I know 😄 The thing is, the dirty rivets look almost the same as holes 😉
Loganair on the other hand washed the Barra planes after every flight to remove salt, so I decided to skip the imitation of dirty riveting, thanks for your say folks 👍

So, I added all the missing bits and pieces (some inlets, outlets and aerials). Taking break for 2 weeks and then it will be time for painting. I'm leaning towards less orthodox approach - first the dark colours (less masking) and then white overall. Still haven't decided whether to assemble the wings before or afterwards.

Interesting version! I'm guessing a weather sampling aircraft?

Now I have to start one of them at least😉

I was once a passenger on one of these, we flew from Los Vegas to a dirt strip near the Grand Canyon. Once the aircraft got near the canyon we hit thermals for the rest of the fight. The plane went up one down and sideways, every direction but straight and level. I love to fly, doesn't matter white size or kind of aircraft. The happiest I have been while flying was when I saw but when that tiny dirty road in the middle of nowhere they where planning on landing on. When we got off the aircraft I overheard 3 of duty American Airline flight attendants say that was the worst flight they had ever been on. Lol

Welcome again. Started working on the cockpit using the Aerocraft set.

Wow, what went wrong? Asking as I'm going to start mine one day.

Mostly my fault type problems, first one I used the wrong landing gear fairings for the version I wanted to build (watch that, the instructions aren't really clear)I tossed the kit but saved some parts. On the second one I built, the wings were warped (like helicopter blades, to be honest all these kits have the problem but I missed it until the wings were built. I trashed the kit. The third kit was going along ok until I tried to fix the engine nacelles where they join the wing (very poor fit) I sanded them smooth but ended up with banana shaped engines...tossed the kit as well. This kit, I put brass spars in the wings, used pics of the prototype to locate and build the landing gear fairings, used wings and engines from this and previous kits to get good engine fits. I also narrowed the windshield "a" pillars which if left alone appear too wide. I had to make my own windshield because narrowing the pillars makes the kit windshield too small to fit, I also added two cabin side windows (1 each side) built a full interior and added weight to the nose (otherwise it tips back unrealistically on the floats)
Looking at all this I guess I did quite a bit to it...

Oh yes, the wing stall fences...too thick and too far inboard.

That's an impressive list. I have some add-ons, like undercarriage fairings and new cockpit - let's see if they help. Will use your info for reference for sure 👍 Thx
