Good start Jeff ! And its a Trumpeter!! What's the parts count on that kit anyway? Aww man PE is the best! At first its a little tricky but you learn after a little bit just like anything else. If you don't already have one get some PE bending pliers and the superglue in the gel form. There aint nothin worse than trying to install a little PE part with regular super glue. When I built my Eduard Fw190 A8/R2 Royal Class kit there were 6 sheets of that stuff that came in the box.

Example given here:

This is truly a kit for somebody who is LOVE with PE!

I really like the looks of it, but since it was my 1st time I'm trying different glues...they say PBA and I say AH! Gel super glue is best...if I can keep it off my fingers lol

Keep using it you'll come to really like it. The possibilities for true detail are endless. I tried my first PE pieces in 1998 when I first heard of the stuff and it was hit or miss. Then I tried it again in 06 with a little resin to go along with it and again it was a limited success. After I got on model forums early last year and started learning how to work with it I got a little better and nowadays although I still have a lot to learn , I feel a lot more comfortable with it. More often than not pure luck comes into play when installing or bending a piece. Particularly pilots seat belts!!!! Yeesh!

Eduard for the most part is da bomb!!! Every time I've used it it's been right on. All of that PE shown above was Eduard. The kits are really killer! They are coming out with a 1/48 Bf109 G6 next year and I'm all over that like a rat on a cheetoe!!!
