I just stumbled on the build thread last night and finished it this morning, which led me here. Looks great, I have the 1C version begging to be built and this thread makes me want to start it even more.

Thank you!!! :)

Looks great, did you use any Eduard on this one?

I am getting ready to start mine and have the Eduard interior set.

No Eduard stuff Mike. Just the Black Box/Avionics parts. :)

Love this.  Ive thought about getting this kit so many times and builds like this are the reason why.

John, back I come to this and here I stay for awhile, soaking it all in.

One thing. Be very, very careful of that Alclad clear. I’ve used it on occasion, and it never, ever really dries. After 4 years, my Gotha is STILL tacky and will show fingerprints.

On the advice of Brian (Outgtcha) in the other site,  I switched to MM lacquers, and they are absolutely idiot proof, so I’m safe.

I'm glad you like the TBM build Ernie. I've used the Alclad Kleer Flat, Semi-flat and gloss for years and never had a problem. Lucky I guess! :)
