  6. The edging was rolled "Blue Tak" putty and filled in with tape to avoid overspray. I felt in this scale the edges should lean toward the harder side. In the process of decals underneath first to test the decals and sludge-wash for some of the great panel details. Photos later. Thanks for Asking
