Looks like your Kiwi Corsair is waiting patiently for you to finish Tabby so it can shoot it down.

Wish me luck.
Try some styrofoam or even a piece of wire with two heavy pieces of cardstock on either side. You can also stuff them carefully with old paper napkins. Over stuff them a bit and then gently form them to airfoil shape.

Don't worry, Michael. Wings are OK!
I'm planning to make stiffener through fuselage to keep wings in their position, just in case. Without it, wings could be broken easily. Soon you'll see what I mean exactly.

Fuselage... I can't say it's done. Cockpit requires some work. I have to fill holes under windows using PVA white glue and then retouch whole fuselage. Construction is really solid so I internal structure wasn't needed. Like I said before, it's not an easy model.
I spent a lot of time molding this fuselage. DC-3 and its variants have quite distinctive shape.
Tomorrow I'll take that green rectangle to the local modeler's store. I hope to find a matching paint for retouch.
Wings are not glued, of course.

Very good work with the fuselage, I hope you can get the painting, otherwise you will have to improvise.

Taking shape and looking good Kacper.

You still have local modelling stores in Poland??! Apart the few big high-turnover operators they've all but disappeared here.

Today I went to that store. Unfortunately, I haven't found the paint but owner(also modeler) told me to look for Vallejo Model Color 70.838. It was only matching color on charts. I have to order it online. It's Thursday so I would probably get my paint on Monday or Tuesday...

There's only one modelling store in Olsztyn(Allenstein), located in downtown. I don't know how it is in the other cities or towns.

Vallejo paints are good. I've got a lot of them.
