Thanks for looking in guys

a little update, have now received the final pack of parts, now the real work begins.
still a few bits to assemble and the cowling needs to be cut open to show the port side of the engine (cowling only primed)
a few little bits of skin to play around with and assemble
tail section has been given a base coat of colour, will get lacquered once the decals are applied.
ive temporarily assembled it to give you an idea what she looks like.

Not long to go now Dan and great shading your doing there.. Cool

With regards to the CA on the canopy... Try leaving it in warm water overnight and then gently remove the residue with a toothpick.

Some very nice work here Dan, shame about the CA on the canopy, I did read somewhere about freezing the part and then it may pick off with a toothpick, not had to try this though so cant endorse it but it cant do any harm to tryBigGrin

It will likely leave a mark of some form, so you may end up having to micro-mesh and polish.
