Many thanks one more time, friends. Your comments are a great motivation for me!
Just perfect. Congrats!
Hard to believe it's a 1/72, top skills.
Did not realise it was a 1:72 scale model, until I noticed the description! Brilliant.
A veritable master class. Totally inspiring 🙂

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 🙂 👍

another option for the canopy could be to use bare metal foil or something extremely thin. but i have never tried that myself.
Absolutely amazing amount of work that you invested into this crappy lump of plastic to get this fantastic result so far ! I gave up on it back then and built the fantastic SBS resin kit instead....
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.

Lovely looking aircraft. Superb build!
Wow Cuajete you did a great job. Congratulations on making a beautiful model.
Eye Candy 👍
Thanks a lot for your likes and lovely words, mates.
Very much appreciated.
Thanks again for your likes, friends!
