Thanks guys


More progress , weathering is done with it's seal coat of Testors clear flat lacquer and rest of the wing parts fixed in place . The red scoop didn't fit very well . A fare bit of body work is needed before the painting stage .

Finished off the detail painting last night and is now dry and ready for the weathering stage . I used various metal shades for the piping and fittings to break up the uniforum shade of just alum .

Thanks guys ! This weekend was awesome ! Spent the whole time in front of the bench losing track of time . Felt great !

Detailing in the wells are done . Now I can move on to the painting stage and get the rest of the wing parts prep and ready to go .

Outstanding detailing. Once painted and weathered, one would be hard pressed to tell the difference in side by side photographs of your wells and the real deal.

Thanks a lot guys for the kind comments and following along

Now that the festival season is over , well for me it is and things go back to be normal with bench time involved . Was able to get a fair bit done and not much left and this part will be done . Then I can start the painting and weathering before the other wing half is fixed in place . The thicker oil/coolant line isn't glued in place . I just but it in place for the photo. A few more lines need be added before it's fixed in place for good .

Terri,
That wheel well is simply amazing.

As for a punch set, I bought mine from UMM-USA. a little expensive, but 100% top quality that has stood the test of time by a long shot.
