That's coming along nicely - the cockpit walls look well detailed. Well done.

Kind regards,

I had to look twice at the

Laser cannon for the backseater.

Then realised it's a sighting device!

I have one in my stash of these, however I plan to do mine as an A model. Do have the needed parts from the A, different engine parts and propeller plus decals.

That's not a laser cannon that's a photon torpedo launcher ;)

Great work. This plane has such a cool shape (even if it wasn't all that aerodynamic).

Hello chaps :) this would be almost my last post.My plane is almost finished I just need to add exhaust do smoke marks etc and put a coat of varnish.a

But I have a small problem.What kind of varnish should I use Matt or satin??Building this model was a pleasure.

Here are pictures

Cracking job there!!!

matt would look lovely on that (matt will still have a very slight shine - due to natural refraction of light) - satin would be too 'showroom' I think (just my opinion).

Looking very nice Pawel :coolio:

All the pictures of the 240 that I have found on the internet look like it has a matt finish; but it's really up to you, I think a satin coat would look okay too B)

Cheers,

Stew
