Hi Finally I have some time to post the progress I made from the last time
I cleaned up the seams and now very busy getting everything ready to get some paint on it heres some photos so far.
Here a photo how I closed the holes I used a black marker so it is already black so less trouble to get some black paint in the little corners.

The canopy needed some work the middle part needed to get shorter about 0.8mm and after first paint I will fit the front and back so I can fill the little seams.

The spinner and prop is dry fit so I can paint it separately.

Did drilled the wing light out and fix them later when painting is done.

Nice work so far! Have you add a plastic insert to the front stats?

Hi Johan.

Really great start on this one.

I think I will start an E-1 shortly and your sip will be very interesting for me.

Will take some ideas from yours. Hope you don't mind?

Cheers,

Jamme

Hi thx for the compliments, so i started on the first layer so I get  some idea how to do shade the panel lines.
I did the under side and sides RLM 76 all ready did highlight the panle lines with a darker blue.
I will prepare the panel lines and at last hope to do the special paint work as last.

the photos are not that sharp hope to do beter in a view day's

Hi thx for the compliments.
My first try to this paint effect the camera soort of highlight a lighter color soort of digital effect look at the Yellow much to light is darker in real life.
I have many photo's and the one on the box from aduard show a heavy used airframe the one I hope to get, so this efect of fine motling will get lightly covert with dirt as show in some photo's it looks so much softer.
well here the photo's and tel me what you thing about this sofar.

I like it - how was it done? Fine sponge? It has that look of a battlefield change to a formal paint scheme. Love it.

Hi now the other side is done so far.
How did I do this, first I use the dark color RLM 71 I just use a drop of it and tap the paintbrush in it tap it a few times around the drop so the paint will not stain in one big drop.
It will take some time bud in the end it will cover the hole area hehe.
Now there will be some mistakes so after I have done the RLM71 I get the RLM 76 and becose it so much lighter the paint is thicker so I now try to remove all uneven spots and the result is that like you see on these lates photos is that now the surface is a bit rough so to get that smooth I use fine sandpaper 1000 get a even surface the result is that it will get a bit darker and a more even overall appearence.

Hi thx for the compliments
I took the photos in a hurry so the lighting is a bit to bright but in the middle of putting on the decals need to do this now because I have to weather the decals.
