If you mean that dark line down the middle of the rear( clamshell doors) then that is the separation line between the doors. I must have pulled in a slight warp when I glued them on. And they are solid and not coming off, didn't want anything bad happening in flight. It just something that I will have to live with. Hell, there are more mistakes in this build than that, I'm famous for them.

Nah, I think that he's talking about the camo paint line where the rear of the wing center section mates to the fuselage. The green/tan line doesn't mate up.

Wow, lots of great shots here. We're almost there! I see you didn't quiet get the match-up with the wing center like you had hoped ... I'm sure you'll have that taken care of quickly ... assuming you haven't already done so!

I could spend hours in you shop looking at this plane. There's so much detail!

Oh yeah, I haven't gotten the airbrush out to fix that yet. The front is off about 1/4" too where it mates up. Actually I was pretty happy with how close they came out. I just did it measuring because I didn't want to carry that heavy middle section over to the fuse.

We're getting there Hawk.

Jeremy,
Where's that hammer pic????

Going shopping today..... hey, you do what you have to do.
But I need to find some poly for my protective coat. Going to use the spray bombs poly. Figure I will need three cans of it. Once I get all the small things left to finish it I can put it all together for pics. Still some detail work to go though.

Yeah, like I said, I was pretty surprised it was that close by just measuring it and then spraying.
At least it's a quick and easy fix unlike some of them.
I have a bad looking seam at the LE/fuse. Not sure how I will fix it, still thinking about it. Sometimes paint helps hide mistakes, some times it makes them more apparent. This one is the latter.

Really looks amazing! I think the finish detail is great. How did you end up doing your panel lines? Greg
