    Wojtek,

    I've been waiting to do this for the end of my model, but I really can't wait.

    From the beginning of my model up until now, you have taught me so much. I have probably learned more in 1 1/2 months than I would've if I were on my own! Taking your time really means a lot to me. I know you have a family, job, and other things going on but I really, really appreciate your help with my P-40. Especially this being my first painted aircraft model it is really meaningful.

    I hope you don't mind taking tons of your own time to work with me so far!

    Many many thanks!


    P.S Any other person who helped/or commented it means a lot !!! So thanks to you guys too!

    Thank you very much Gentemen but it makes me a little bit of :oops:. But it is very kind of you.

    Sorry Harry I have disappeared for some time but I was forced to take care of a few chores here at home without accessing the net..
    Of course I would be happy if we could continue the P-40 build, especially the painting time is comming up.

    Once again Thank you so much.

    One thing I've always wondered...do you paint parts as you go (such as interior cockpit details, bomb-bays, engines, landing-gear wells, etc) or just save everything for post-gluing -painting stage?

    Depends on the part. I usually paint hard to reach areas such as cockpits and interior fuselage areas first, then glue and proceed. I kinda fit pieces first and see whats needed.

    Harrison is not the only one that Wojtek has taken the time to assist. He helped me with the FW-190, the bf-109, the
    Stuka and now, the Rufe. We talk, via PM, just about daily. He is always ready willing to help anyone.
