Here is a couple of pictures of what I managed yesterday.
Starboard armour panel attached. I still have to scribe the panel lines.
Early panels had four sections, but later ones had only three.
Couple of shots of the cockpit. Sorry they are not very clear, but I forgot to take some pictures before I attached it to the fuselage.
I will be drilling open the hand holes on the cowl.
Here I have drilled the holes for the attachment hooks for the shoulder straps.
Next jobs are,
start on the u/c bay - there are a few things missing from here that I will do with card.
Outer Mk108's - the lower access panel needs a long bulge and there is a small rectangular hole next to the inner edge. You'll see what I mean when I post pictures.
Scribe fuselage panels - There are a couple of panels to be scribed on the starboard side just below the cockpit.
Attach engine - I will be adding some wiring at the front of the engine before I paint it and glue it in place
Complete the fuselage gun cowl. - I need to finish off the panel before attaching it to the fuselage.
Hopefully I will add some more pictures later in the week once these jobs have been done.
I am getting into the groove with this kit so I should manage to get quite a lot done over the next week.
I was a bit concerned about the time I will have to get this done and have a go at the 1/32 Mistel S3C but it looks like I may just manage it. But time will tell.
