somehow this one slipped by me, despite it's size! Looks great Chris! I'd run out of interest about 25% into such a monster kit, so not one for me, but I do enjoy watching this come together!

Thanks for stopping by, it is tough staying on topic on such a large project. Looking at other builds (much better than mine) I see others have no trouble staying on task.

 

As well...apparently I suck at posting updates, here's where I'm at as of today

Thanks for looking

engines attached to mounts, exhaust stacks added. If exposing the engines (maybe) they'd need a lot more plumbing and wiring.

stacks from the second cylinder back added for weathering

radiators added, I was tempted to go with aluminum color but figured these things probably had copper radiators...?

Still plugging away, at least thats what I'm calling it.

3 bottles of Tamiya NATO black lacquer (I ran out and had to go get more) and the wing and fuselage bottoms are covered. 

back to acrylics for the top colors, homemade mix for the dark earth.

Thanks!

still splashing paint, using my tried and true(ish) method of wetting paper shapes as masks and painting over them (at low pressure) I've got some RAF dark green on the model

I used paper from my wife's trash can here;

I used painters tape on the fuselage...too curvy for paper.
