    Thanks for the kind words everyone! In case you were wondering what a DaveG pattern looks like next to a Nice-N pattern.

    Man, did you nail that - and so darn fast too.

    What colour did you end up using for the brownish grey bands on the engines? It looks spot-on perfect.

    Thanks Keiko! The build was pretty simple. I pretty much had all the pieces between the kit and sourced kit parts from my previous Y. So the time consuming portion of this build was mainly research and gathering information. Once I figured out the configuration of the parts were very similar to the Ladd Y, I then had nice hi-res photos to use. However there are subtle differences.

    As far as the nacelle bands I'm still not sure which was painted first on the model, the grays or browns. I went with the gray first on mine and after doing some test sprays actually ended up going with a rusty brown color I mixed on top of the gray. As you can see in this photo, it wasn't applied evenly on the original, just kind of randomly.
