That is a nice build. The only suggestion I have is to mask the canopy. You will get a better result. Masking is a bit of a pain, but on a model like this, but it is worth it. Other than that it is a great result.

Well done Junkers :clap2:

Thanks Dennis,thanks Greg, this model naily did not get finished, had to partly  respray it  as was going to be in different markings and wasn't happy with the result, also some of the conopie masks were an to long and marked the Johnson, when removing them removed some of the conopie frames.was going to replace the rear sections of the canopie but would probably be worse. So hand paint them and reapply the Johnsons. Just noticed I have missed some of the frames when I hand painted them.haven't had a build like this one for a while, all my fault thou. Building two models at the same never goes well for me.  😢

I do know what you mean. I just finished my Frog / Russian kit  Blenheim. I will show it in my work in progress thread only. My canopy was very hard to fit nicely and the scribing into that hard plastic was a nightmare.

My masking came off well considering it was on there for over a year I think. Still it is good to get these builds done isn't it.

Yip Greg, I think these type of builds are a good learning curve and a good experience , my dad always told me a good Modeller is a Modeller that can hid there mistakes well. Nick
