Still waiting for my engines to arrive.. I want to get them installed before I finish assembling the wings and then on to painting.

I did apply the masks to get ready though and did a bit more work on the tail

Montex masks are great but they don't stick well around curved surfaces!

I wonder if hot air from a hair dryer might help ?

I find they a little stiff too, Warren. I have on occasion used them as a pattern to cut a replacement from Tamiya tape for the difficult pieces.

That's a mean looking boat.

Wow, I just found this and got caught up. Thanks for the memories. I got one of these as a raffle prize from Columbus IPMS Nationals and built it last year. What a fun and enjoyable kit to build. I'll be watching the rest of this.

I might end up doing that John!

So, my engines did come earlier this week but I've been a bit too under the weather to do much. Did get to a little last night after the kids went to bed.

The Vector engines are always nice! They are supposed to be Shvetsov ASh-73 engines but these will suit my purposes!

I cut out a small piece of sheet styrene for a baffle and glued it to the cowl

and had to trim down some of the cylinder heads for the engine to fit properly in

Then I cut down the kit props and drilled a hole for the engine mount
