Ya..I know the fix is easy. I do wish I rescribed/re-riveted the model before assembly and I would've, if I've seen this issue earlier as it would be far easier to do this un-assembled.

 

Port side wing, closer to the fuselage as well..as pictured by Doug -- I have that too. Just noticed it.

Is this real or a scale miniature replica? I'm searching for picts online and I just can not say what's what with this sample.

BTW..that molding issue applies to the other side (underdside) of the wings -- just not as noticeable and obviously as visible in comparison.

It's only sort of the real deal, per the Air Force Museum's website "This P-26A reproduction is painted to represent the commander's aircraft of the 19th Pursuit Squadron, 18th Pursuit Group, stationed at Wheeler Field, Hawaii, in 1938".  At one time the museum had a real deal but apparently it was on loan and was returned to its owner.

Some minor work done. Using an old electric toothbrush make sanding putty far more efficient!

Finished up the the seams/molding issues and another coat of primer.... I think I have a problem, the cowling does not fit over the engine when it's glued together!

 

Color coats soon -- now it starts to get fun!

Good save on these molding flaws, Shaka. I keep the idea of the old toothbrush as a micro-sander :goodjob: !

 

I think that yes, you are good for prying apart the cowling and regluing it after you have fit the engine. I'd do all the paiting before, so that in the end you have just a small touch-up to do at the engine cowling seams.

Yes, the assembled cowling does not fit over the assembled engine, nor should it as the actual aircraft is the same.  As Hubert suggests, you can do most of the painting prior to assembling the two parts of the cowl ring, and then attach them together over the engine, or you can do that first, and just mask the engine area.  Either way, you will need to paint the interior of the cowl ring before attaching it.

Apologies for the lack of updates...I have such a bad case of Carpal Tunnel on my right arm that I find it difficult to get any work done.

 

It is getting better -- so I'm glad I don't have to do anything more drastic than what's been proposed to me quite recently!

Well, I Primed/painted the Prop with Vallejo Air Aluminum. I going try and polish the blades to see how shiny it gets.

 

The brace I'm wearing makes detail work difficult, but doesn't interfere with painting single color paints!

After light polishing...I'm impressed with this metallic paint!
