Been busy all over the place here...

Got the pit in the fuselage and closed it all up.. Always have a problem with the lower hull of the fuselage on this kit. I can never quite get the section in arrows to seal correctly.

I had to sand and file and contour and then Mr. Sufacer 500 to fill the slight gap. Mr. Sufacer 1500 to prime and the3n go back over with a 1000 grit sanding board.

Starting to paint invasion stripes on the wings. Laying down the over all white. Plane on flaps down but I taped them in the up position to paint as the section in the flap well should be NMF.
