    What markings are you planning to apply? You might say I have something of an affinity for the poor old Buffalo...

    If you do one of the Dutch machines that flew from Singapore, you get to put the triangles on the upper wings as well as the lower wings....not trying to influence you in any way!

    masking of canopies is finished... al evening doing with canopy... from maskin till glueing...
    I had little mishap also... canopy who is for British, Netherlands version is in garbage... I have manage to turn over little bottle where I have nitro for AB cleaning... and of course canopy got own portion of nitro...
    Luckely in box was second canopy, but this one is for USAF version with hole in windsheald... for these telescopic aiming device.
    I try to fix that hole, hopefully I have manage to do something, but little is visible edge of the hole under new windshield panel what I made for cover the hole ( trasparent plastic folie).
    Another problem is that that I cut off all antenas, another type of pilot seat is inside cockpit and cannot do USAF version...

    Well, I will finished kit... with or without visible hole under new panel of windsheald...


    Masking and all preparation for painting is over...




    Cheers
