Interesting narrative: who was screaming; you or Mrs Skiny?

 

Also interesting colour scheme choice.  One of the former Thunder City T. 5s was painted gloss black.  

 

Biggest gotcha is likely to be the front section of the ventral tank where it meets the rear section and the tailpipe assembly.  For the latter you might want to remove the locating ribs inside the rear fuselage and/or thin down the front face of the rear bulkhead so that you can push the tailpipes and their "8"-ring fully home.  The airbrake s don't fit very well either, you'll need some thin plasticard behind them to bring them flush with the surrounding skin.
