    @Torben, Mark and Mike, thank you.
     
    First plastic is cut, first glue and PE is applied so it's time for the first update. I started with the cockpit. There is much PE to be applied so there are three kinds of instructions open on the bench. One thing that had to be done was the seat for the gunner.
     
    This is the one out of the box.
     

     
    And this is what it looks when it's done.
     

     
    Quite an improvement I think.
    The sidepanels in the pic below aren't glued yet. First I want to paint everything before assembling the cockpitframe. On the lefthandside you can see some cilinders. I can't find out what these are or what color these cilinders are so if you have an idea....

    As a non-expert on the type, I’d guess that that rack with the cylinders mounted on the side wall holds flares for signalling (recognition colours of the day and such like for when the radio goes u/s).  However, a quick flick though my admittedly meagre library on the type failed to bring up any evidence that it was there at all, so it’s possible that Trumpeter’s designers made it up.  Wouldn’t be the first time a kit manufacturer did that.....

    The nose gear and doors of the F3 is quite different from the srtike version. This is to accommodate the recesses for the missiles. 
     

     
     
     
    I modified the front gear doors by sanding them to shape. The rear door on the GR1 is tapered but not on the F3. To preserve some detail I cut a V-section from it and re-glued it together with a thin plastic card backing.
     

     
     
     
    The nose gear was modified from the kit parts by removing the rear torque-link and making a new one in the front, using the photo as reference. A piece of plastic card was glued in the bay to facilitate the fitting later on.
     
     

     
     
     
    Completed and painted.

    After lurking for a long time ,I thought it was time to start a topic. My English is not (yet) very good but I hope  I can make clear what I mean. So please be patient  
     
    My choice for my first WIP is the Trumpeter Swordfish in 1:32 and I'm using this kit.
     

     
    I also purcased a Biged set from eduard.
     

     
    When I opened the box I saw some nice sprue's but also a sprue with clear fuselage parts. However, I do not intend to use the clear parts because this is hard brittle plastic as you all know.
     


     
    Below is the color scheme  that i want to use.

    Thank you gentlemen, I feel at home already .
    I have a question about the rigging and i hope you can help me. Searching at google doesn't provide a satisfying answer. The rigging contains flying wires and bracing wires. When I look at pictures it seems that the flying wires are metal bars instead of wires. The bracing wires are difficult to see but also seems metal bars. Does anyone know if I'm right or are the wires really wires?
     
    Thanks in advance.
