Here's one I've been working on.  No major concerns that can't be fixed but the engine pylons, those will require some surgery as they angle down in the front. Using Brasil Decals (I don't like them but they are doing okay so far).  They are adhering okay but they have a thick clear film that I'd fighting me to keep air bubbles underneath.  Here's a few pics.

That's looking good and that looks like a great scheme.

I've finished the fuselage and I am starting on the wings.  I've read and saw a build review about how the engines pointed down a bit in front and test fitting mine they look like they will do the same.  Are there any replacement engines and mounts that will work for this kit or does anyone have a write-up on how they corrected it?  I am doinig more scratch work these days but I'm still a novice.

Thanks,

Chris
