Arriving at the 6th week of this build I finished the nacelles and wings then added more photo etch details to the fuselage. The fuselage, wings and nose were then assembled. I then began the task of masking all the canopies with kapton tape (see Masking with Kapton Tape ) so that I can apply the initial basecoat of semi-gloss paint. I should be able to get all the initial painting done so I can start working on the decals.
