Wings got the same treatment. I almost messed up and sanded off the wing tip trailing edge lights, but caught myself in time.

Thanks, Peter. As I said, it's become an annual tradition with me to start a new kit every year on the 31st, and it's always a kick.

OK, with everything dry now, time for the test fit. I really don't know why I bother though, the Revell kit parts fit so well, that the wings can easily be attached later, after all the painting and decaling is finished.

Straight as straight can be. Perhaps I just lucked out, Kev. The one problem that I've consistently had with these 767 kits, is the inboard trailing edge flaps are always bent, I think they have been on every Revell 767 kit that I've worked on.

And the window puttying begins. This will obviously need another coat, maybe more.

I've somewhat arbitrarily decided that these GE engines are not so bad, and that with a little effort, they can be made to look quite acceptable. To that end, I've cut the forward portion of the cowls off, so that I can more easily eliminate the nasty seam on interior. While doing this, I cut one too short (the one on the right) and ruined it, so I'll have to scavenge one from one of my other kits.

Looking good!  The Revell kit has "General Whitney" engines - neither P&W nor GE, but a little (maybe) closer to P&W.

 

You also need to fill in the odd depression where the horizontal stabs mount.  Not a feature of real 767s.

The kit represents the relatively rare non-ER 767-300 (104 built).  It has the small forward cargo hatch in the belly, which needs to be re-scribed to represent the bigger hatch on the -300ER.

That's not ruined, that's just in need to a bit of scrap plastic and filler.

Perhaps. I'm saving it, regardless. In the meanwhile, I sourced one from another kit. Slightly different color, but it'll be fine.

Agreed. I wish I'd thought of it when I built mine!

Too bad I can't claim credit for the process, as I snatched it from the AM guys, that generally just recast the kit engines anyway.

I didn't know about the hatch, so thanks for that. As to the odd looking stab mount area, I found these delightful shots (photo credits to Jodie Peeler) over at airlinercafe that shows some sort of flattened indentation in that area, though it does not seem to be exactly the same.

The reason there's a flattened (vs. indented) area there is that the stab pivots up and down.  If it were a curve like the rest of the fuselage there would be huge gaps around the root of the stab when it moved.  The trapezoidal shaped part moves with the stab, but the rest of the stab moves against the side of the fuselage.
