So I've started next plane from Battle of Midway. I've baught rathr old kit from Hasegawa, but it seems really good. I've used Eduard's photo etches to improve the poor cockpit and I'm also planning to replace air brakes and landing flaps.

Nice, I'll take a seat. I don't think there is a better/newer kit of the Dauntless than this. Or is there?
2. February, 19:13
David Januska
Alec you are right. I'm suprised that all newer kits has the same origin from this Hasegawa tooling.

Thank you Cuajete. Spend last week on dive breaks. I hope I will not ruin them at the end.

So I hope finish is close, I'll try to add some weathering but I hope I'll not ruin it.

On picture 16 it looks almost black. Guess it is navy blue or intermediate blue. Could you try a different background colour ? The blue mat is perfect for the underside pictures.

David Januska
Olivier, yes you are right. I've used AK Interactive RC 257 Sea Blue. And you are right second time, I'm not good and patient photographer. Another skill I'm missing :(. Next time I'll try to improve. I am just using my cell phone in a dark room.
