  1. Nice clean build of a very neat airplane.

  2. I agree with George that it's a neat build, and good job on these huge decals.

    If I was to make one suggestion, that would be to add wash/some shading to the panel lines. To my mind, doing it would bring this model from good to great. But then it's a matter of personal choice.

  3. Thank you for the advice. I thought about doing that as well but don't have much experience in panel line shading as was afraid of ruining the plane if done wrong.

    • You have my sympathy as I often feel the same... I can recommend a non-destructive wash to begin with, that's easy enough to remove if it goes wrong.
