The (widened...) DB engine is glued in place, it's been PSR'd within an inch of its life, the tailplanes are glued on and the canopy's on as well. Masking of the transparencies will happen tomorrow and then the first primer coat.

Followed no doubt by at least one more PSR session, maybe more.....:(



It doesn't look as ugly as I expected to be actually, certainly not as elegant as the original all French version, but not all that bad.
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! :)

All the PSR and priming is done now, and I've got the first, and second, AND third colour coat on!  :banghead:

The underside yellow was a feature of the OKB's test aircraft at Rechlin, but this will need at least one more coat before I'm satisfied.

This Halfords yellow doesn't cover very well at all. :(



The new nose blends quite well into the D520's fuselage, apart from that HUGE air filter!
