Trying to make my mind up on the front, keep it simple and clean with a stubby lazer or add the front stableiser wing thing...

Both look good, but I prefer the stubby look.Great design over all - I love the beaky nose on the fuselage.

I'd wondered when someone would do something like this. :popcorn:

Cheers, I think I'm going with the lazer now.

With the front wing it kind of reminds me of Batman's The Bat from The Dark Knight rises.

I can sort of see what you mean, they are now going to be added to something else.

I was quite surprised how few I managed to find and this a only a Revell kit so I don't feel bad about chopping it to bits... 

 

Made this a single seater now.

Both look good, though I have a hankering for the wing-thingy at the front.

If anything, I'd add triangles of plastic card alongside the cockpit to form intakes on the front of the 'wing'.

Probably with vertical splitters inside.

Or, how about Mosquito type radiator intakes?

On some pictures it reminds me very much of the V-Wing Airspeeder. It was not one of my favourite "legends" ships, but I definitely like this nose much more. I'm curious how it evolves.

Yes I see what you mean. I have added some small wing tips to change the profile and bit more and once the upper winglets go on it should look every different. I'm also sorted the canapé, then I need to fit Laziers, a quick tidy up of a few small bits then to paint the inside.

Now that looks different, and all for the better too.

Masking the canopy, what a pain in the bottom that it is...... I don't think I have ever bothered before but said I was going to use my Chinese airbrush for the entire build.

That's looking so good. Rally like the new engine details, and the skids look just fine.

Have a Hasegawa Aerospace Ground Equipment comming to make a small hanger for it. I'm hope they work out OK for size. 

 

I also have a few different Zvezda figures kicking about I could use.
