Washed and test fitting. Everything is well fitted, and looks clean , so far..

Did some of this today, as well..Some cutting and tamiya epoxy fill on minor air bubbles and voids..

These lovely Engine details are all buggered up with resin balls!

Those are missles you’re also looking at..

Much better..

More dry fitting..

And problems.. the back piece, which holds the engine nozzles is a bit oversized . Once nice, tight joints between the lateral thrusters and the main fuselage are now huge gaps, I don’t want to deal with filling..

Though there’s not a lot of tolerance,  I’ll trim the edges of the back plate and lose some details. But I doubt it’s going to be noticeable with all the nozzles installed and the lateral engines attached tightly.

..And the details are lovely!

Speed brakes on the underside fit so perfectly snug, they hold themselves open. Though it looks cool , I think they should be turned with the circles facing in. The underside sensor pod is a softer resin and, seemingly rougher around the edges than everything else..

Trimmed the back piece..glued vertical stabilizers on and some more test fitting..the side thrusters fit much better now..

Again, the speed brakes(one test fitted proper side out) will need a little sanding but this one fits perfect  out of the baggie.

Great project, I never realized just how nice this kit is.  Your pictures really show the amazing detail.  To think that I missed out buying one not too long ago from a MW member that offered it directly to me.  Regrets, but I won't make the same mistake again.  :bigshok:
