Built mostly OOB so far, with seatbelts from lead foil with Eduard hardware, a modified spinner mount, wire brake lines, brass strip tank strap, and brass tube wing cannons.
I also modified the ETC rack fairing, opening up the lightening holes and adding some inner details.
All built up, waiting for paint
I also shaved off the front of the supercharger intake, and replaced it with a hand machined piece of tubing to get a perfectly round profile
As this aircraft will be heavily over-sprayed with dark gray and black, I didn't worry too much about getting the factory paint perfect. As long as it was close, I am OK with it. A coat of gloss to protect things
Next up, cutting some cross stencils to paint the upper wing, fuselage and tail bits. Then, the fun begins! Really looking forward to the later paint stages!
