Thank you mates!  :-salut

I've continued this afternoon, finishing the engine and gluing it on place. Then I've placed the cover...

Some problem with the rockets: the paint was damaged by my little pliers. Nothing dramatic, but I had to repaint the rockets and they have to dry before I use masking tape... I definitively don't like gloss paints  :-think

The machineguns are finished also: the alu paint was generously covered with oil paint "black smoke". After 1/4h, the oil paint was gently removed with (lots of) Q-tips.

I've used turpentine to wash my two paintbrush used for the oil; it's an odor I don't support :-help - even with an open window (remember, cold weather actually...) so I finished the work for today...

Painting with gloss paints isn't much fun. I was spraying gloss sea blue this morning in my garage and it was -1C. It started alright but then I ended up with some fisheyes when the surface of the model got colder. Spraying some flat Humbrol was no problem at that temperature, though! :-tri

Keep up the great updates!
