After putting few platings parts, i ve seen thats terrible and aesthetically (plating is made from 3 parts - 2 sides and 1 bottom) unsatisfactory so i ve somehow finished and sprayed with putty over applyed with acrylate putty and finally polished - prepared for red spay:)

yes, fly model and lot of fun begun, i ve started to build structures, so the central one is ok, but sides AA places r terrible, square profile is trapezium, something is bigger then part above vice versa, lot of retouching and improvisation is necessery.

HI SKY,

Ships are not my topic but I know from the planes that FLY kits are a challenge. You made it to a success. It's a pleasure to show us your clean built.
