Works are still progressing:

The engine must have to be weathered now. and I've begun to glue the parts of the interior of the fuselage but have curiously encountered some fitting problems...  :-eek  :-think

As you can see on the phtos, I've not removed the Microsculpt decals in the cockpit: with the short space; and the light that will be different, not only the difference of the interior/exterior lozenges will be really insignifiant; but that can also represent the "faded" side of the lozenges...

Fitting problems? Top of the fuselage just behind of engine?

Exactly. If you watch the third photo, you will see that I have sanded all the parts intersecting the two half fuselages...

Issue by the same parts, easy to solve :) One big hammer will solve that ;)

Oh yes, it's a nice kit! I have the second kit of the box to build; and I will use it as a trial platform for some HEAVY weathering techniques...

I've weathered the engine with Citadel ink (Chestnut and Black); glued the seatbelts and the seat, then the fuselage is closed - at last...
