Very cool Cole, best of luck with the process. I am really looking forward to seeing what's coming next.

Nice masking, Cole. Are all those placed individually?

The interior is fantastic, I especially love the wicker seat. And the masking for the wings looks like eyestrain and retinal afterimages on the wholesale scale, lol. Looking forward to what comes next

Wicker seat and interior make this one fine small scale model. Re: taping off squares, what's your method in how much to press down the tape to prevent bleeding under? How sticky is the tape?

The engine such as it is. Not much will be visible after assembly. The wings and tail have been masked and will be painted tomorrow.

Nice work Cole, are there not decals available for the pattern, although greater satisfaction in painting it.

Though it may be sparse what there is of the engine looks good!

Thanks everyone.
Mike and Harron: The masks were all placed individually. I simply pressed each square in place after placing it. Then I let it sit for a day before painting. The base coat is white, the top coat red. Some modellers apply a clear coat before applying the top coat. In this instance, I did not. The Eduard tape is quite sticky. When applying the red top coat I sprayed multiple light coats. My reasoning is that will allow the paint to dry quickly between coats and minimize bleed-through. Also, the Eduard instructions provided an excellent starting point for placing the masks.

Gary: I had no idea that decals may be available! For me personally, the masking job truly makes this a pastime, one that I enjoyed.

As for the results, you be the judge. But even after all this, I still made two glaring errors, which I will correct forthwith.

Cole, I thought that you may prefer to mask and paint, much more creative satisfaction.
A superb result and Im enjoying this coming together.

Great job, Cole. The painted look is much better than decals, in that there's no 'see-through' as seen with most decals.

Really crisp lines on the squares. Thanx for the advice on spraying light coats. It also prevents paint buildup along tape edges and makes removing tape easier. Truly a beautiful paint job on a superb small scale (and thereby more challenging) model. She is something!

Very nicely done Cole, the roundels make more of a difference than you'd think.

Thanks everyone. I hadn't paid attention till now, but the manner in which the lower wing is joined to the fuselage seems rather unique. The first attachment points were aligned without any trouble. Now it's time to start painting the fuselage.
