The planking should look great! Are you doing something to make sure the tape stays secured to the Hull?

Wonderful work as usual, pustota, the idea of using masking tape to simulate the planking is great, my concern would be that, being it a low tack tape, it could detach after some time, I imagine you have a plan to properly seal it... How do you think to do that?

My plan is this: after the tape has been applied all over, I will apply a coat of undiluted  matt clearcoat, than the oil and than enother matt clearcoat. I houpe it works.

Great work on the interior!
And interesting idea for the planking of the bottom - I am looking forward to see the final result.

Looks so fabulous!  I do hope that sealing the tape makes it hold permanently.

Thank you to all of you!
Now the oil paint is dries up.
 After that it will be a matt clearcoat.

Good day.
The oil dried up, covered with a layer of matte varnish (Vallejo), this is the final look. The fuselage is closed for a while from dust, and I turn to the wings.
Thank you.
