The canopy masks are on their way so I am working on the engine until it gets here. I also have the camouflage scheme masks so I can test those out.

The engines are almost complete. I plan on painting them separately from the aircraft for ease of painting.

The upper section of the turret needs very careful separating from the sprue as the plastic is VERY brittle.

I finally received the Eduard canopy masks and applied those so I could paint the model. The AML camouflage pattern masks are the wrong pattern, they are the 'B' pattern' so I photo copied them and reversed them on to the model giving the 'A' scheme. I was not overly impressed with the lack of map for the various masks as some of them were quite hard to work out where they go.

Thanks. If I get another one I wouldn't mind doing one in FAA colours. Where did you get them from?

The paint job is done as is the base weathering of a dark wash in the panel lines. It now needs to have the small bits added, a matt varnish then the last bit of weathering. The matt varnish should lighten up the paint nicely to make it look much better.
