Thanks for watching and comments, Gents :)

 

Still a lot to be done in the cockpit, the rear gunner's seat, backrests of gunner and observer's seats, magazines for the machine guns, few other small details here and there, delicate wash and some dirt - hope this all will be easily visible through the canopy. 

 

Must say, that these Aber and Eduard's etched pieces are essential in this case.  

 

 

Best regards

Hubert

Installed the remaining clear parts.

Except for the ventral rear gunner's position, the fit of clear parts is good. Then I sprayed the frames with the dark khaki colour from Hataka (Orange line) - must say excellen paint, almost odorless and very easy in application. 

This revealed some places that probably still need some attention, but overall I'm quite happy with how it looks like.

 

Now I'm going to spray the primer on and will be ready to start painting.

Very nice work, Hubert! It's disappointing to see the Matchbox-like engraving on the wings, though.

Indeed, this kit is a mixed bag. Seems like the fuselage was made by someone else, not only the panel lines are more delicate, but also the surface is much smoother.

Hope to get the things look better after the Surfacer 1000, which is already drying.

Thinking also about riveting the airframe - this might also reduce the impression that panel lines are out of scale, turning attention away from them ;) Will see.

 

Thanks for watching, best regards

Hubert

Hi, All

 

As I mentioned in my earlier post, decided to add the rivets. Used my RB's tool, which I consider among the best available (tried also Trumpeter's, but it sucks).

Didn't want to overdo the effect, so added only minimal pressure during riveting, so that the lines of rivets are delicate, barely visible, but I think it looks alright in this scale. 

 

Have also preshaded the whole model in preparation for a painting stage, which I hope to start soon.  

Going to use the Hataka's orange line set for Polish WWII and pre-war aircraft.

The rivets really make a huge difference, the somewhat toylike look of the wings is completely gone! Very nice!
