thank you David, I appreciate the encouragement coming from such a talented artist. I still have lots of little 'hot-spots' and the like to touch-up, but it has turned out ok so far. These Dumas kits go together pretty squarely I have to say. TRy as I might to put the wings on side skewered, the model just wouldna' let me.

Amazing!

Thank you, John - it's interesting in that it looks quite different to itself depending on the lighting... The yellow is not the light and buttery color that I wanted it to be but it'll do

Smooth lookin' striking prop on that cowl Heywood!

yes Dave - here's to a smooth move, lol

Tom - regarding the prop profile - apparently the unique shape also had to do with getting more RPM out of the motor. They figured airspeed would take care of the cooling and reducing the length of the airfoil would increase RPM.

yes I had thought about switching them to basswood or similar - but this is the first time build of this kit for me so I like to use as much of the kit supplied materials as I can. The plane has enough other designed in deviations already that I don't think one more will affect the overall appearance of this model. If on the other hand this were the only issue I would probably have switched materials and sanded in the strut detail. If I build this kit again I will plan ahead and fix all of the issues I have found.

I need another can of the yellow. I bought two but this needs three. I hope I have enough green - that had to be ordered from Tamiya direct because no one stocks it here

I did the first yellow pass and realized I had not set the wing supports up yet - so they are now installed. I plan to focus the yellow on the wings, horizontal tail, and wheel spats - then mask those areas and spray the Cobalt Green. Then paint the upper wing prior to installment.

still have a few little hot spots to clean up...this is just the initial coat of yellow on the fuse..the cowling is done.

Im liking the Cobalt Green on that cowling..

Hewyoood, nice scenery and enjoyed the picture that also included your feet resting with the dog looking on. I'm puzzled about the "hour" glass shaped I wing struts being too fragile. How about using hardwood? Basswood? Just thinking outloud. That model is really coming along beautifully. Really impressed with the propeller. I understand (now) what you meant by the propeller being almost all tube inside thw ring of the engine cowl. Makes sense. Beautiful model!
