OK now that’s a nice build! The final paint is outstanding and weathering is nice and subtle. A job well done! Beer

Thanks Smeosky, and thanks for the heads up. I'll be getting to adding the upper win soon so will look out for that.

Looking good, Bish. I am a little further along than you on the Hase Dora. I don't want to cast any gloomy shadows but my fun seemed to end once I joined the wings to the fuselage. The fit was pretty c rummy and i've spent the better part of a month filling and sanding everything in and the rescribing. I won't get into the noodling I committed to re scribing. Nevertheless I am out of the woods and primed it yesterday (ill send current photo soon). Looking forward to seeing yours witht he gun bays visible!

MM, the belts are as they come. They are fiddly to put together, but i think worth it.

Really liking how that 262 is coming along.

Bish - I love those belts. Did you have to apply anything to acheive that look or were they installed as-is?

 

Crown - Love the camo on your 335.

 

A quick 262 update.  All glass has been masked with Tamiya tape and Vallejo liquid mask. It’s been primered and the bits painted.  She’s ready for final paint.

I've been slacking on building and checking all the forums here and there's been a lot of good work here.

Been able to get quite a bit done on the 190 since my last update. Got the pit finished off, includeing HGW seat belts. I removed the back piece as i decided to fit the pit after the fuselage halves were together and this was easier without it. Also missing is the throttle which kept coming off so i'll ad that after the pit is fitted.

And with the fuselage together and pit in, the lower wings and tail were added. The wings took some work to get in place but fit nicely. The join between the tail and fuselage did need some filler.

The upper wings have been left off until the wing guns have been fitted. I had hoped i could do this later, but they won't go in with the uper wings fitted without some contortions and i didn't want to risk breaking them.

Thanks for looking, more to follow.

For the fuel lines I could not find thin enough solreswire so I used some silver coloured streched sprue. Gives a nice coroded /weatherd alluminium look .

Ta, the headrest looked to "plastic" so I stained it with watercolours to look like leather.

seat pan was shafed using hairspray tecnique, I used some left over PE buckles and tamiya tape for the seatbelts. The looked to "flat" so I added some shading with water colours.

Glad that worked out for you.  Was hesitant to suggest anything other than water because some people dip their canopies in clear acrylic.

Actually, Jack, I used a q-tip soaked with isopropyl alcohol, and that worked really well.
