Got the masking off the canopy and the tails fitted this evening after work. A little cleanup around the black cockpit framing needed but very minor.

Calling this one done. Tidied up the cockpit framing, added the canopy details and weathered with some AK pencils.

As always, thanks to all who commented/followed the build. Was a tricky sod in areas, but I'm pleased with the final result.

Cheers and stay safe

Great look to the finished product Dave. It looks realistic and you nailed the randomised dirt and wear patterns. So easy to get wrong, it's heart warming to see it done right πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘
