More done today - got the wing fitted. The wings were a bit of a struggle, the fit of the wheel well is pretty tight. Does remind me a bit of the original Eduard 190's with the tolerances. Anyway I needed to sand the top of the wheel wells, and fill a small gap at the leading edge.

Decals on - not a fun process, they are very thin, not very opaque and seem to want to curl up if you look at them. Also have pretty uneven carrier film which is a pain on the stencils.

More done this weekend. Started with a light oil wash, which lead to a wierd problem where some of the acrylic silver reacted with the oil (but only in a couple of places), despite being under a coat of varnish. Just resprayed. Anyway moved on and got the Propeller done, and unmasked, and started the weathering process.
