Gonna look nice in those early markings. Technically looks as though it might be a C but I won't tell anyone. :)

Edit (Oh OK just noticed C in your title so you knew. Never mind.)

Got the cowing modified from a D cowling to a C cowling . Cut the two lower cowling flaps of both sides . Then glue the two lower cowling flaps to cowling . Fill in areas with super glue and sand. And bam C cowling flaps complete. Now to get back on the cockpit :)

Nice start. Great colors and weathering in the cockpit. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve had that kit for years and haven’t built it. I’ll be watching with interest.

VERY nice!  I use 30 minute epoxy for lenses, it fills up the bezel and dries level.

They are a lacquer acrylic paint. NO thinning, all you do is shake , pour and airbrush. They have a ton of paint. heres the website hobbyworld-USA.com
