Thanks Marko.... Just having some trouble fitting the forward and rear fuselage together, obviously I've done something wrong.🤔

Lots of cleaning up and sanding to do now, I'll put her away so the glue can work its magic, and then start working on the B-25 again.

Fantastic cockpit indeed. Never knew there were Greek F-5s with different seats. I assume the ex- Dutch NF-5s retained the original seats?

Thanks Erik, yeah I think so.

I'll need to do a fair amount of weathering on this bird to make her look like she does in the pic.

Very nice, one of my favourite types, plus I've got the same kit to build so watching with interest!

Looking great Michael. Indeed you need a lot of weathering, the Agean sun is killing!

Thanks ForestFan & Erik... All I need to do is paint the anti-glare panel and exhaust nozzles, and the lighter shades of grey here and there.
