Aft Fuselage windows....Measure nine times cut once kinda thing.  The actual window is slightly smaller as it has a thin circular frame around it. which will be accomplished with a mask.

So.....back to it.   Cheers.

Hello,

 I’m glad you are doing this project. About a year ago I finished a similar build, but instead of resin, I used a PCM Spit to mate with the Tamiya one.

Needless to say, it was a pain to fit but I am happy with the result.

 

Sorry, it is a bit dusty.

Thanks for the offer Barney...I might just do that after the bull work and we get a bit more into them.

Cheers.

Thanks bud. I am looking forward to your build, as I was not gutsy enough to tackle two at the same time.

I usually never finish a model that I start as OOTB, somewhere along the way I start to add goodies.

I can’t wait for more of your Griffons!
