    Nice to see a bit of test fitting going on and it looks to be a good kit. Is the nose antenna moulded plastic or do you have a PE set included in the kit.

    More progress.

    Painting process:
    The first thing I did was to do a pre-shading with Rlm66 (Tamiya XF-63)
    Second, with a mixture of 80% Rlm02 (Gunze H-70) and 20% of Rlm66, i painted all cockpit
    Finally, i painted lights with Rlm02

    Looks very nice Carlos. I might have gone with a darker colour on the instrument panel myself.

    Looks good! I do hope you made sure the top deck insert fits into the fuselage. I had to significantly thin the part and make it a whole lot wider for it to get a good fit. You might be tricked into pressing the fuselage together so it fits, but you'll end up with a canopy that won't fit.

    Hi modelers:

    For the instrument panel, i used the colors in accordance with the instructions. Rlm02, but i'm not sure:confused:

    You're absolutely right, on later i will show the process!


    Thank you for your observations!

    Carlos.
