Thank you one and all for your nice coments,,,,,and no I am not going to sand the char off for a couple of reasons,,, one the pieces are to fragile and will break off, two I planed it this way as a piece that will hang on the wall in a picture frame with painted wood backing it will give some contrast to the piece, THANKS AGAIN All

Wow! I am again late to the party. It is a nice kit and you are doing a great job building it! I wouldn't recommend removing the char at least with power tools. This plywood (or not plywood perhaps) so fragile. I broke a few frames while cleaning ribs assembling similar kit.
