Your choice of light gray instead of white for the undersides now makes sense. Looking at the relationship between the white star and the underside color on this pic...the values are quite different. Nice choice of colors and an excellent paint job! :clap2:

Anyone noticed my goof?.......not a big deal many may say, but im the one that going to live with it...hell no i wont, and seeing it every day...

 

Te walkway is not straight, ive used the inner panel line as landmark...dont do that, it supposed to be align with the outer folding edge.....yes theese thing drives me nuts....

O

I don't see the goof. Can you circle it or something?

I don't see the goof. Can you circle it or something?

Off course i can, not circle but in lines....when noticed it is annoying....as ive used one inner panel line as reference, and that is wrong, use the edge of the folding as guide and it will be correct...

 

My goof....

Corrected....much much better....not a big deal...but hey im the one that going to live with it....and at this stage better to correct it than ignoring it and redo it later when much more work is done....
