WoW, absolute knockout!!!  Love red and black combo.  The lettering on the wing is fantastic!  Well done! Smiley

I still have to paint the spats and add the panel and control surface lines. The model has been given a coat of semi-gloss clear coat that did not play well with the Sharpie poster paint pinstripes. Lots of touch up to do but it could have been worse.

Here are a couple of paint production shots..

I have fitted the wing struts but they wont be glued into place until after the painting is done.
The canopy has been masked and attached...
Thank you for the kind encouragement

attached the wing outer panels today..also installed the wing strut support pylons and got them shaped and sanded.

laid some putty / filler onto the wing joints and should be able to get those cleaned up later today.

Still a very long way to go. I need to make the propeller, finish cleaning up the wing struts, continue cleaning up the cowling, get the pilot installed and the canopy masked and installed...then I can start thinking about the paint process.

lots of overall work to do yet before any color can go on

Great progress and another bookmarked build for future inspiration. Looking forward to the color going on.

getting closer to the real challenge (as challenging as this project has already been) - the paint scheme...

here it is with the canopy trimmed to fit and the cowling pinned on temporarily -

the engine is done and buttoned up in the cowl, I just need to clean up the joint between plastic and balsa.
the spats are sanded and ready and I have the wing strut footings in place on the fuselage.
