Can anyone inform me about Trumpeters 1 32 kit for the Corsair F4U 1D with regards two questions :

1 : can I paint the clear engine cowling directly or do I have to prep it in some way ? Someone suggested spraying Scotchgard on the surface.

2 : how does the acetate film instrument panel get glued or attached in between the back and front panel pieces ? Theres no place to spot glue into any area...

Never built Trumpeter's big Corsair, but I suggest you paint the inside of the clear cowling with the interior colour to avoid see through effect.

In reply to Sturmovik above, I think he meant to say paint the OUTSIDE of the clear part. Painting the insdide surface would produce a very odd-looking cowling. I would recommend you prime the cowling before you paint it. 

 

Cheers.

Had a brain fart yesterday. Yes, paint the outside with a primer and the add the camouflage colour.
