You've been missed, but what a way to make a return!  A truly outstanding build.  I hope you documented it in-progress and would be willing to share that with us so I don't have to pester you with many questions about it!  Thank you so much for sharing the photographs.

Regards,

Mark

Krystian,

Thanks for sharing your weathering techniques, for the end results are truly fantastic.  How did you rid your model of those seams from the plugs and inserts?  

Thanks again for posting the photographs!

Mark

Hello Kris,

Your English is fine!  I probably didn't phrase my question very well.

Here is a picture of the instructions to help explain:

For instance, the instructions show that parts M1 and M2 are glued to the wing assembly  You did something when building your model that, if I didn't know this was the case, I would never know these were separate parts.  It is like gluing the fuselage halves together and not being able to tell that these were separate parts, like a real P-40 is like.  I am wondering what you did to make your model look so realistic in this regards.  I often used "CA" or superglue to get rid of these seams.

I hope this helps in explaining my questions!

Hi.
Now understand.
To use all the filling, mix Tamiya putty + CA. Polishes into effect until it is okay. Also modified the order of gluing the fuselage.

The instructions show that the build part A17 + A16, then we make a part for a walk E4, then tail F7 + F6. At the end of fuselage glued to his tail.

I glue fuselage part A16 + F6 tail section ( left side ) then I make Fuslage part A17 + F7 tail ( right side ) Place glue fill and polishes, It`s eaiser.
glue finished at the end left and right sides and put part E4.
