The fitting of the plastic parts was excellent for this kit. I airbrushed it with Tamiya acrylic paints. Tamiya’s plastic took really well the paint with no need of primer. I made the stand with construction grade 4X4 pine stained with General Finishes Georgian cherry gel stain and two layers of General Finishes gel topcoat. The stand’s rod is 1/16″ K&S square brass rod fitting into a piece of Evergreen 1/8″ squared styrene rod encased into the plane’s fuselage.
