The Hurricane seems to be progressing nicely as well.

More progress, wings are together and these fit really well, unlike some other bits.

Cockpit is together, rear seats in though you wont see much of them. Will have to use another seat for the front as the only 2 main seat pans in the kit and one of them was loose. Stuck 10 grames of weight over the front wheel well. Seams will need sorting on those tanks.

In case you are wondering if some of the parts look a little rough its because they are, there is a great deal of flash on some parts and its like carving them out.

Not seen that much flash on a kit in ages. What you’ve got there isn’t flash, it’s bonus sheet styrene, you should keep it, you might find a use for it!

I did read in another thread where flash makes good "gloop"  filler. :)

Cockpit still needs the details picked out, and the front seat needs full painting, wings now complete with engine fronts and exhausts. Fit on these was not the best but nothing a bit of sanding did not fix. I suspect the wheel wells I fitted slightly to far out board, though they fitted into the slots on the wing, and TBH the instructions were not a lot of help.

Looking good Julien, from what I gather you could be in for some fun and games when you get to putting the fuselage together.

Test fit so far seems OK.

Cockpit is glued in one side and the fuselage fits fine. However when test fitting the cabin top/canopy part the forward instrument panel is about 1.5mm too high. 

 

Will need some shaving down for the big top part to fit.

Managed to get the cockpit in and the fuselage closed up. Putty time now as quelle surprise it does not fit. The panel lines on the left and right dont line up either so they will have to be re done. A good 1.5mm taken of the top of the instrument panel as well to get the clear insert to fit. Substantial weight added behind the cockpit as well.
