I left the build before the upper wing sections could be attached.
Bands were used to hold the wings correctly overnight until the cement had set and fully cured.
During the early part of the build I read a few reviews and a couple complainted about the fit of certain parts. I had no such problems other than of my own making, the first 1 was the port engine cowling when I applied a little too much cement which caused a mess and a bigger mess when I tried to rescribe the panel line
The 2nd issue was when fitting the starboard wing root fillet, in trying not to overdo the cement I probably hadn't used enough and when the lower wing was set in place, the wing root fillet slipped towards the interior so had to be forced outwards with a long probe. I think the fillet is still recessed about 0.5mm but the mess made by the probe cleaned up well with some light sanding.
Anyway I think I recovered the situation but you can also see the smooth join along the trailing edge of the wing to the rear fuselage where the lower wing and rear of the wing root fillet meet, which was described in a certain review as leaving a large gap and a horrendous fit . No such problem here .......... !
I then continued a few stages and forgot about the photo's so now we jump to the masking stage where the primer has been sprayed, and another attempt at some pre-shading. The Azure Blue was applied to lower wings and sections and when fully dried the upper Middle Stone was sprayed.
Some of my pre-shading looks a bit heavy and I deliberately tried to keep my top colour coat light as in previous attempts I had totally covered the preshading ....... ?
But I'm hoping the dark earth pattern and weathering once finished will tone down the heavy pre-shading!
Masking now done and it was almost a shame to spray a dark Brown colour over it all. But all the same it was done!
And after allowing 24hrs for the paint to cure .................................
All was revealed!
