Nice and clean work. Here in Brazil is almost impossible to find those kits

First of all thanks to Don, Diego & Rafael for stopping by to check things out.

Beginning of the hull interior.

Before the fun part starts I had to clean up one loose end with this kit. When GMP released it, for some reason they did not provide a part to cover the inside back panel of the engine compartment. Instead, the outside part was marked with the "paintbrush symbol" which translates to "paint the reverse side" or something like that. I have no idea why the part was not included, perhaps there was not enough space left in the book or more than likely it was just an oversight. Anyway I did my best to produce a part by scanning another existing part, enlarging it and cropping out a portion that closely matched the grimy texture of the engine bay. Since my color printer is currently out of ink its basically nothing more than a boat anchor. So, not having a choice, I had to use my laser printer but in the end I think it turned out OK, especially after adding a bit of pastel colors from a Tamiya weathering kit. Once glued in place, and covered with the engine, exhaust manifolds and other components I don't think it will be all that noticeable. So now that that's done I can move onto the more exciting stuff.

Stay tuned.

Quick update:

Starting to add the first few components that make up the interior of the hull.
The firewall and raised platform/fuel tanks have been assembled and installed.
So far everything fits like a glove. As you can see from the pictures I reinforced the platform with 1/16" balsa even thought it was not called for in the instructions. I have a tendency to over build on the side of caution.

Enjoy

That looks very adequately reinforced, with balsa wood. There's nothing wrong with adding some internal structure, a dent is easily made if you accidentally press too hard when handling the model. Tamiya pastel weathering set, wow, never knew it existed, but very, very handy!

Cheers,
Erik

Looks great! Always like the texturing GPM does and you are certainly making it all look the part, as is your usual attention to detail!
