Hey guys, sorry it took so long to get these pics posted, I kinda got sidetracked with a couple of other builds. : After a little more chipping I coated the Pete with future then applied the decals. I have to say that Hasegawa's latest run of decals have been great! I only had to hit the decals twice with decal softener to get them to set. After the decals dried I gave them a coat of future to protect the from the wash. The wash is Flory model sand and was applied with the airbrush. Once dry I removed the excess with a damp paper towel and then a flat coat to seal her up. I had a great time with the GB, All the builds here are great, with a good group of people! OK enough mush here's the Pete!
Fumble, The Hardest part of the build was trying to figure out how to paint the plane without masking. Leaving the top wing off was what I came up with. The PE rigging was designed to be quick and easy. Aside from the Zero this was the most straight forward models hasegawa has produced. I think you'll have a great time building one!
