And some final notes/ opinions on the kit sort of FYI for those that pick this kit up

This is my first time trying to modify a kit, which I showed with the cockpit and interior
First time using Tamiya paint, preshading, and using oil washes for weathering
First time using liquid mask, I used mr masking sol, other than the odor it worked great
The landing gear doors fit horribly, some of the placements for the probes and what not on the outside are vague.
The rivet detailing is very nice, but you will lose it in some spots when getting rid of seams
I wish the kit would have come with the option to pose the flaps down to make having the props up look more real.
Frame lines on the canopy suck!!!
Well taking a break, but I have already started another kit, a 1/144 gundam in the sci-fi section so mosey on over there every once and a while to check it out. Thanks for all the kind words! Love the forum here, glad I found this place, maybe I should invest in a video camera and do my own vids eh? lol

:eek: Great finish loving the subtle weathering ... thing just looks mean. Wouldn't know it was your first go at a lot of new techniques and products. Great job!

I always liked this concept of a plane and you did a great job of bringing it back to life.

Great looking build man!

But that is the cleanest Marine aircraft I have ever seen.... needs to be dipped in a can of hydro fluid... ;)
