Finally I am able to upload to pb to show progress although the plan to complete in a weekend wasnt quite achieved.
 
Box shot and new cockpit.

Moving onto the main fuselage, interior painted hu78 and then halves along with the tail plane cemented together.

The cockpit was cemented in place, now I want sure to add nose weight as the instructions doent suggest this is required but ive added appox 10g held in place with blutac. One thing to bare in mind when adding is the nose intake goes back quite a way down into the fuselage so you have to be thining aheah when loading the nose with the weight.

Ready for airbrushing her NM finish. Firstly I airbrushed SnJ's spray metal aluminium on all parts.

Ive then rubbed on added PJ's polishing powder to selected areas to try and get the appearance of weatherd and stained metal.

Meteoric progress by my standards!

 

I do like Heller kits and this looks like being another goody  :)

Nice finish HT. Always loved the "barrel", seems to have a character all of its own, and a pretty good jet in its time! Well done on finishing and doing it so quickly, puts some of the rest of us (me) to shame.

Thanks Guys, time seems to creep up on you doesnt it. Was hoping to fit in a Gripen as well but the other GBS have started will have to fit it in elsewhere.

Nice job! I'd never heard of this plane until the GB, now I naturally want to make one too. Love the shape.
