Cockpit interior done. I'm really happy with the result.
Then canopy is closed and nose in place. Looks like a Mirage 5 now  :-love :-love :-love

Thank you friends!

Perfect putty was used between the nose and the front of the fuselage. Then the sensors were positionned. The "mouses" received Tamiya Black Panel Liner.
Now I have to remove excess of glue near the canopy...

Yes it was a possibility... but the lower surfaces will also be camoflaged in 3 Vietnam tones

AK Xtreme Metal day, today:

Exhaust airbrushed with Burnt Metal for the interior and steel for the exterior. And then Aluminium on the wheels, wheel bays, door traps...

Excellent result with those paints.
