Łukasz Gliński Folllowing, as this is gonna be a beauty, I'm sure of it already

Julian Herrero aka Yuri Looks good ... keep on the good work .... did you had problems gluing the wins to the fuselage ?
20. January at 11:28:32
Bart Goesaert Looks good so far...

Murad ÖZER Ekki, Lukasz thanks a bunch.

Julian, thank you too. If you have seen Dragan's build on ARC that he praised the kit's fit and overall to be very good. Unfortunately my experience is totally opposite; there is NO joint that didn't require force, swearing, putty and sanding on this build! as for the wings, eventho the sides were flush the underside of wing to fuselage joint was proud on both ends, so yes it was problematic.
What's interesting is that all the problems are manageable with a bit of effort and the result is worth it no matter what :)

Julian Herrero aka Yuri Murad , I've got the very same problem :(
20. January at 12:29:46
Lutz Schramm It looks good - I´ll keep whatching ... which markings do you choose?
20. January at 13:06:18
Marc A. Looking real good... nice build
20. January at 14:43:35
Murad ÖZER Julian, my suggestion for the under side would be to sand until flush, no other way around it unfortunately :( for the rest of the gaps i used CA as filler and sanded wet than rescribed. don't fret about scribing, only a couple of straight panel lines here and there, nothing intricate.

Lutz thank you, it will be the tiger striped one, yellow and brown camo.

Marc thanks a lot.

Michael Phillips Thanks Spanjaard, Maciej, Christian, Ali, Erik, gorby, Christian, Liale, and Stephen! I am overwhelmed with the positive feedback you have all given me on this project.

Maciej, I ended up putting a future coat down on the black area before I decaled, and applied a medium gray wash... Then went back in with the flatcoat. I am happy with the result there.

Ali, the decals are printed by Cartograf, and are fantastic to work with. You will be very happy with their performance.

Holger Kranich Oh what a elegant warbird! You really made a Beauty, Michael!
19. January at 09:19:49
Michael Phillips Thanks David and Holger! I kinda messed up the propeller blade positions, but it was easy to do with the aftermarket props that really had no guide... and I don't know much about propeller planes. LOL

Michael Phillips Primer is on... Got a few spots to work on before I can move to preshading... the canopy fit needs some work, and there are a couple areas I found that need more sanding and smoothing.
