Chaz Gordon Love the undercarriage protection device. Looking good so far.

Chaz Gordon Very nice. If you're finding issues with Microsol, I've had no issues at all with Vallejo clears or colours. Although I don't gloss under decals if I'm using Microset, I apply decals over whatever the second varnish coat happens to be
Sparky Rogers Thanks Ben. I'm pleased with how it turned out. It was my first time using Ammo Mig Glossy Lucky Varnish and I don't rate it at all. It made doing the panel lines difficult.
R VG it's a great kit. Fantastic interior details too. The propeller assemblies aren't glued together. In theory you can take the props and hubs apart as there's lots of detail in those too. There are some details that Trumpeter got wrong but they're easily fixable.
Thanks Roland. A very interesting model indeed!

Łukasz Gliński That's a nice one, but deserves a better background for sure
Ben M Would you recommend the maskol technique? I guess it's easier than using tape but you have to smooth out the edges after?9

Sparky Rogers I found it a pain in the backside tbh. I may as well have done it free hand for all the time it took to correct the edges after I peeled the maskol off. Others might have had better experiences with it though

Ben M Thank you for sharing your experience, that's pretty much what it looked like from the pictures.
