I've flown on both those planes. Very cool livery.

Looking forward to this.

Here's my build up from this file. Gerry1966 did a fine job getting all the details of this difficult paint job down right.

For Gerry1066, there's a few minor details that could be cleaned up if you want to touch up the file. Specifically, the back cockpit side window (part 4) is too large and the wrong shape. The eyebrow windows (part 3) is the wrong shape, should just be square. The landing gear doors (parts 23, 24) should be grey (same color as the wing), not green. There's some small relics from unfolding on the rear of the main fuselage (part 1) above the "kulula fans" sign. Finally, there's a "no step" sign on the bottom of the right wing that should be removed. That being said, this builds up to be an impressive looking model. I would lower the difficulty level on the title page from "5 of 5" to "3 of 5".

For anybody building the model, here's a few suggestions. I put some white glue soaked tissue paper in the nose cone section to reinforce the nose. It was heavy enough that I did not need to add nose weight. Don't put a lot of weight in the nose, the nose gear is the weakest point of the model. I glued the nose gear together with super glue since this reinforces the paper and makes it almost like plastic. I would also add a layer or two to the nose gear pieces to make them thicker and stronger. I would also notch the nose cone (part a) so it could be formed into more of a cone shape. I trimmed the main former for the engines (part w6) so it's a bit more rounded rather than flat at the bottom of the engine.

Overall, many thanks to Gerry1966 for taking the time and effort to create this little gem of a model.

Hi Knife, thank you for your suggestions. I'll look at it and try to repair. Whole construction isn't mine, as I've written before, only improvements and color, but I'll do the best I can.
And I'll try to correct another thing - nose part. I've got some responses to bad shape and construction, so I'll try to add whole new part.
