Yes I know. I plan to print out another in thinner paper and see if I can get it a better shape.

Small shame about the bulbous canopy, but the rest of her looks really good. Is this a Bruno original or repaint? If it is his he excelled at the contrasting panel colours.

the rest of her does look excellent. start trimming the bottom of the canopy where it mates up with the fuselage until it looks right. it'll have to be trial and error. in a quote from one of members in the past," it'll be trial and error. I'm particularly good at the error part"

Still stymied by the canopy. Too bad paper doesn't stretch.

you could print the part at an enlarged scale so that when you trim it to fit it will look proportional.

Peacemaker looks really nice so far. Interesting method with those toothpicks. Works good? Might be useful if it holds the wings strong in their position.

You should see the size of the toothpicks on the real thing. (Official lie of course)

Toothpicks were a very early form of stealth against the Rooskies radar.
