Unbelievable paintwork, it’s absolutely immaculate. I wish mine came out like this!

This build is one of the best work in progress report I have seen ever. The aircraft looks awesome especially after the panel wash. The panel wash is my weak point especially wiping excessive wash off with turpentine.  I have ruined many builds during panel wash process. I tried oil, acrylic,  enamel and vallejo washes and all of them ended with disaster. Now I  am using only the aqua (water) colors which can be completely removed any time under the tap water...

Maybe I should give up to use Future/Pledge for gloss coat...

A finished model is only as good as its least-well-rendered-detail, IMHO.

Good observation! I agree and work hard to 'equalise' the rendering of detail on my models, or at least minimise the obviousness of my poorly handled details! Lovely progress by the way...

Update from the Admiralty...

 

The main landing gear struts have been installed and are setting up. Tyre-brake assemblies not installed yet.

 

After a few harrowing moments, i managed to snap the nose wheel into place onto the fork axles. I trimmed down the axle ends that come out of the fork a bit, and fortunately the Airfix plastic had enough spring in it to bend, and not snap.

 

Scratched some paint off the sidewalls of the tyre, so there's a bit of repair work in progress.

 

I will post some pics, once i get her properly on her feet.
