Thanks :)) Here is unusuall continue of this build- adding side decals. I know they have to be done last, when kit is painted but I have no other choice. Last time I am low of concentration so I can make mistake when make demarcation line for bottom grey paint. So I decide to apply decal and this decal will be guide to me. This mean great care during work, strong coat of protective varnish over it, very low tack protective tape and great care of paint mixture, to avoid leaks under tape and smudging of decals...

So if you do this kit, don't do like this, it is very personal approach  :-dal :-roll

Wow, I didn't think that would work! Great patience to keep the decals in place during the masking removal!!!!

Thank you :)) In this step is present painting of grey parts. To regret, I have no clue from photos what is the color of the leading edge, dark grey or some kind of dark metal...  :-dal

Leading edges of engine intake is polished metal on real plane and to reproduce it in 1/144 scale is need some tricks... I pour silver paint in jar, put part there, lift it, put on protective paper which soak any extra of paint and after minute let em aside, to dry... finaly placed ;)

my conclusion looking the pictures that it would be most probably natural metal,not painted
