Paint, and more paint and some brass…….
Finally am painting the COD, the thing is huge! Not too much smaller than a 1/48 B-17, bigger than a 1/48 B-25 for sure! The last picture is how I handled the heat shields on the inboard flaps. Kinetic has some raised texture I sanded off, I took thin brass sheet, embossed it and glued it to thin plastic sheet, then attached that to the flap. Almost there then I can start on my Phantom for the group build! Edited to add a picture of how she will look when done, and the window with my name above it, one of the biggest honors this ground pounder ever got!
