Doing some detailing work tonight, on the WIldcat. There is an access panel for the trim tab, so used some aluminum tape, cut to shape, and then the round screw heads applied with a syringe, and drops of glue. Rib-stitching is done again with the syringe, but in thin lines. You can see the areas that are almost dry, the glue shrinks quite a bit, and once sprayed with primer, will show faint lines as per the photo from the Squadron signal Walkaround book I use for reference.

Re: Jerry Bates F4F Wildcat

Nice! Looks like you've got the "Dark Slate Grey" (which is actually more green than grey) applied as well.

Re: Jerry Bates F4F Wildcat

Nope, that's just the fabric colour, it needs a coat of primer, then paint.

One half of the rudder and trim tab done, primed, ready for paint. The rib stitching and rivet detail is subtle, but visible, pretty happy with the results.
