It's incredible how little this thing is seen "in the flesh", and the amount of details you put into it! :worthy: :clap:

 

Can't wait to see how the side doors turn out - meanwhile I'm working on an updated versione of my vacformer... :winkgrin:

Looking good Silvano.  I'm not sure if you know you still have it to do or if the Airfix instructions are wrong, but don't forget that the Orange Crop aerials (the panels on the nose, main undercarriage pylons and near to the tail boom) should be a very dark satin grey/near black

Wow! The Fox and the Cat at work together.

Top modeling in northern Italy.

Happy Phase 2.

Fair enough.  We didn't have  covers when I was flying them, just a very nice polished wooden ceremonial one for the nose array!

Unbelievable.... :gobsmacked: I keep saying that, but having actually vacformed that door myself, I know how tiny it is, and this level of detail you are putting in is just mind-blowing :worthy:
