thats nice. Post Some Pictures.
who has made your kit? Yellow Aircraft, Midwest, etc?
Post some pictures. making myself honest, i love to see the planes on the wood stage. Its really beautiful, and i think its very nice.

The problem about making myself the color scheme is simple. I know how to build, but never have painted, just monokote.
We both know that monokote dont looks like real. it look likes plastic.."Oh my God!! It is plastic"
ha ha ha ha ha

Send pictures!
