I did modify the front of the cowling as I thot it looked off somehow. Have fun, it'll look nice in the end. :thumbsup::popcorn:

 

Here's Steve's pic from above ...

Hello Mike

 yes thar's what I noticed first as I didn't recognize the Trumpy front ring cowl.

Did you modify the existing one? or redo a complete new one?

I'm a bit surprise as it doesn't exist a corrected one?

Hi Rafju, I modified the kit part. The part that looked off was the top center front.

I built up some Apoxie Sculpt to the inside in case I went thru but it ended up I didn't.

Then I just sanded away, first the profile elevation, then blended the sides in after.

I used a decent profile like the one below...

 

...this is the area I removed material ...

I added a strip of styrene around the lip as I thot the kit lip was too sharp. Then I radiused it smooth.

 

Here's a decent profile elevation ...

It's Ok, interesting to see Mike's modification to the cowl ring. I can live with it as is. On another note the carpet monster seams to have stollen the tail wheel little so and so!!!!!

Looking good, I'm late to the party as usual, I have one of these kits in the stash, I must have fancied the pugnacious looks as I usually only build WW2 subjects, so will be taking notes as I have not seen another build of this kit.

 

Cheers

Welcome along Dennis although it may be short from her.
