    Lovely work Jes, my only critique is that you went just a tad overboard with the dry brushing, you need to apply a careful dark (maybe black) wash again in certain areas, otherwise looking really nice.

    No Marco Its a Kendall cockpit and Brian I think its more the flash of the camera that makes the drybrushing that bright in reality , in normal light it is not that bright. At the moment I am working on the airconditioning of the cockpit, panels opened on the right hand side and also on the cannon. Lot of cutting and sanding and I havent even started scribing the wings yet. Wings will be a challenge, need to replace wheel wells and moving surfaces. marco knows something about it. Had also to replace intakes (one of the photos above shows the new ones seamless).
    I will post more updates as I go along, prob next will be the cannon but to make everything fit is not that easy.

    Nice work Jes & if you were in your Maltese workshop, you should have come & said hello before travelling to your Scottish workshop Twisted Evil

    Alclad Marco...they were not ready on that photo....just showing the overspray/feathering, it took me another day of masking after that to give different shades to the tail planes...

    Marco I spent alot of time masking the camo, with blue tack (but white Smile ...the area I like the most is the cans ,Alclad is superb for metal...the wheel wells , needed alot of work to make them fit, but well worth it...biggest dissapointment is that after all this work , I found out that the gun area in the Verlinden set is not right, but now its too late ,not even Marcus Jellyman realised that...
    photos below explain...

    to be honest its not the gun itself , its the door hinges that are in the wrong position..

    to be honest Marco, I tried to look to improve it a wee bit, but the only thing that I could fit,and look ok ,was the pipe, for the rest it would have looked like a nest....
