Some work from my side, although there wasn't much time these days...
Berthold: Finished rib tapes and wing crosses applied - the pressure of the tweezers was just a little too hard for fragile Roden's decals, but this was later corrected with paint.
This morning the center section of the upper wing is sprayed base white, and later a blue was applied - I've finaly laid my hands onto the shade I imagined :-jump - maybe just a little too light, but proper blue - MM 1594 (Thanx, Tanja! :-flo). Here's first layer, while the second one is going to do the thing, I believe :)
Degelow: I intended to use wash on the wings to minimise obvious silvering of rib tapes, which even liberal application of nitro solvent couldn't kill (first 2 pics). Following pictures show the progress and finished surface of lower wings - unfortunatelly, silvering is still visible :-wall

Was here yesterday, with a family - kids had a playday, and we discussed weathering techniques...
Unfortunately weather was bad so we were inside , although the original plan was to unleash some kites by the river...

A small evening update: MGs are mounted, along with gun blast tubes. These are made of beforementioned Nescafe can.
Don't know if you have already noticed footsteps on the wings - aluminium-painted decal...
Until soon :-wave

Today I played scratchbuilding a little - Aldis gunsight is made of syringe, as are gun tubes... Christ, what a job to cut those little pieces and try to keep'em on the table at the same time :-wall Actually I've cut 4 but have found only 2.
Support for gunsight is of stretched sprue. OK, the paint should be corrected, it wasn't scratched so much...
Now the stage is finally set for attachment of upper wing :-roll
