Phwoarrr Brad, awesome precision at any level - not to mention using home cut masks! I'm impressed.

Thanks Jim. My little 10 dollar compass cutter has come in mighty handy over the years.

Under carriage and prop are now on. I'm not entirely happy with how the gear legs and doors sit, the right one has a little twist in it and the under carriage doors I found didn't fit well. I ended up cutting them down a little to fit. They look ok, not perfect but I can live with it. I'll just put it on the middle shelf in the cabinet so I don't see the gear that much lol.

A quick gloss coat and the star decals applied. I think they are little small, but they don't look very large in the pictures I've seen, so they'll look fine. Just waiting for the future to dry on them then it's onto the weathering.

Looking great. A very unique set of markings for an aircraft you do not see built often, will definitely stand out in the crowd.

I am indeed. It was also a rather expensive kit for me to buy at the time as well, as our dollar was at a low against the US dollar, so it cost me over 100 bucks. Far too much to bin or have sitting on the SoD.

I picked one of these up for a relative song at the US NATs back in July. Other than you average short run kit issues, it seems like a really nice kit.
