Small update from my side, although it contains one week of work - Degelow's wings are fully decaled and everything's ready for mat coat, while Berthold's are in the process of applying rib tapes and fuselage still dries, to be gloss coated... Oh yes, both sets of wings require minor corrections to ripped decals (blaming and cursing Roden and my clumsiness all the time :-evil)
BTW nice interior, Samuraj :-ok

Today, minor corrections on the upper wing. Microsculpt decals are nice but fragile... Really fragile... Very fragile... :-evil
The wing is photographed being still under the MicroSet effect  :-roll

For the ribs, I'm finally using Americal Gryphon ones. Just because there is more ribs on that sheet than on the Eagle Strike, and more ribs than present on Eduard decal sheet will be needed. Work in progress on the undersurfaces.

For my kit I've actually problems with Microsculpt decals. As you can read on Theaerodrome, there are the best - they say. I'm not convinced at all... Sure there are nice for what concerns lozenge colors (even if, as said, none owns the truth in this domain...) but there are a pitty to place. After three coats of MicroSol, I still have defaults in the upper lozenge decals of my upper wing...

You have preserved samples of fabric in your country so you can always check out who is the best.
