With that detail I would understand if he skipped the PE.

That looks excellent! You've got skillz! Love the control hoses you've added! [biggrin]

For tiny brushes I highly recommend "The Army Painter" brushes. The sizes you're going to want for those details are "Insane Detail" and "The Psycho". Nigel and I both use them and they are very good brushes for very tiny details. I got mine for figures, but they work on everything tiny very, very well.

Also, check into some .01 and .02 fine artists pens from "Pigma". The Micron series comes in a variety of colors and are small enough for the buttons on your IP's. Cuts the stress level significantly.

Keep up with the excellent work Alba! [smile]

Oh nice! Their dry brushes look fabulous, but since I already have a good range of them I didn't get any. But they do have one a smaller than my smallest dry brush and I do want it. [smile]

I like Tamiya Paints too, they spray really nicely, the German grey looks like a good match for RLM 66

Thanks mate, Mine is coming along slowly. The level of work shown on this group build so far is of a very high standard, I think that Bobby will have a tough job choosing between them, I'm going to have to try and up my game a lot if I want to give myself half a chance this time I reckon lol

Well i glued to fuselage together got the wings on, i just need to wait till payday to get some kind or putty and fill a few gaps
I also had an attempt at scribing the panel lines as they didnt all line up, but it got a bit messy, so can i just refill them with putty or CA glue then rescribe them?

I saw someone mention about using Dymo tape as a guide so ordered some from ebay and give it a go again when it arrives
