Next issue front intake areas, the resin parts are about .5 - 1mm lip all the way round.
Image

Image

I looked at sanding down the edges that sit against the main airframe, but that would move the part inwards but would cause issues with the alinement inside.

So instead I'll add some plasticard to the inside of the kit part, this should push the plastic out enough to level up the parts.

Image

I did glue the front of the engine on, but I've decided to remove it and will fit this to the air intakes before fitting the engine in.

This is the view of the main engine intake, as you can see the internal section doesn't have the centre section or the curved internal wall.
Image

So I've sanded the rear of the front undercarriage rear section down to as much as I can. You can also see that I've added some plasticard to the internal walls this has pushed the walls out so they fit the resin intakes better.
Image

Then I've made the internal section.

The next area was the exhaust areas, there's a massive gap.
Image

Which I just didn't like as you can right inside, even with the nozzles on.
Image

Same with the rear ones.
Image

So with some plasticard I've redone the areas.
Image

Image

All four of the nozzles still turn, the plasticard on the front areas go all the way alone the internal wall, this will add some detail to the inside as this area will be slightly open. You want see a lot of it but at least it's there :lol: :lol:
