Its unfortunate that they didn't update a few things, other than the paint scheme, when they came out with the Island Wings version. I would have really liked the windows to be corrected. Too costly I guess.

The problems with the first edition beaver,( paint coming off if ANYTHING is adhered to it), has carried over to the Island Wings edition. Even with 2 coats of Minwax Polycrylic clear coat, painters tape lightly applied will peel the paint off!

Truth be told, I don't think there is a paint or a foam preparation that really bonds and resists masking tape or light scuffing. Guess that's the 'price' you pay for a foam model.
