I am sure you will do it justice.

Good luck mate!
I assume you know how this kit is, so you know what you are embarking into.

Marius, welcome. I was preparing myself mentally for years but now that I actually see the kits I have to admit that substantial further meditations will be required to ensure progress haha

Welcome Villiers and Maciej

I'm guessing you've checked other's work on these kits on here?, I'm sure they'll give you a heads-up on what to expect?

Good decision at cutting those air vents. Btw, now it's the right time to decide if you also want to drill the large holes for the lights (beneath the air intakes) and attach the clear parts as well. It's tricky, but worth it.

hello and welcome Andy, Marius and Lukasz. Thanks Marius for pointing out those lights - I attempted to drill them out with a passable result.

I am also finishing up the interiors. i chose to open the backseat of 8325 and the 3924 is to be open also - the resin cockpits were distributed and prepared to reflect that but I am still not quite happy with how they turned out. I will leave them for now, the instrument panell will be the most visible and there is not much to do about that save for buying some additional PE parts.

also regarding the surface detail - it is correct and extensive but very pronounded. I did a pass with surfacer to fill it somewhat. i want the planes smoother as they seem in the pictures. that is what i want to focus on with this build. good filling and sanding so that the shape is nice at least, especially around the cockpit
