    Great looking winter finish Geo! FWIW... the pictures on my monitor, color-balance wise, look a tad off. The white finish has a slightly yellowish tint.

    Thanks very much guys...
    The antenna wire almost did me in. 2lb. test fishing line isn't very friendly and with the dainty mast, it was almost 1 hour of frustration

    The cowling is a heavy wash of white over yellow. There is some debate whether yellow was used on the wing tips tops; I've seen one with in the fall of '41, so I used an even heavier wash to all but eliminate it. These might contribute to the yellowish tint you see.
