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