  1. Detail of the nose. I'm going to close the opened triangulars on the side of the cockpits. I have no pics of them open.
  2. Model assembled and wet sandpapered with 1200 and 200 grid. It still need to be claned with water and kitchen paper.
  3. Thanks Eugene! The air intakes received some modifications, too. I opened some panels, drilled some holes, add some pieces and add a soft cover made by Magic Sculpt putty.
  4. The side metal arches on the side stairs are too big. I reduced the thickness using my cutter as a file, then drilling some holes. There are some damn extraction pins on them that must fix!
  5. I simulated some raised panels on the nose masking the area and adding liquid putty.
  6. The snubber gauge is positioned on the port fuselage (left side) only, not on the right. You must sandpaper it. Please note the lower trapezioidal antennae has a concave surface, so liquid putty is mandatory for solve the issue.
  7. Since there is only one big air scoop on the right side, you must fill the hole on the left side of the upper fuselage.
  8. On the right side of the fuselage there is a small air scoop but the kit base is too big IMHO, so I removed it.
  9. Here is the same piece with improvements: drilled some small holes (simulating screws) and two strenghtening plates. I used liquid Gunze putty with paper masks.
  10. The IFR probe with some improvements. Here is the kit piece.
  11. Dear Collin, the kit is almost done. I'm going to paint it this week end. I had those problems but fixed with my trustworty file in some points of the fuselage. Thanks anyway! Maurizio
  12. Starting improving the MLG drilling some small hles and adding some wires for tubes.
