My friend Pascal (who is building a 1/1 Kiebitz...) convinced me to give a last try to the recce version; using miliput to correct all the defaults of the nose.
Why not???
Still in progress...

BR nose sanded. Now I have to re-engrave the edges of the door trap... After that, painting of glossy black on the windows and we will see if it's good enough to continue with a BR...
