Thank you James, build is on hold until next week. There's still a lot to do and I have great expectations, so I hope you'll find the rest interesting!

Thanks Spanjaard. This kit is tricky sometimes, and it takes a lot of dry fitting all along, but, overall, I guess it will be a nice addition to my finished projects.

Great work so far 👍

Looks great!
On mine, the fitting was a bit off. The starboard stab was lower and one wing was further forward than the other.
Indeed takes a bit of dry fitting and fiddling, but still makes a good model.

I Startet this little kit yesterday evening. The Cockpit is mainly done, i added some details like wires, hoses an a canvas floor around the control lever.
I hope to attach the dashboard in the next Session and start to fill and sand the little gap between the fuselage halves.
Cheers

Nice job si far !
I enjoyed this kit, but extra care is needed on the huuuge gap behind the canopy. Exhaust parts can be also a little bit tricky. My WIP, if needed:

Thx mates. I hope to post another update this weekend.

A little sunday evening update, I finished the base yesterday and soldered the photoetch hatches today. Filling and sanding needs some more time.
Hope to get this done in the next days so I can start painting next weekend.
