Love the nose art, the right choice to detract from true-scale for that imho
Other than that...jaw-dropping scale attention, love it

Roller with an extension! That's great Stack!

Thanks awmeade, sirzeppu

Had a dental appt get in the way today but I did fix some paint spots that had slipped under my masking and worked on the tan areas on the boom & middle section. Just have the med green areas to finish and it should be close to decals and protective coat. Pretty anxious to put all the pieces together and see what I have.

Thanks Kevin,
You keeping Lmeano, Eaton, and the rest of the gang under control?

I hear you Hawk, we're getting close.

Speaking of that "special hammer", maybe Jeremy can post a pic of it to refresh our reader's memories?

Hoping I can finish the weathering /accents today and finally sit the middle section on the fuse to see how my camo matches up. Might get lucky and be right but I figure I will have to touch up and adjust it a little. Haven't sat the middle section on since I started painting because it is such a PITA to carry across the shop and put them together.

Hi J.
I am in the sidelines watching you work on your latest 119 project. You just keep on getting better. The rivets you put on are a PITA. But that is something that makes the work pop out. Of course I am like you about landing gear. They are another pain. But after seeing the videos on takeoff and landing I believe that was all worth it also.

This is a fantastic plane you are building here. As always all your work on all of your planes are all fantastic. I believe you should be the ruling King of RC Groups - Composite building. It was all a standout achievment in my opinion.

I found this tutorial below while surfing aircraft threads on panel lines and rivets. It will help some of the followers in this thread watching you doing you Master works.

Merry Christmas

Thanks Bob,
I also admire your work you are doing with the seaplanes. Amazing stuff.

You had better make it if you want this thing to fly there. Need real good thumbs on this one.
You can room with me, I'll even get a non-smoking room.

My tech advisor is watching me closely. Good thing too. I had forgotten the jet engines camo.
Still had them all black. So I fixed that this morning. This build wouldn't be half as good without him. All those years as a FE on the 119s is real handy! Invaluable
I'm just about done weathering,etc. I'll be putting the middle section on today to check the camo pattern. I'm sure I will have to firs up the airbrush again and touch up a little but won't be much.
Now it's time for what little decals she has.
