Slowed on the Shark a bit due to spring duties. Today I received an incentive to go full throttle, the decals from Stan, works of art. I also found an unopened bottle of Flo Quil Tuscan Red on my shelf, also found one on line and not wanting to run out sent for it. Same formula number, but different color. The more brown one is a match to the USAT and Aristo Craft products. LiG

So Far: Cut out and relocated fans to proper location, same with roof panels and walks. Each shell was cast using a different color material, I used some white plastic pieces and two different fillers. All that can make the irregularities no so obvious. Primed. Very satisfied with all but one small area, easy fix. LiG

Bill, thank you. I filled in that one irregularity, super fine sanded the body and giving it another coat of primer. Next step will be the undercarriage and bolsters that hold the power trucks. Going to copy what USAT did on the F3's. LiG.
EDIT: found another area that needs a little more attention. LiG
