Wasn't it easier to further butcher up the FineMolds kit? It already has those panels as an option. Just thinking...

welcome Slavo and Patrick! As much as I felt bad for cutting into my most fav kit ever, I'd feel worse for cutting into Finemolds. Also the Hasegawa kit has a lot more resin accessories available and I like it more :)

Progressing on the intakes and engines. one of the intakes will be very visible on account of the engine being out of the plane so I had to sand everything down to perfection. That took a lot of time. Also perfection was not achieved. But I will move on. I changed the engine exhausts for the aires parts. They are lacking detail but the shape seems more accurate. I am working concurrently on finishing the panel bays and the intake ramp mechanisms so that the two fuselage parts can finally be glued together but there is a long road before that still.

Working on the access panel bays. Soon I will be able to start filling them up with sweet sweet details. Tried to put the wings on to see the general scale. I will not use the hasegawa wings though. The GWH kit should arrive this week so I'm gonna use the wings from there.

I love the GWH kit! I even think it's better than the FineMolds one and that was awesome already! Can't wait to start mine after some other stuff on my table.

welcome new faces! I am planning to review the kit, loot the wings and drop the box back to the stash lol. serves them right for first making a delta. There is a big commercial opportunity the model companies are missing imo. If they made a kit depicting the first prototypes, everyone would have to buy seven kits each. I know I would :)
