@airbum Erik it seems in the Mediterranean Theater, the De-Icing Boots were removed on many aircraft. That left the leading edges underneath bare metal exposed. You can see it clearly on the vertical stabilizer. Its a bit of an issue, because the kit has these surfaces thicker, and I had to sand them down to remove but still leave an indication that they were there. I would have preferred they remained black, but the silver will just add more interest I think. But yes, I think it will be pretty heavily weathered when done.
