And where we're at this evening...

Entry doors in place. These were going to be in the open position, but client would like to be open and close canopies, so fitted closed now.

 

Rear is based on a spare front door, cut to size, twisted to match fuselage profile and new 'hinge' added from stretched sprue.

 

Very happy with fit at this stage - need to get some paint on:

Dummy red 'gun squares' masked and sprayed - but I think they're a little dark - so will re-mask and touch in:

Nose underside glossed ready for black aircraft code 'V':

Dry assembled prop (excuse dog hair - not noticed when I took photo - but had just stroked the dog!).

 

Some decals to go on the spinner - and everything will be matted down - but starting to look busy:

Quick Sunday evening update - Sqn markings on - remember - this is a tribute to a specific early Mk.IX operated by 133 Sqn - it is not a replica of the original!!

Cowl fit not the best - but should be able to tweak a little on final assembly.

Some silvering on the Tamiya decals to get rid of (these really weren't very good) - then some very light panel line 'weathering'.

Looks like my website platform (Wix) has had a bit of an 'update' - and was automatically creating .webp image link extensions - so photos I posted earlier may have broken on some devices.

 

I've reloaded them and they should now work - if anyone couldn't see them earlier!
