Thanks guys - I had no idea that 6 different nail sizes were used - Have a great chart on what and where - that's why you see different "dot" sizes on the fuselage - and it took me three weeks to figure it out - -

Amazing work. You make it look easy and I know from experience that it is anything but easy.

You nailed the printed grain. Really looks the part. Keep at it going to be so worth it
