Thanks for the nice comments guys. Much appreciated.

I have started by filling in the big void in the intake nozzles that revell decided to put there. I used milliput as didn't have anything else to hand until i get some more filler next week.

Once dry and sanded I then smoothed it down and built up the intakes and smoothed off where necessary. I

I the proceeded to mark out the top of the intake and mark out and whittle down the plastic to fit the brass etch so it blended into the plastic and not sat on top.

I glued in position and filed and sanded then re-scribed a couple of panel lines.

Until next time 😎
Chris

Thanks guys. Much appreciated comments.

I started by spraying the insides of the intakes in Light grey.

I then made a start on the exhaust nozzles. I removed the feathers and replaced with PE ones and thinned out the wall of the nozzle. I then added PE turbine blades to the exhausts.

I then thinned the thrust reverser bucket actuator covers then deepened the the panel lines on the reverser buckets.
