Amazing detail Ondra, keep those updates coming! The new version of the stitching is impressive to say the very least!
Cheers,

To keep reworking parts as you do must take the patience of a saint! As usual you set a standard for the rest of us to aspire to.

Many thanks for you nice and encouraging comments, Rick, Lance and Stephen!

I used the prolonged weekend (public holiday on Friday) and found some time for the workbench.

I started reworking the wheels by adding the valve covers.




I also enjoyed some masking upon preparation for the fuselage preshading and started working on the preshading on the wings.




After a lot of filling and sanding on the undercarriage I is almost ready for painting, only a few minor corrections will be necessary.



Cheers

Fantastic work in the land of dwarfs!
The gear is sooo cool, you are the true master of that small scale.

Cheers,
Frank

I wholly agree with Frank. The undercarriage is a work of art in itself, but the rest is very good too. This is yet another of your amazing builds.

Many thanks for your nice and generous comments, Frank, Stephen, Rick and Manni, they are a great encouragement to me!

At the end of the day I am glad I decided to rework the preshading and oil soaking on the fuselage and wheels, yesterday I finished the new version and I like it better than the previous one.








Cheers

Amazing shading. Your oil staining should look awesome when you finish! I am truly in awe of what you do!!

The amount of detail on this kit in this scale speaks volumes on your skills.   :D

Many thanks for your nice comments, Rick, Juan and Toby!

This is where I stand now, the parts got a coat of Drooling Bulldog Greyish green for the wings and Unbleached Linen for the fuselage and tail. The preshading is actually more visible than on the photos. Will see what it will look like after oil paints. The oil soaking will definitely need emphasizing by means of what I call "intershading". :)

What an amazing build, ondra. That is another masterpiece from your bench. I am deeply impressed by your preshading technique in particular. To acchieve that in 1:144 is simply outstanding.
Best regards

A joy to see and read your wip. Amazing!
A model thrives on its overall impression and not on that every little disagreement over the original is hyped up as a disaster
