Do you do the general painting AFTER you've assembled/rigged? Your presentation made it look as if you might, which strikes me as a challenge! Great tip about the paint to get super glue off- I assume the paint comes off, taking the super glue with it? Oops, that's two questions.

Bob, You are right. If you prepaint then rig, when you cut the excess rigging off it does take a spot of paint off. This is much easier to feather the edges for painting than trying to remove the superglue from bare plastic.

On some models I will paint the underside of the top wing and upper surface of the bottom wing then rig the model. On the Halberstadt I used in the news letter I painted the model after I was finished rigging. Since the model was a dark grey I just painted the rigging to.

Hope this made sense.

Not only your explanation, but your plan of attack made sense. Still, I'd be nervous trying to paint in-between the wings!

p.s. I like the PV-1 turret-cover idea- might have to take you up on that one. (And for you "do it yourselfers", yeah, I know I could, but for $5 I'd be tempted to let Mike do it for me.)
