Looks great - I am going to start mine this weekend. I have never used PE before so I will be in the same boat as you. I am thinking canopy closed on mine but nothing is certain at this stage.

Forgive me if I'm stating the obvious ! give those resin bits a good wash in water with a bit of washing up liquid in it, the first time I used resin I didn't and the paint rubbed off very easily I think it was the stuff they put on the moulds so the parts release easier. The build is moving along well now, again that etch IP Turned out great

Thanks for the heads up about those parts needed for the cockpit. I am trying to get myself to finish my Corsair before I start my Da Nang for my first GB as well. Plus I will be moving in about six weeks and am concerned about how long my "shop" will be down.
It looks to me like you are getting a handle on photoetch pretty quickly.

Good progress Col, hope to start mine in a week or so maybe start with the Revell 1/72 first, just a few hints for resin work, as stated agood wash is essential, and before any paint goes on a good wipe over with airbrush cleaner or a dilute of lacqeur thinner, this will kill any residue of mould release agent. Always prime, again I use a good quality etching primer, this hooks into the surface better than a plastic primer.
Good luck with the build I will watch with interest, yours will be a good reference for me.
Best Wishes 
Gary

I saw on another website where they first prime resim using a spray can primer as this adheres best to the resin (Gamesworkshop spray can) and then they primed on top of that with the Vallejo primer. I will be taking that route when I get to this point in the build. Also, not sure if it will work with this model, but Bob seems to install the main tube into the fuselage during the build but, if the cans can be joined on later, he adds them at the end of the build / weathering so as not to affect the natural metal finish paint job with matt varnish.

Nice progress on the build now Col ! Those cans will look great painted up, I saw a review of this kit on the net and the detailing looks lovely on the resin parts
