Thanks guys for the kind words! really apreciate :)

 

I have glued the cockpit to the right side of the fuselage, fit is fine for resin kit, problem is the supplied nose weight which needs some correction to fit into the nose. Based on Andy and Chris recommendations I added extra weight under the cockpit and behind the engine bulkheads.

Supplied vinyl masks are again smaller and it looks that age and different storage conditions degrading their usability. I think that kabuki masks are more durable IMHO.

Nevermind I will fix it :)

fuselage halves glued together, the main parts were twisted a little and the vertical stabilizer used to have wrong angle

so I cut the back of the fuselage and corrected it

This is looking great, I must admit that faced with the twisted fuselage problem I probably would not have been brave enough to cut the tail off and put it back on straight, but you made a fine job of it, and the cockpits look fantastic.

 

Cheers
