I have the same kit in my stash and I was just planning to start it. Your work on this kit gave me a lot of inspiration!
Which tool have you used to impress the rivets?
What is the meaning of figure 5 (the canopies?)

The rivets were made using the Voyager models riveting and scribing template, as well as my home-made riveting template. The kit was partially started by previous owner, so I had to fill and sand all the rivets and lines he had made, and scribe a new ones...
There are 2 canopies provided in the kit (open and closed). Both have completely inaccurate profile. So I took the two-piece canopy and sanded some plastic off to correct the profile (as much as it was possible). The result you can see on that picture... it's still not perfect, but it's much better.

I have the same kit in my stash. Have used any after market accessories like pilot seat?

No, I haven't used any aftermarket accessories, only the PE parts that came with the kit, and a lot of scratchbuliding.
