Do you remember my post on April 30?
I explained that the antenna have to be placed elsewhere so I used putty to fill the hole and, to avoid too much putty in the interior, I obstructed the hole with a little part of Evergreen...

...It was really a good idea...

...Except that, because of that Evergreen part, it was impossible to close the fuselage!!!
So I had to remove the Evergreen before to continue...

...After that, assembling the aircraft was easier.
Well, it's not a perfect kit and putty will be needed - But it's a "cute" Corsair!
To be noted the new antenna mast on the back of the fuselage...

I used Vallejo putty; Perfect Plastic Putty and finally needed also Mr Surfacer 500. That last one must be sanded then panels rescribed before to begin to paint...

I have used Aluminium from AK Xtreme metal. Love those paints...
