Hi to all the HS Friends that follow this model projec of mine .

I started the paint-work with the starboard wing that's the most complicated from the painting point of view .
Here is some white preshading on the light gray base for the black wing - I admit that was only 40% confident about the outcome .





After a careful exame of Bruce R. video file I got via Michael K. I decided the long aerials at the wing-tip and fin-tip looked wrong and very fragile, so I replaced them with copper micro-tube and hypodermic needles sections nested one into the other - much stronger and realistic !!!!

Here is the final outcome











Any comment/critique/suggestion very wellcome and appreciated as usual, I'm indebted with several HS Friends for their assistance

That's all for to-night !!!!!

That livery on the fuselage from the first photos looked so great! Why you had to pull it off?

Seriously, this one is looking sharp! Keep updating

Cheers!
