I'm very interasted in this to put on my cv9040c
Looking forward to see more from it..
My method was to use post-it notes to make templates then glue the netting to these followed by gluing the sheets to the hull. I found deluxe materials glue & glaze worked perfectly for this. Once in place tweezers where used to lift the netting flaps.

Slightly stalled on the build at the moment with real life events but the base has now been built and just awaits painting and finishing off.
