Falco's S&P Builds

This is my first follow along build thread for sharpening my 1/100 Building Skills and my first victim is the S&P P-47B. So right of the bat I have a question (see attached photo). Can anybody explain the "WAT" or WHAT ARE THOSE?!?

You put those in horizontally after laminating to thicker paper to maintain the shape. I have also found stuffing with paper napkins helps alot to make the finished model more durable.

Checkpoint for Today is Fuselage... awaiting tail feathers and wings. So far so good. I did not yet purchase the sealer so the ink was coming off from handling the little guy. I am extremely happy about this kit and I plan on building a 1/50 and 1/33 version as well. Enjoy the pictures... That's all for today.

P.S. This version if with tabs...

Check out supermarkers on Amazon. They are great. Very little bleed thru and you can start with just a tint and build the color.

Very clean fuselage!
Personally, for coloring seams I use acrylic paints.

I ordered the super markers. I sent them back. I had an excessive
amount of bleed, and some were dry when I got them.

Used the refunded money to buy some new Pitt artist pens.
