Hello all
Next step - the wing.
Nothing too difficult here.
Need to be careful forming the wing's leading edge, it has a pretty small radius. Used a small brush to wet the inner side of the leading edge.
The underwing actuator covers should be mounted with sharper edge forward.
Again, if working carefully, no issue.

Hi all
Just got back from a two weeks family trip.

Apparently, there are broken roof tiles on my house roof just above the table I had this model stored. Some rain water got into the room, messing the model... Messing badly. Fuselage is warped, wing is damaged. This model is beyond repair...
I will reprint and rebuild.
Please stand by....

That foesnt sound very good. I hppe your roof will be ficed very soon.
The roof is already fixed. Just a broken tile. It took me less than 30 minutes to fix.
My ink cartridges are empty so I had to order new cartridges and now I'm waiting.
By the way, I noticed that there is a problem in propellers. They should be counter rotating but the designers made them as if they rotating in the same direction. So I fixed this thing by flipping vertically the right propeller spinner and flipped horizontally the blades.
Also found some repainting issues especially in main gear bay doors so I fixed them also
