The nose section is attached, and filled, and sanded, and reshaped... Before...

And after. :) There will be plenty of "natural" oil canning btw:

This is a little bit more overall. The white is Tamiya White Putty, everything esle is 4 types of molten plastic :). The kit plastic is quite covered, but that`s how to change the shape...

The cockpit is done. Pilot and seats are in, HUD is on, and the canopy is prepped as well. But first here are some pics from the making of the cockpit :)) YEah it`s finally time to post them:

And after...

It`s not that visible that the canopy is dimmed, cause of the sunlight, but it is:

Btw the rudders are glued too. Now some sanding of the seamlines of the lower aft fuselage, and some silhouette photos will be following...

She's prepped 4 paint :) What a sight underneath, mhh?... Gotta give it a good soapy wash before that. Just check out all the white spots, which is from the white putty to fill the smaller imperfections. All the major conversions are from the darker colors. A couple of pics from the top and bottom, and a couple from the side:

It's looking the part now that a coat of paint is on.

I know you say it's only a thin primer coat, but it'd pass for a weathered tactical scheme as it is.
