It would be boring if we all built the Revell kit.

I am away from home on hols for the next week or so, but I brought some model work with me, and am happy to report that I have fitted a spare cockpit tub in the Plastyk Hunter, after much hacking. Can't do photos from here; will catch up later.

Yee-ha!

David

Catch-up photos:

'Foreign' cockpit tub inserted and fitted. I have decided to use the Airfix canopy which requires the Plastyk cockpit aperture to be extended rearwards. The Plastyk canopy has a 90-degrees vertical windscreen frame.

And here is the nosewheel well scratchbuilt.

Hopefully I can make some better progress now that I am back home (but not rested! I need a rest!)

Cheers,

David

Glad you had good holiday. Nice job on the cockpit. The nose of that ZTS mould looks a bit bulbous.

Yes, the middle section of the nose will require some delicate slimming.

And here we are approaching the moment of truth.

Cheers,
