Now that is some serious sanding and filling. Looks great. Those compound curved dome shapes are some of paper's real let downs. Just no way to make them look right without sanding and filling. Great work!

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Thanks, SP.  Definitely worth it in the end.

So I am almost done.  Next shots will be in the finished area.  I got the nose weathered and blended with some pastels, made the wheels and tires, rigged the machine and put on the lower wing root fairings.  There is still some touch up and I even need a joystick and seat belts as well as a windscreen!  Oh...and some blast tubes.  So more than I think, but it is definitely super close.

Excellent result allover... not much different from a plastic kit
Congratulations! and thanks also to Matt77, again!

Very nice work Dan!  She looks lovely. ;D  Is the prop paper?  It really looks good.

Best regards,

Bob

Looks real good Dan. You got that segmented fuselage down pat.
