Thanks, Cybermac!
After having enjoyed another blackout (the third in two days) I finished the first complete test of the model.
This one is being done to scale 1/100, once finished I'll assemble another one to scale 1/72, printed in color.

Still working in the model, I lost part of my work due to a blackout, but I hope to publish tomorrow the second test with a lot of the skin aplied to the phisical model.
By the way, I received a mail almost ordering me to make a repaint from some person that I don't know. I am REAAAALLLLY hoping that this person doesn't speak english well, and this was a translation mistake.

Going a little slowly. Real life work.
The pieces of the cockpit are done, but making the tail parts I found a difficult situation. The real plane has the tail designed to break in diagonal, just ahead of the rectangular exaust and in the middle of the rear stair (You can see it in the picture)
I tried to reproduce this split in the model, but the right placement of the pieces becomes too difficult.
So I'll need to redesing the tail section. Anyway it's not so hard, I hope to print the final parts tomorrow, and once assembled, to paint them and start with the rear control surfaces section.

I haven't forgotten this proyect, it's just that I'm in the last stage to start a new life in another country, and... it's a headache

Anyway, here is a part of the fuselage: in true there are three layers: a b/w "structure" model, with panels and rivets; a "shadows" with dirt and the depiction of the section 8 of the fuselage, and the third layer with the colors of the selected plane.

I hope to show the phisical prototype in two or three days, and add the tail and wings in a week. But, as I said...

First full test of the fuselage. Once I install the tail, I'll include the changes and print the final b/w test.
Then, it will come the wings and the landing gear.
It doesn't appear in the pictures, but the model is designed to include the pilot's cockpit and the passengers cabin.
Sorry by the soggy finished, but I just was checking that everynting went were it must and all the lines were straight.

Thanks, joshuajaeseo, thanks, hueycobra!

Today or tomorrow I hope to print the final b/w test, the one who will include the wings, tail, engines and landing gear.
Of course, if there are not blackouts (yesterday there were two covering a big part of the country)

Anyway, you can see some of the nose pieces, while I test the color placement (that's why the yellow rib is too wide on the landing gear doors)
