After the construction of the padded panels, and seats, today was the day to fix on their sites, as you can appreciate the panels behind the front corners are round, which makes it very difficult to build because they are vulnerable to the holes for the buttons and lines, what happened to me have broken the first panels, to try to force them to bow. however given the first layer of paint, to tune the doors at the end will take two more layers, finally, is really painting the most thankless part to do, but will have to be made, here I leave some photos of the panels and seats almost completed, I hope you enjoy and appreciate this work.

Final construction of the panels and seats. finally those parts of the carriage are practically completed, there are 15 panels and three seats, however will only be fixed into place after painting made so as to not damage or get ink on the panels and seats today gave a first ink layer yellow, but frankly ran me very badly, painting is the most thankless part to do, because there is no mathematical formula to make this work, where time itself has some influence, though I already be familiar with the inks tamiya that I think are the best quality, there are many factors that must be very well combined so that everything goes well, the air pressure, typically 2 bar, the mixture with solvent, temperature, airbrush clogging, and distance between the airbrush and the parties to pintar.aqui are the photos of the work done now, hope you like to see.
