Looking very good Mark. Just bought some Mr Hobby white myself. Still on the learning curve, but it works much better than the AK stuff I was using before :thumb2:

A little bit more done,the lower part of the cabin has been painted blue and the deck ive brush painted in vallejo neutral grey,close enough. Next job i think will be some detail painting, window frames and a few other bits then the decals can go on before i get to fit all the fragile bits, handrails,antenna etc.20230113_232313.jpg20230113_232609.jpg20230113_232437.jpg

Hi Mark, just had a read through and you have done a great job on what appears to be a pretty tricky kit to assemble. The painting is crisp as well as colorful. Keep up the good work. :thumb2:

She's looking fantastic! I've had some kits that have taken almost their own weight in bondo/filler and it certainly can be a pain, but for some reason I enjoy it, to a point... LOL
Nice work and I applaud you!

Awesome Kit! I am super excited to follow this build, as it's another kit I've been wanting to get my hands on at some point!
I look forward to seeing what you do with it, and how it builds up.
