Nice kit!!!

 

Here is the cockpit. There are NO after-market parts here.

The engine...

The painitng is challenging. I didnt use frisket paper. I simply traced the pattern from the diagram. Then used the traced paper (in cut portions) and sprayed on the body.

The delaying factor for moi on this project is the shortage of close-up pics of the Engine Bay and Engine details. Good thing my fellow club-member "Dustoff" gave some pics of this so I tried my best to put in what I can derive from these pics. I still hope to add more as I go on. Maybe anyone out there can share me some of these pics.

Adding the doors for the engine bay and cabins....

Like a house, the finishing is terribly taking longer than I thought. And as I get more references, I think of adding stuff here and there.

Thanks a million to Dust-off and Fairfax for providing me the pics and references.

I traced it on thin paper (onion skin) then soaked the underside with kerosene (mineral spirits) so that it will kind'a stick to the surface without the brush blowing it away and without harming the Lacquer painted surface coat. I build ships. I use this technique originally there.

 

Hope this helps.
