Robert, Spanjaard and Hanno... Many thanks for your lovely words. And thanks to the rest mates for the likes 🙂
I would have liked to buy the SBS kit, but it seems to me to be quite expensive, so I bought the KP kit instead, but I have seen that it has flaws starting with the horrible shape of the canopy.
You are welcome, Cuajete... You can always try strips of decal. Techmod offers sheets of blank decal that can be printed on a laser printer and then given two coats of transparent lacquer, or simply painted with appropriate paint (I tried laser printing and also painting with Tamiya sprays and it works with some attention). Also, there are sheets with strips of decals of different width and colours offered. Tedious work, nevertheless... But, presumably, you are not afraid of such tasks🙂
Many thanks for your help, Robert.
I considered the option of using the decal strips method, but I am not achieving good results with the vacuformed as I do not have a good base to work with. I am considering the option of vacuum forming the KP's kit canopy to leave it open, even if it is not accurate.
Este avión tan atractivo se merece todo el curro que le estas echando. Lástima que solo exista en plástico (al menos que yo sepa) el modelo de Airfix/Kp con un molde tan antiguo y con tan poco detalle.
Hola Amenofys. Existen otros moldes antiguos del Comet en plástico como este de Airfix. Por ejemplo el molde de Frog. El más reciente en plástico es el de KP, pero el canopy está mal diseñado. También hay un kit muy bueno en resina de SBS Model, pero es muy caro.
Muchas gracias por tu comentario 🙂

Did not realise it was a 1:72 scale model, until I noticed the description! Brilliant.
A veritable master class. Totally inspiring 🙂
Wow... Many thanks for your words, my friends. Are much appreciated, but I think I don't deserve them 🙂
Just great! The amount of detail you put on such a small scale, all you 1/72ers, blows my mind!
Thank you so much, Giannis. This one just has a few little extras.
I built a Do-24 with a lot more extra details. You can see it here, 🙂

Like it !
Me 2. The fuselage and wings look like made of soap, not styrene😉
Taking a seat. Looks like a pretty difficult kit. Good job so far!
Many thanks for your kind comments, mates. Welcome.
Łukasz, this plastic is much worse than modeling with a bar of soap.
David, this is a very difficult kit. Plastic quality is very hard to hand. At the beginning I cut a finger trying to work one of the pieces. Fit are very poor and so far I have had to use a lot of putty. But despite all this, I hope the work is finally worth it.
Unfortunately all my attention is now on finishing the Dornier Do-24, but as soon as I finish it, I will continue get to work with this U-2
Thanks for your likes, mates 🙂 👍
