For anyone still awake - few WIP photos, focusing on metal bits, because resin parts came together without any fuss: The one showing dorsal bleed doors and boundary layer vents: The one showing boundary layer ramp inside intake (that no one will ever notice): The one showing ventral boundary layer vents along gear struts locks in u/c bays. And the one showing tremendous effort on my part - making a cut through the middle of the tail wheel to make it a twin tail wheel.
The Pakistan Air Force's No.1 Fighter Conversion Unit operated FT-5 trainers (export version of the JJ-5) 1975-2012. The kit is very basic having no cockpit and a solid wings with no tabs. With the parts off the sprue you could easily believe this was resin rather than an injection kit.
