Sounds like a good testing platform, and I always like looking at Yak fighters!!!!

Oh, yes--this is a lovely kit, mate! A great amount of detail is molded in and the engineering of the kit is really fantastic. It looks pretty complicated at first glance but goes together quite nicely and the fit is superb. One drawback of this one is the instruction sheet--it jumps around quite a lot and isn't all that clear until you read the entire text, and even after reading it the illustrations are a little confusing.

Since I'd never built one of these I started by assembling the large interior subassemblies and test fitting everything before painting. I was skeptical that all those interior pieces would come together smoothly, but they fit like a glove! Once all the three cockpits and weapons bay parts were glued I fitted the fuselage halves and it clicked together perfectly.

Aircraft Modeling / Accurate Miniatures Avenger II

Here's another of those old kits that have been sitting on a shelf for far too long--my old Accurate Miniatures TBM. I never really knew what paint scheme to use on this one, there are a fair number of good choices. Finally I went through all my decals and fell on to the best (for me :) ) scheme, a Fleet Air Arm Avenger II from the Pacific Fleet.

Yes, welcome back to our group. Sorry for your loss of such a good friend.

Keep us posted on progress, we're still here!

Your Alclad should be just fine. You may have to add some thinning agent, but that should be easy to come up with. Your pigments are all in place.

This is a fantastic build, mate! Glad you've been able to correct all the small problems with such a huge kit, but now you'll have to build a new room just to display such monsters!!

The method of using tape will work just fine--the vacuform F-89 I built in the 1980s has some tape on it and it is still in good shape after all these years!

Your repair on the engine cowl is somewhat like repairs we do on the real thing, only we only deal in small areas!!!!
