Looks great.

Do you cut out the notches with scissors before joining the fuselage sections?

No. I find that not cutting them provides more backing support for the paper. I just bend them in a little and Nobi's stuff fits so well they almost click together like a plasteeq kit.

I punch two holes in the formers and them hold them with a double action tweezer when inserting them. Works great for me. I also reach in with tweezers and pinch the joints together before I add the next former.

If we don't support these people the hobby will never progress. The camaraderie here on PM.com is worth way more than any of them charge for their work....

More progress on Adolf Galland's Battle of Britain "ride" from:

https://thaipaperwork.wixsite.com/onlinestore

This is really a great kit. It pretty much falls together. As I understand it it is now in the hands of the repainters. I think the next release may be a -4 thru -7 Trop!

Finished Adolf Galland's 1940 ride during the Battle of Britain. I portrayed the aircraft winging its way to Britain over the English Channel.

Very nice kit from Nobi. It really just "clicks" together. This is 1/48th scale as available on his website:

https://thaipaperwork.wixsite.com/onlinestore

I am looking forward to the repainters doing their thing with it so I can do a version in 1/100.

For anyone interested in the full build album:
