Thank you !

Here is some progress, very slow but progress anyway.... Continue to detail the interior but I needed some brake of it so I went rivet counting. First the port side upper wing. It's not well visible on the photos but painting will bring them up more.

Thank you friends !

At first sight the resin intakes fitted well, almost perfect, but when comparing with drawings and photos I founded out it's not. Very not !!! The shape of fuselage changed beyond acceptable so a lot of putty needed to correct it. It's not that big deal considering the putty, but a lot of surface details are gone for good so lot of after work will be needed. Somehow I got the impression that this build will be all about a lot of plus work and not as fun as I thought it will be at the start, but that's it, no turning back

Well, it is on you ;) in past, I sliced kit into pieces and connect it again just to correct length of 0,8 mm (in 1/72 scale). Then I realize if I keep on blueprints and archive photos, I will build just few kits for a whole life. But this is only good way, the same idea of modeling is precise copy of actual object. Hardly we will ever make that, just look at many discusions about painting and markings...
