Evening all! The last bit of detailing before getting some paint down is on the rear wheel bays. Not bad ootb:

But definitely more interesting with some stretched sprue, plasticard and thin wire add:

Bit more to do on this side then same treatment to the other wheel bay plus tidy up and add a few wires on the undercarriage itself to finish. Cheers, Sam

I'm calling the first wheel bay done, now on to the second once I've replenished supplies of thin copper wire...

Managed to make a pilgrimage to Duxford at the weekend as well. Key here was the 5k 80th Anniversary BoB "dash" they were hosting in the morning which got my better half interested - after a successful run around the air field we had a very enjoyable couple of hours in the museum, so much so that I've had a request to build a Vulcan or Blackbird next!

This I approve of! Vulcans are the best!

Thanks gents, afraid progress is glacial at the moment with real life and work not allowing much modelling time but nearly there with the second wheel bay and have started adding more detail to the undercarriage. Update later this week hopefully!

Still slow progress here... landing gear nearly done then finally some paint?!?

 

Before adding fiddly bits:

After,  with thin copper wire, bits of stretched sprue and plasticard used to busy things up (starboard gear still needs wires...):

 Thanks for dropping in!

What's this, some paint?!? I laid down a first coat of Mr surfacer 1000 this weekend and now touching up a few rough bits, mostly around the cockpit, with filler then more sanding. Overall really pleased with how it looks, got to love an F14!
