  5. BTW. Thank you guys for the interest and nice comments (Greg, you da man.) Back to the progress. One more pic on the wings. The grooves where the pylons are to be placed are in wrong position so I had to fill the grooves and drill holes to place the pylons where they are to be.
  6. Hello Karl, Nice to hear from you. Light curing putty? I actually use Mr. Hobby's Mr. White Putty. Can't say it works good. After having dried it sometimes tends to peal off.

Alexander p.s. Please, give me a clue how to move the cursor below the images field to type below them.
