First off, I sprayed all of the main colours; i.e. white, black and aluminium.That done, I spent this afternoon and evening putting the chassis together. A little bit of touch up on the detail makes all of the difference.
One forgets how good Tamiya kits are until a new kit is started. This one has gone together without any effort, filler or sanding. It is a dream of a kit (and I have a second one in Jaegermeister colours so that is good!). the best way to show you the progress is with a few images.
My next step is to build the interior. I am enjoying this. It is much more fun than a short run aircraft!
