If mating the wings was somewhat easy, mating the fuselage halves will take some time because of this.
I will glue the fuselage halves section by section making sure everything is glued solid. I still have some little touch-ups to do because once the fuselages halves are glued painting these touch-ups will be hard to do.
Control wheels will be painted black as Jeff suggested. I should be receiving the after-market decals soon. I already have received by email the twelve 8.5 x 11 in. pages illustrated documentation.
The PBY is a quite large model kit and I will have to use common sense assembling some parts before painting. Fragile parts will be added at the end.
After-market decals will be added before the wings are attached to the fuselage.
