I have not built an Eduard in a while if ever and have to say this is a saaweeeet Kit! The fit is just about perfect filler was a minimum on one wing root only.The kit supplied the PE to build up the pit though being a Spit not alot to see but I did use for the first time the SG with the light worked great for the bezels.I have been back with my MM enamels of late having found that MR.Color Leveling thinner for lacquers works Frigg'in excellente allowing me to thin to a 60/70 ratio of thinner and get a good application and is reviving some of the ole paints.The camo was all applied @17psi with the draw back on the trigger set to very light spray.The camo was drawn out with a pencil one at a time hitting the pencil line 2X and filling in the area it took me about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to paint the whole plane,the airbrush never stops moving in various patterns.I started the build last Monday after shelving it for sometime lack of interest but I think it's time to clean up those off the SOD.I am thinking the Intermediate Blue is to blue for the Ocean Grey mine was to far gone to bring back but also the flash is not helping looks better in person. ;)
