Looking good.  The PE is a nice enhancement.

 

Sincerely,

Looks great so far! :) May I ask why you masked the canopy with tape instead of using the Eduard masks that come with the Big Ed set?

Thanks guys :)

 

Jonas, this is the BIG ED masks, they are cut from masking tape.

Eduard use masking tape like 3M for their masking sets.

Mount the clear parts to the fuselage and putting them - so hate the gaps between clear and grey plastic.

For those guys who will use the ED masks - you must re-shape every one of the masks after masking the round windows for observation with new blade.

Also add more etched parts to the exterior:

And start with rubber black over the wheels and radome, and gloss-black to the engines:

Thanks Jeff :), trust me it is not so easy . . . ;)

 

And the fun part starts - the fuselage and big wing were primed with tamiya grey primer.

After dry, all parts were paint with acrylic aluminium and yellow-green exterior paint:

Thanks Jonas :)

Well the aluminium cover was sealed with several coats of clear varnish.

Next was the heir spray :) and when the camo was ready, some chipping here and there were created :)
