That was an eye opener. Brilliant use of materials, Paul. I'll be paying attention to this series for more ideas.  Big Smile

Excellent video showing how to accurately kitbash a subject, Paul.  I did notice one little nitpicky detail though.  Is your aircraft going to be a WW2 one or a Korean War subject?  If WW2, the fire extinguishers were brass or bronze in color, not red.  After the war, they were painted red.  I noticed this on your B-17F build a few years back.  This is just like the Spitfire rescue bars in the cockpit.  In WW2 they were natural steel.  After the war they were painted red.

Hi Paul,

Your videos are, very professional.  And techniques I've not seen before - the dental resimix and how you built the fillet around the lower turret.  Some stuff I'l most definitely use.

Thanks for taking the time to create such great videos and then posting.
