  1. That's good news Ernie as I grabbed one when Mark posted this. It's funny, this Wingnut fiasco has reignited my desire to build them. Happily working on an Albatross right now.
  2. I do like it a lot. I've wanted to "busy" up the look of my cockpits, but not stear away from the correct colors. I'll be trying this for sure.
  3. I'm quite pleasantly surprised by how well the kit finish looks. Is there any issues masking over it?

    Also, the join in the tail for the B/D or C parts doesnt fit great and creates a fictional panel line. I went ahead and threw some sprue filler over it to get rid of it and I'll reapply rivets later. Got a lot of larger areas drying and I'm frustrated with the flaps so I'll take a little break on this and work on my mosquito for a bit.

    The kit cowl flaps suck. The dont fit in anyway like the real ones and I just couldn't shake how they were sitting. I slept on it last night and came up with a solution this morning. I thinned the kit parts, laid a thin sheet of plasticard over the kit parts and sanded to shape. A little piece on the side to extend the sides up as well makes a much better looking piece. Next I'll work the right side in the same way then I'll see about the lower door.

    I just wasnt happy with the cowl flaps, so at this point might as well go all in. Pulled them off and I'll try and rework them.

    Wings are on. Fill, sand, and prime now in multiple areas over the fuselage.
  8. As I reach a point of letting things dry on and off with the Trojan,I pulled out my next project. I wasnt going to work on it yet, but it kept calling to me. I've got an ambitious goal for it, so we'll see if Ican do it.

    Cowling is together. Tighter than a fully stretched rubber band, but together. Now I'll clean a few joins on the nose then turn my attention to finalizing the wings and attaching them.

    2 minutes and a file and we're all good. MUCH better.

    Yes, very much so. That's how they fit so I assumed it was that way for a reason.

    Cowling is on except for the lower center seam. I'll attack that after everything else dries. A little filler in a few places and some cleanup and it'll be good to go.
  14. I'm thinking something else but still armor.
  15. Loving it Harvey. Your build has been making me contemplate getting my first bit of armour to mix in something new.
