Answered THAT question.  I can't! Never worked with this type of media, [stickers] and Tamiya has been a first for me in a LOT of ways. The stickers are out.  I'm going to buy a set of fabric and PE parts in Nov. and the extra Parts for the Zuike-Mura  Do 335 A-0 also, including White metal landing gear struts, guns etc.  The BIG ED package arrived today, and I should finish the front and rear bulkheads and cage assembly should be finished today.  Pix When done!

Ok.  The stuff from Volks arrived, and I've already put it with the models that they belong to.  Boy, the people at Zoukie-Mura really are INTO the planes they produce!  They make manuals about the planes, WITH COLOR PICS so you can paint a bunch of stuff that isn't on the web!  I've bought the Dornier Do 335 A-10 [two seat radar version of the Do 335 A-0] which will be released on the 18th of November, but I've already paid for it. I will buy the extra parts the first of December.  The Manual I got with the delivery today the CEO of the company details how they researched the plane and details that ALL OTHER model companies leave out.Zoukie-Mura is my new favorite Model producing company. here's from the HOBBYBOSS P-61 B today. Not finished yet...

HB P-61 seatbelt harness parts for the pilot and Radar/Radio gun operators,  You can't see it very well, but the triangular ends of the long straight parts of the seatbelts here in the pic have just been added to these parts of said seatbelts. next, these will be added to said seats. Tiny tiny stuff!
