The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.
That looks very familiar! I made this kit a few years back, from memory it just floated together. I found painting all those propellers "character building" to say the least. And yes it will chew through the Alclad (and masking tape!) but I found it a great opportunity to try the different undercoats to achieve different shades of NMF - eg gloss black for wing leading edges. There is a really good photo walk around on the internet of an example at a UK air show which has much better reference for colours and patterns than the miniature version you get with the kit - I'll try and find it again if you like - not sure I can be of any assistance as you probably have this well under control

Any resources you have especially to differing panel colour would be very much appreciated!! thank you!
