My first Estes Puma build was a fast build and it came out ok, but I was not happy with it. I decided to build another one, this time I used Balsa sealer for the balsa and the balsa came out smooth. I also used Tamyia masking paint so the edges came out better than the first build. For some reason I really like this kit. Adding the pods after painting was much easier than trying to mask around them like the first build. The Stuka in the background is a 1/48 Revell I build out of the box painted by hand with brush and Testors Acrylic paints.
