XF-55 Deck Tan was not satisfying finally: at day light, gived an impression of a little bit of grey, and definitively too dark...

I've opted for another paint: French Beige from PolyScale. Looks better...

OK. I've tried. But nerviously, it was too much for me...

Feel better now...  :-green
I will use the kit's part, without any regret: I've verified keeping the PE and the kit's part at eyes level, you see exactly the same.




I've been in that situation before with photoetched material! Compound curves are hard to deal with, especially with the louvers on your cowling.

Yes Scott, it was too much for me... But the kit part is good enough, no problem for the kit...

I agree.... I'm using parts of a Verlinden PE kit on my B-17. The Verlinden bomb bay doors are quite nice but getting even the gentle curve in them that is required is pretty difficult. Your lower panel would have been ten-times as hard to shape!

Great project and thread!

Give that PE part a :-salut and continue con calma now... :-ok
The only time I actually hate PE parts is when I can't see what I'm doing because something is so tiny...
Or when I complicate my life just like as you tried to :-roll

Thank you!

PE parts are generally useful and can add realism to your model; but sometimes there are just bothering.
PART makes splendid PE; but I must say I NEVER have used the totality of the elements proposed...

Now that my professional studies are finished, I can build my models again...

Preparation phase (masking) before "wood" painting...

Thank you mate!

Next: holes... Made with my "home-made" tool: a light support was needed; I used a toothpick...
