Replace them with photo-etch ladders and fill them in with Krystal Klear later perhaps?

Now??? When the tower is assembled, glued and painted? I'm sorry, but it's not an option. It's either painting or leaving it as it is ... But thank you!

Hi,

Sorry, but I was a bit busy in the past few days. As you have already assemblied the superstructure, leave the windows as they are :smallsmile:
But you can paint them to black at your next project. The replacing with PE part is also possible, but it depends on how skilled your hands are.

Gabor, big, big thanks! :big_grin: But I made a bit of a black washer this afternoon. Little. It seems to me that it is better and will remain so.
I will try to do railings tomorrow, but I'm afraid I will not make it. It's so small and delicate. See ... :thumbs_up_1:

You can also use a mechanical pencil (0.5mm) to "colour in" the windows. The slight shine of the graphite gives them a subtle reflectivity that resembles glass without making it too obvious.

I painted both sides and made a hangar deck. As far as I could, I tried to show that something is happening there ...

I did not build anything on the other side because it will be invisible anyway. Maybe it is worth doing something at the entrances to the hangar deck? Any ideas?

Well, it's not a problem you didn't build the hangar walls. But even in this case please next time paint the areas around the hangar doors. The unpainted plastic will not be really invisible after you place the flight deck. When the elevator is up there is nothing at the entrance, just the safety railings. But if you place the elevator in lowered position, you have plenty choices:

According to the suggestions of more experienced people, I painted the inner walls of the hangar and tried to improve the windows.
After using Wash AK and an automatic pencil, the tower windows look like this ...

I apologize for the quality of the photos, I do it with a tablet, but I can not deal with it :smallsmile:

I complete the elements of the model on both sides and there is not much left...
Image
Image

I have to build this gap under the deck and cover it. Trumpeter folded it very badly and I need to fill it.
Image
Image
Image
These delicate discoloration of the deck will disappear under standing aircraft (20 pcs) and other equipment
Slowly, but inevitably the most difficult moment is coming: decal on board. I always have a problem with it

If you have problems with the decals, then paint the deck stripes. Use only the numbers

Yes, Gabor, this is a good solution, but I will try with decals, see how it will come out. Thanks! Greetings

Slowly something is going on ... It was supposed to be a bit of rust, I do not know if it did not go out too much and was it too much smudged?

And this is a set of vehicles, all from the Trumpeter box

Any priceless comments ... :big_grin:

There is a lack of railings, rigging, few details and of course, airplanes and vehicles. However, it is slowly starting to be similar to Kitty Hawk ...

Kitty was a big challenge for me, but I managed to bring it to a happy final. I want to thank all those who helped me and suggested, especially for Gabor. I assure you that even if I did not use someone's suggestion (because of financial or other reasons), they were for me some hint and advice, suggesting a different solution.
Greetings
