Real nice build!  I would have never in a million years thought about the rib line.  But, for such a splendid build, I would dab a bit of putty on the top front turret mount, and brush some thinned paint.  Shouldn't take you long at all.  Had a bit of fun with mine too!

What???...that is the coolest model I've ever seen, such a great tribute to James Allen Ward, I'm just so impressed. And yeah I split that joint when I pushed the turret in, but I've moved on to be honest, I'm an express modeller.

That's the fabric ballooning between the ribs due to the lower upper surface pressure whilst in flight.

The effect disappears completely on the ground. Unless you're closer than a couple of feet to the real thing you can't see any ribs in the fabric surface. 

The Airfix kit effect is refined but overstated, the Trumpeter kit effect is a grossly overscale caricature.

I did not know that, such a cool fact, I will keep that in mind on my next one, thanks, Owen
