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).

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.
