Documenting my progress on WordPress is the only way I found to keep going.
Modelers can be somewhat obsessed with details when preserving the past either in 1/72 or 1/48 scale.
The instructions say olive drab for the control wheels.
But the man in the video said red was the original color.

This step of mating the fuselage halves can make it or break it what you are building.The fit looks fine except for aft section.
I know mating the fuselage halves will require to glue them in sections starting with the bow.
But I am not there yet having to decide how to paint the control wheels and the cockpit details.
Control wheels and cockpit details painted and this was finally glued in place…
