    Having just built on in 1/48, I'm impressed. So what material is it that you have use for the rudder pedal foot straps.

    Looking very good. Some of nice work has been done so far. :thumbright: But one note only. If you added these wing ribs at the wing top , it should have been done to undersides as well.
