Little more done today .
I have added the intakes ,engine tubes ,wing tips and the front lower section of the fuselage . I left the nozzles of the tubes for now to make painting easier ,Academy have done a nice job here making it easy to slip the nozzles in much later
The fit of the intakes is a bit vague ! ,They do sit in place nicely ,but I recommend putting the Fuselage in place while the glue is still soft so the intakes can be manouvered slightly if needed ,Overall tho it is quite a good fit .
Again ,when fitting the lower front nose section ,its advisable to tape the Fuselage in position ,then glue the lower section to the wings and tape it to the upper fuselage to hold it in position while the glue dries . I think I may need a little filler along the join with the wing ,but I'll see later on .
With the fuselage set in place you can see everything fits as it should ,notice the wing root ,its a nice tight fit and shouldnt require any filler at all
Same with the other side ......
All for now
Thanks for looking.
