Welcome Łukasz Gliński, this kit is challenging to say the least. There is so much clear plastic that doesn't have any support.

Skywalker, I'm sure that you can.
Good progress,

Whoever designed this kit forgot to put the 12 tiny elves in the box who were supposed to hold everything while I glue it together.

I got the cockpit painted - next on to the engine...

I don't think you want to rebuild the floor ;) It looks ok, not much will be visible anyway. In case you can't live with it (I know that feeling) I propose brush-painting it with a very very thinned dark brown, like I did on my trawlers deck to get a woodish result.

I got the stripe decals on the model but several of them are not like the original livery. Now starts the fine tuning of the ones that are close, the removal of the ones that are off and then I will begin painting new stripes on to correctly match the original livery of the plane.

You are doing WAY more than I would on this. LOL

I see the grey tiger stripes by Revell didn't improve almost a decade after my CF-18 was issued (1993 vs 2000). I had to correct mine too. Keep it up
11. January, 08:52
Cuajete
I hope the same does not happen with the decals on a pair of Revell MLUs that I have.
You are doing a good job .

The canopy on this kit was awful. It didn't fit and was cracked when I opened the box. But since I didn't have any other ideas I used it anyway.

Amazing paintjob

Thank you. For 1:72 it came out pretty good.
26. May 2020, 19:16
Łukasz Gliński
Pretty good? Wish I could do such a nice mottling. Nice build, despite the canopy issue.
27. May 2020, 08:48
Skywalker
I used a 0.2 needle to do the mottling. I think if I had a 0.15 I could have had more control. A new airbrush is on my wishlist.

Very nice painting job. I couldn't see see the canopy ;)
Congrats!
10. January, 20:21

Yeah Revell's canopy for this kit just sucks. Also since this is an older model I imagine I could do a better job now.
10. January, 21:08
Jan Peters
Very nice paint work!
10. January, 21:24

At some point I have to replace the canopy, and antenna wires on this model, then make some proper photos.
10. January, 21:37
Łukasz Gliński
And me naive thought there will be no rigging :(
Canopy is as it is, but I would be very happy having such a mottling on my Schwalbe, let's see.

The illustration for the decals in this kit does not match the decals. Several of the stripes are not like the real plane's livery. I have seen two sets of stripe decals issued for this kit and both have problems with accuracy. The quality of the decals are high however. Note that the values of the grey German flag are wrong. The middle and the lower value should be flipped.

The canopy is bad in this kit and some filing is required to make it work. A replacement canopy may be a good idea.

Not an accurate representation of this plane. I had to do a lot of scratch building on the air intake to make it look like a P-51D. The mold is also ancient and worn out. But in the end with a lot of work it can make a good model.

Looks great, I've always liked this model, actually I like it more that the "real" B-2.
21. October 2020, 11:03

Thanks Jeremy, I think it looks a lot like the early Horten designs that were never produced. But the Hortens never designed anything this big. Jack Northrop made a few this size.

Superb work for such a large surface. This is better than going to the gym :P
18. December 2020, 18:54

Thank you Cuajete. I hope it pays off in the end. I realized that I scratched the bottom surface in a few areas and will have to see what I can do about that next. I also sanded a spot past the paint which could become a major problem at this stage. It's one big adventure.
