Bit of turret action. The paint tin is for scale.  8)
The fuselage and wings will contain the wiring and I need to make myself a build plan for this. That's why I'm building the 'peripheral' parts first.
Don't know if that makes sense but I always need a plan even if its a bad one...

Now for some Tail action.... That doesn't sound right.  :o
Anyway, there is a problem with the horizontal tail planes. If you build them as per instruction, you end up with a top with a top and a bottom with a bottom. So I simply cut off the locator pins and to two large pins on the stub and carefully stuck them together. Nothing too hard and it doesn't seem to effect the dihedral.
Thanks go to 'Nigel's modeling bench' youtube channel for the heads up on the tail fault.

And some more.
I do like a Big Bulbus Tire... :P
So far the fit of the parts is very good.

Got the Electronics working today. How hard can it be...
This just helps me work out a build sequence.  I will swap them over to the kit as I build.
Exciting   ;D

Here's the rear turret almost built. I intend to add some metal gun barrels later.
The seat belts need weathering and shaping.
