The gear door upgrades are really great gives the model so much extra detail in this area.

Props are done! I put down a layer of Alclad, then Mr. Surfacer. A couple of passes with the Flexi-file on the leading edges to give them a little wear.

I put Tamiya Nato black over the titanium and salt on the cowl rings; the result was very close to what I'd hoped.

Next up is the landing gear; I'll probably just clean those up well, then I can get this bird on its feet.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - and it's a train. Those exhaust runners to the collector ring. I haven't come up with any great ideas on how to tackle those.

 

That's it for now, thanks for looking in! I appreciate all the kind comments.
