Thanks guys. The next episode will, hopefully, be in 1080p i.e. much better video quality and faster focusing. Fingers crossed.

Hello everyone.
Episode 4 is ready and you can watch it on the link:

https://youtu.be/DwWOEVQyjnk

Episode 4 of the video build series will take you trough the various steps of masking and painting the scale model. The FAA scheme plus the invasion stripes and the red nose add up to a very colorful airplane. To get even better results several layers of effects will be added in the painting stage to aid the subsequent weathering.
Enjoy!

Nicely done and much appreciated. I'm currently building the Eduard F6F-3, and your videos couldn't have come at a better time. Thanks for taking the time to make them, and post them.
