Painting complete. Letting it cure for a day or two then going to put the Russian Stars on it and a final flat clearcoat!

Nope! She's a screamin slimer all the way!!!! When you get one you can put a rediculous electric power plant in it! Just make sure you break 120 mph or you'll be left in the dust! :D ;)

I finally got the markings on! I was planning on doing it this way already but, I got on the web to see if I could find a pic for the actual placement of the stars. Low and Behold!!! There was a pic of a real p-39 in the EXACT same markings that I had already planned on doing!!!! I thought that was kinda neat! Woo HOO!! The worst part is over! Next...get engine mounted and radio gear in!
