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.
