    Hi Nino, great job! (Beginner? Hmmmm).

    Note that there are only 6 mandatory shots and 4 optionals. We can consider the ones from 3 and 9 o'clock positions to be 2 optionals in addition to the 2 you posted.

    Thank you! I thought there are 8 mandatory shots, and 2 optional, sorry. Yeah, those two can be considered as optional! Before I started this model, I sure was a beginner. This is my first 1/48 scale ever, and the best model I ever built. I followed the tips from Osprey's model building manuals and I learned a lot. If you think I should be moved to intermediate level... then that's the best compliment for this model and my effort!
