Thanks for the comments.  Airfixer... your observations are always appreciated!  I personally liked having a little bit of detail on that tail piece but, for the sake of accuracy, it is a very easy matter to fill in the panel line and rivets to depict the likely wood tail.  Especially since I have not attached the rudder.  On an unrelated note... I really like how you highlight your points graphically!

Wrapping up the transition between the engine cowling and the fuselage.  Added a panel line along the bottom.

I've learned to use magnification to help improve my work, especially these types of close-up photos. They can be brutally revealing but using them to identify and correct flaws results in better work.

The wing root joint has also been cleaned up although it was never bad to begin with.

Say good-bye to the rivets and panel line on the wooden tail!  Thanks for the suggestion, Airfixer!

The slight surface irregularities revealed by the primer will be evened out.

This looks really good. I too find the macro a harsh mistress, but in the end those kind of shot do in fact make for higher quality work.  

 

Model on!
