SITREP:
Image

I've decided to go for Satin for the dark grey fuselage element in the hope it will provide a more weathered/textured effect.
Compared to the Matt I used on the seating area I am not disappointed.
I'm doing the cockpit glass in multiple stages with Tamiya masking tape as there are many panel lines and I am not steady enough with a paint brush.

More soon....

Making the most of half term off work and cracking on with the build.

Blu tack makes up the nose weight, I hope it's enough?!
Image
I found some chocolate coins in the fridge with red netting, I decided to fabricate a mesh doorway between the crew and load bay. I plan to use the green netting on the load ramp.
Image
I just made up the wings and they are heading to the spray booth (cardboard box) more pics soon.
