Drybrush masks were used to do the steps and window frames:

Dbrushed in four colors:

A good time to point out the useful demarcation provided by the cockpit coaming. I have a mask for this as well.

Mind numbing busy work.

Double glueing the 40 odd eyelets into the top wing , rib tape decal repair and paint touch ups , readying the top wing for its install.

Also thinking about strut attachment to the bottom wing.

Fuse details;

Specifically the gunring , gunring door , and the debris guards:

A pic to show the a/m guard screen (not used , as well as the other 80% of the useless a/m set):

 No ref pics for the a/m screen , lots for the kit parts.

Set up for painting.

S'more fuse detail work.

On the IP doghouse adding the 2 mirrors and sorting the windshield.

Mirrors are mounted ,the left by drilling out the marked hole inside the doghouse and guessing where the right one went , both mounted slightly angled up and to the outside , care given that the 2 faces are parallel when viewed from the side.

You can see the windshield in the pic laying there. I suggest that the windshield be fitted when the doghouse work is started. It fits problematically and needs special care to get it sorted:

P/E bezels were used to replicate mounting flanges..
