Hi Ian, this is a beautiful kit and mine went together pretty well. Looking forward to your build. The boom configuration and the windshield are totally different from the J's

Cheers,
Richard

Now got the cockpit finished and fitted.

Also started the booms, they lack any internal detail, so I’ve made some grills for them from some engine cover grills from the Scorpion tank I did a bit ago.

Hi Ian
Rather late to this - sorry. Looks a nice kit. Excellent job on the cockpit. The radio wiring, seatbelts and intake grills were definitely worth the effort. Look forward to the painting. Are you going with the box art? I like the look of the wavey line between top and bottom :smiling2:

Done some work on this one, using the hairspray technique, but I think I’ve put too much on.

Think I may need to start again with the painting.
