This is the second of these kits I've built. They're absolutely straightforward: great fit, nice detail, easy to build. The only deviation from the box contents was the markings, as I wanted to do mine in this unusual Republic of China scheme.

Another absolute stunner, Mike. I'm also glad you found your way here to post more of your builds.

A very smart build and well photographed. Can I ask how you did the panel lines?

Beautiful build. You are in a league of your own! I like the ROC markings too. Something different and fitting to the aircraft.

Thanks for the kind words Propwash, DCRanger and Tom Smile

It's an oil wash of blue-grey, heavily thinned and then flowed into each panel line with the tip of a fine brush. Capillary action just draws the wash along each line. The model has to be gloss-coated for this method to work effectively.

I am going to try that technique on my B-17B. It has recessed panel lines, so it would be a great candidate for that process.

It's a perfect subject for the technique and should look stunning. Looking forward to seeing it.
