I wanted to add a pilot to this one so started with the cockpit - added aftermarket gun sight, labels and some PE parts from Eduard - Plus a resin seat...Tried out the salt thing too on the floor boards, was a bit heavy handed but first try... :?

Thanks Mark, Casp. I finished it today, As mentioned it is from the Enterprise circa early 1942 - Want to do a companion Dauntless from the 'Big E' soon...

Another fantastic build, I noticed you paint and decal before assembling the kit, how do you deal with the seams? Or do you dry fit and smooth any seams first?
Cheers Les.

Hi Les - I struggle with decals and masking after assembly - I feel more comfortable with the bits and pieces laying flat whilst I work on them. So after joining the pieces, I fill, sand and spot paint....sounds like the hard way to do it but it's what I'm used to :D :superlglue:
