      Of course I have to take it to the next level and make them removable and a bit more scale looking.




      I added a hardwood trailing edge to avoid breaking, Scale wing tip lights as Gunny recommends and then added a fiberglass coating which doubles as a seam cover and helps keep everything aligned
      To hold them in place, there is a hole cut just above the bottom spar of the wing and a leftover scrap piece of spar is used as the attachment point.
      A singel 4-40 screw is used through the bottom spar into the wingtip "spar" Click image for larger version

        The final product after paint and rivet detail added, along with the wingtip light faired in.

        Very happy and they look great

                Adding a little bling to the fin and rudder

                Not wanting to deal with covering around a strobe light , I glassed the top of the fin and rudder with 1/2oz cloth and painted it. Of course I can't stop there. Noooooooo, I have to add fairing and rivet detail. Took about an hour to complete once the glass had hardened. Used a few coats of primer for the fairing look and drops of white glue for the rivets

                  Since modelers will be modelers, I chose to change the look of the airbox in the cowl. The version I saw had an angled inlet, so an angles inlet it will be.

                  Covering is a ton of fun...... NOT.
                  But if you just work away at it, someday it will be done.

                    COWL DETAIL

                    Let's have some more fun with detailing the cowl,
                    If you guys have never tried this, I highly recommend you give it a go.

                    Get some very thin ( 1/32 ) chart tape ( online ) to use as your panel lines and have at it.

                    This was a little wider since its a cowl seam where the hood latches down.


                    4 coats of filling primer over the tape lines and then pull the tape off, let it dry. Sand lightly over the lines to dull them up a bit and your ready for rivet detail.

                    I simply took a syringe, put some aliphatic resin glue in it and started putting drops down. Its not difficult at all, if you screw up, them wipe it off and do it again.
                    The glue will shrink down a bit so the rivets will be smaller than your initially see when applying .
                    After they're dry, a quick dust over with 220 paper to take any nipples off them and your ready for s quick light primer coat and final paint. Full scale aircraft are not perfect and the rivets are often not perfect ether, especially warbirds. So if you get a line thats not perfectly straight or one is too close to the next, don't worry, it makes it look more realistic.

                      Details on the white paint? Source, ease of use, colormatch.

                      Thanks,
