Honestly I don't know. I think my GF had something planned. Last year I went flying with a Cessna - great fun!

Some random work update: bevor closing up the fuselage I glued in a little magnet. Not sure if this is strong enough to hold but would make an elegant stand if it works - we will see.

Also painted and finished the intake. Not perfect but nice enough for the little bit if view you get in there.

The exhaust is very plain on the inside. Wanted to scribe some lines but couldn't get the scriber in there. Some styrene strips give it a little texture and interest.



And finally started filling to prepare for painting.

Thanks for looking ;-)

One more thing: as a show bird this beauty usually doesn't carry weapons but some "smoke dispensers" on the wingtips.

Sadly Revell us providing only regular rockets with the kit but with a little modification those should be fine. One done, one more to go...

Yeah now that you remind me I remember you going for a flying lesson [smile]
I'd laugh if she treats you to a paragliding lesson [biggrin]

Anyhow looking good so far,
btw what's with the magnet ?
are you going for a levitation display ?

Oh nooo, just read it, lol. But happy to hear from you Pete :-). It's a tiny old kit but I'm having fun. Looking forward to test the decals. They will make or break this build...
Here is the counterpart of the magnet:

Not sure if this works but would be an elegant way for the inflight display. Did a test run and it holds - barley but it holds...

And I finished the exhaust:
