Fantastic work so far Mark, really like it!  We don't see enough plank wing Thunderjets, and idea which markings you are going to put on her?

Absolutely Marvelous Mark

 

 Great kit to start with......just watchout around the intake, it can be tricky. There should be a panel line around the nose that you have to scribe, look at where

the nose marking ends in front of the gun troughs.

I cut a piece o foil about 10x10 cm and placed it in the palm of my hand and pushed the intake into the foil and twisted it around

until I had a good representation of the intake. Trim the foil close around the outside and X cut the inside to allow you to work the foil into the intake.

It's not as difficult as it sound's, bit it might take a couple of tries. 

 

 You are off to a GREAT start

 I have one of these in the RFI from a couple of months ago...  http://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/article.php?aid=1821

It looks like somebody has been reading the How To Foil Book.  Your study has paid off.  That's excellent foil work.  I can't wait to see the finished product.
