keep copious notes on his builds. Would you happen to recollect the paints you used for the exterior camoflauge on this? It think it came out AWESOME! Thanks...for sharing all of your tyalen with us mere mortals! David

    Very nice Jelle! You guys who build airliners always amaze me. Most build a clean aircraft. I think this is the first I've seen posted that has a touch of weathering on it. Looks very convincing. Well done! David

    Very nice indeed! Could you tell me what brand and color paints you used to dress her? The colors look excellent, especially the digital camo. Thanks for sharing!

    Archer, Looks good so far! I am building the same kit myself (still need to start a thread and post pics). Maybe tonight... Anyway, I have already begun to tackle that engine attachment area. Sanding will be a nightmare if you go at it the traditional way. I decided to attack it with chemical sanding instead. I use a blue automotive filler but any plastic putty will suffice. Then I took q-tips and pipe cleaners moistened with Cutex fingernail polish remover and immediately removed the excess, smoothing the fill to the level desired. Be careful you don't let it dry too much or you won't be able to remove it as easily. The Cutex is mild enough so it doesn't mar the plastic but avoid straight acetone. That will craze the styrene. I plan to blend the windscreen to the fuselage using the same method. I still have some touchup sanding to do but the method I've described did a pretty good job of fairing the nacelle fuselage mount into the fuselage. Did the same to fill in the gap between the instrument panel coaming and forward area of the fuselage. Hope this helps. David

    Very glad the video helped you Boats! I forgot to put this in that video but you can type on the same screen after you paste the code for your image. Just hit the Enter key a couple of times and start typing your caption. You can type above where you pasted the picture too. Have fun! Oh, and your homestead looks right fine. Love the lighthouse! and the wharf deck! Where do I tie up Harbor Master? David http://Harvestready.org/
