    Wow! Looks absolutely awesome. Carl

    I agree. I think the decals have a better chance of being visible than the kit panel. Carl

    Joachim, nice work so far. The nacelle instruments are there, just not mentioned in the instructions. They're part G16. They attach to the inner engine cradle so you have to drill a hole in it from the inside. The nacelles are definitely a fiddly but of work that's for sure. Carl

    That looks really great Chris. I'd almost certainly do the same and use masks versus such large decals on the plane. I like your technique and will have to give it a try. Carl

    Great progress Chris. The multi part rear fuselage is supposed the one of the bigger challenges on the kit. It looks like you have a good handle on it. Carl

    Next up were the prop blades and spinners. The hubs are made up of a number of parts which are somewhat visible upon completion. With a coat of paint on everything: Once I paint the tips of the spinners white, I'll complete their assembly. I generally prefer to use masks for most large markings when available so I did so here.

    I've started working on some of the fiddly bits. I had brass MG barrels but was debating on whether to use them or not. Eventually I decided to swap them.out after seeing Fanes' results. Here's the kit's rear gun: These are the nose guns in the midst of removing the kit barrels. I still need to add the sight to the rear gun and finish off the second pair of nose MGs but it's a start.

    Thanks Ray! Thanks! I'm hopefully getting closer. Thanks Chris! It is easy to overdo things.

    Thanks Shawn! I added a touch of olive drab to the exhaust staining which I think looks better now.

    That looks great! What size styrene did you use for the handles?
  14. That looks great Brian. Nice save on the tail light too. Carl

    Thanks Brian! Here's a quick test fit. Thanks Shawn! Would the same apply to a BoB aircraft as far as exhaust staining goes. You're right the late war aircraft were sooty. Carl
