Thanks.

 

Christmas long weekend was very productive

-painted wings in yellow, firstly I used Hataka paint for Early US planes colors, but I didn't like how it looks (used half of bottle and it was not too bright)

so I repainted everything with Mr.Hobby RLM 04

 

Here, on left, you can see Mr.Hobby and on right - Hataka

I like it very much, even though its an American plane, but it looks so Ukrainian )))

Thank you, I really try to do my best on every single model. And not just in models, but in life in general, I believe that if you do not, than what's the point even to start...

 

 

Meanwhile, small update with the build:

- kit offers to use decals for a rudder, but I decided to paint it

- drilled some holes and added wires, I know they should be a bit thicker, but I do not have such a wire, sorry

(a perfectionist inside me screams :blowup:)

- Roden is one of the companies that gained during this lock-downs and pandemic, they finally managed to make an awesome decals.

In this kit they are thing, do not brake, even without using Set/Sol look good
