    I got a little carried away on this project by spending more on aftermarket resin and PE parts than I did on the kit. I scratched the compartment behind the cockpit, and later all that became available in resin of course. The nose gear is metal and I would never do that again as I have to periodically straighten it out as the weight of the model tends to bend it.

    2 attached images. Click to enlarge.

    What after market landing gear set did you use? BTW Great looking model!

    Jack, nice job, why not post it over in the headlines with more pictures. It looks like you did a really nice job on this.

    Amazing detail. Well done!

    I’m almost afraid to ask what the engine nozzles look like! It looks like you went totally nuts with this kit! I know there’s a little “stuff” behind the seat OOB, what does it look like now that you’re done with it? I agree with Walt, more pictures please!

    Yep….more pics are definitely needed here….(especially after telling us about all the after-market). What we can see looks outstanding.
    And I know whatcha mean about spendin’ more for “extra goodies” than the kit cost. That’s primarily why I don’t generally do it unless it’s an obvious feature that will stick out like a sore thumb when finished. 9 times outta 10, ya can’t see where all that money went anyhow.
