Took almost two weeks and its probably my best model thus far.

Two weeks?!! I'd take two years and still not do as good a job! Very nicely done, Sir.

 Exceptional finish. Thats a corker of a build. What do you use for the aerial wire and how did you join the two parts together at the T junction above the radio operators position? That is very delicately done, I havnt found a good solution to that yet in 1/72.

Hi Pete.    My life changed when i found that ez line existed!  Is is fine elastic thread.  It comes on a spool and can stretch 200% plus in length.  Simply glue it on with CA glues.  I used a dab of CA on the line and placed the vertical line on it.

 

I use the Uschi brand of rigging line.  This is FINE for 1/48.  They make super fine for 1/72.

 

I am getting better with putting it on.  This is my best job with it...
