Thanks Chris.
I did a bit to this today.  Got the rudders and elevators attached to the tails.

That's one SERIOUS exhaust there, worth a couple of hundred horse-power at least.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Well it needs to be large as the bypass air from the Pegasus exits through it along with the exhaust gases when it isn't needed to blow round the rotor.

Masked this and had another go at painting the top half white.
Much more satisfactory results this time.  Mainly because I used acrylic and brushed it on.

You may hail it if you like.  Just don't look too closely at the finish.  This is going to need some very gentle and carefull polishing if I am going to gloss clear it.

Painting continues.  I am applying thinned coats of gloss white acrylic (Vallejo).  IMO this gives the smoothest finish with a hairy stick but it's taking a while to get even coverage.

In the meantime I have moved on to the cockpit and the rotor.

Rather than add big tip jet thingos I have gone subtle and settled for just cleaning them up and adding nozzles from a Gundam detail up pack.

Having sanded all the lovely rivets off the rest of the thing I am determined to keep them on the rotor.

Wings and tails painted.  I got the sandpaper effect again.  It polished off OK on the fuselage so hopefully it'll do the same on these parts.
I think it is due to spraying hot paint (warmed in a bucket of hot water) in a cold and damp atmosphere.
I have also primed the front and rear cowlings from the nacelles.  I may do these in Alclad Chrome.  Or at least try to do so.  It also might not like the ambient conditions down there.
White is nearly there.  One or two more thinned coats should do it and then I can unmask.  I have the decals sorted (from one of my few 1/72 airliner kits - Brad C knows what it is) but as they are designed for clear windows and I filled and paintd over those on the 'dyne I have had to print some decals to go under them.

White paint finished and masking removed.  Oversplosh cleaned off.
Worked on the cockpit today.  It's a bit bare OOB so i'm adding some bits and pieces.  I'm not sure if i'll retain the Airfix pilots or use a couple of PJ Productions examples.  I'll have to see how visible everything is through the "glass".
