The office space cubicle thing hurts everyone, man. The fuselage is now glued together and the process of sanding down all the putty burs and cutting in for the tail fairing as well will commence shortly.

Oh man, this kit surely fits the bill here. I think the additional cockpit work will look fine under the glass and the pilot looks good, GMG. I'm not surprised he has a pained expression though sitting atop that safety pin. Makes my eyes water just looking at him :ha:

Ha ha ha ha! Thanks, we shall see.....Actually if memory serves he is from an ancient Revell Me109E I have had laying around here that I have poached parts from over the years. The pilot figures usually end up atop a safety pin as it is way easier for me to paint them.

Haven't pecked away at this thing in almost two weeks; the mojo is rather low at present. Anyways, I managed to tack some of it together and some filler will soon get squooshed in here and there soon enough.

I share your mojo issue as I have ignored mine for a week too, GMG. Back at it today though. Keep up the good fight!!!

Thanks fellas. Various dabs of putty are now around the ventral fairing and jokey holes on the bottoms of the wings for jokey landing gear. I have also since added a strip of scrap plastic and putty against the front of the tail to lengthen and straighten it as per the real thing but I think that is as much plastic surgery as it's gonna get, unless I can also find a proper four bladed airscrew and spinner. Rooting around the spares has yielded nothing usable. Until then the three bladed on it is for now.
