Thanks for your nice comments !

 

Here are the last pictures, as i have finished it today.

 

The MDC spinner and the propeller with the white double band :

As i cant choose if i should make it with the canopy open (nice to show the cockpit) or closed (better to preserve the nice lines of the aircraft), i've made a custom micro hinge for the canopy.

I have to modify a bit the canopy (i have carved a groove in the thickness of the clear part), quite risky, but i have an extra canopy from another kit, so i have another chance if i have destroyed it.

The hinge is made of brass micro tube (0.6mm) with an axe made of 0.4mm nickel rod. The tube is cut in 3 parts, two small parts at the extremities, glued to the fuselage, and the center part glued to the canopy. It was a paint to make it functional, as moving it was often leading to brake the glue. But with enough cuting of the canopy part, it now works great ! And it is not so noticeable from the outside. (the real stuff also has this kinf of hinge, visible from the right side).

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Here are the quickboost exhausts, far better from the kit ones. The kit ones can be nice, but you have to carve all the exhaust tubes, so i prefer use resin ones, it's less time consuming.
