Now I can express the idea I had when you first applied the silver on the bottom---I initially thought this might be a Latvian "what-if" version painted to be like the Gladiators they operated. I like this better, though!

This is possibly the best product for panel lines

FINISHED!!!

I've airbrushed matt varnish (Pébéo); removed the cockpit masks; used pastels and paintbrusehd gloss varnis on the position lights.

I love that little Wildcat...
