You know scribing isn't too bad. It's like rigging...once you get in to the groove, it seems to go pretty fast. I sanded a portion of one half of the fuselage to see the results. I'm using the minis-scriber from UMM, this tool is phenomenal.

Nice start on the panel lines and riveting. I must remember your philosophy for scribing:

Scribing isn't too bad. It's like rigging...once you get in to the groove.

Keep 'em coming

Paulo, it's right there in the pict.

 

 

There's a smaller version offered and I like it because for them most part I'm able to rescribe using the existing raised lines as a guide and I am able to do curves as well -- freehand!
