Three different putties were needed: miliput; Vallejo white putty and AK grey putty... That need to be sanded of course.

Yes but before that I have to add some antennas and to add details in the wheel bays... And I will have few time for modeling until the end of the year.
Hope to begin painting in january ;-)

Sanding finished...
I've also constated that the front wheel will be positioned a little bit too back from the actual location, due to the cockpit floor... No solution for that...
The hole I made on the rear is fully filled but two putties were needed.

Now I have to work on the wheel bays and to add two antennas on the top of the fuselage...

Just guess... on modeling competitions, are there reliable judge to realize all this effort to create authentic and nice kit?

Still working hard on that kit...

First of all, some supplement of putty was needed on the junction between canopy and top of the fuselage... As you can see: miliput, AK grey putty, parfect plastic putty were needed!

I've also made from scratch the UHF and Tacan antennas (not present in the kit box) and made some work on the wheel bays.

Me crazy...

I've spent a half hour to realize the two little sensors in front of the cockpit... And to put them in place!
Then, two PE parts are used to represent some cables in the front wheel bay
