This is the old Eduard kit that many of you know. However I am only using about 5% to 10% of the kit. The rest of this build will be scratched. Actually the only parts from the kit that are used are the wings, the fin, rudder and of course the ample PE.
First up were the wings, which were in need of some surgery. When placed on Data File drawings I discovered that the cord was 2.5mm too wide, so I took it off the leading edge and reshaped the wings to match the drawings. Also at this time the starving cow ribs were made healthy, ailerons were cut out and then decal rib tapes applied. The decal ribs used were of a wood colour to create a shadow effect for the CDL. I also painted roundels on under sides of wings for shadow effect.
