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.

Hi guys, Thanks for the great comments. Much appreciated.

I haven't done an awful lot on this. I found a problem with the Flightpath set in that it was for the 1985 Revell GR1 tornado not the 1994 retool. So most of the set is incorrect. (mainly size)

So have decided to order Flap and slat set. And the resin Speed brakes. To follow will be Airwaves Seats.

So in the pics you can see the the speed brakes installed in the fuselage. I the made the rear fin and cleaned it up.
I have also made the wheels up. I have also placed the front radar equipment in place.

Chris

Thanks Guys. Appreciated.

Today I stuck the two rear halves of the Fuselage together. Didn't have much of the bad fit I was expecting. Used very minimal White putty. Sanded down and most was gone by the time it was smooth. Just need to scribe the panel lines in at the rear as they have none on the kit.

Also added some wiring to the nose wheel bay.

Chris

BigGrin All looks good to me. The main reported bad fit area is when you join the nose assembly to the rear assembly.
