A little update.
Today I removed the masking from the nose sensor turret. I then sanded back the clear plastic part to ensure it sat flush with the turret sensor recess. I then gently polished the clear part with gradual finer grades of sanding stick, until I reached the polishing stage (White side of the polishing stick). Within a short time a nice clear glass like surface was achieved.
I also added the missing radome's and ariels off the upper surface.
Next job will be painting the upper surfaces. Thanks for looking,
Kevin

Thanks chaps, most appreciated.
Well today after the nose light sprues have fully set hard, I cut off the excess sprue. I trimmed by scalpel as much of the sprue as I could, then I took some sanding files of differing grades and sanded back the remaining sprue standing proud of the nose contours. Once satisfied that they were as close as I could expect, I took a Polishing sanding stick and did a final sand down before I then used the polishing side (White) to restore the clarity of the exposed clear part.
The result is a clear light cover with a hint of silver inside.
Next job, work on the cockpit.
Thanks for looking,
Kevin

While the pond sets, I have been working on the garden section behind the buttery.
There should be an orchard at the other side of the main buildings.
