I'm waiting on some after market bits so I decided to start on the wings, seemed simple enough, after removing them from the sprue and cleaning off the tiniest edging of flash

[wings] [wings2] 

oops I hadn't noticed the pin marks, now I have glued it together, its awkward to get rid of them, time for the filler:-
[wings3]  [wings4] 
Thats a little better, I may have to do better, I'll get on with something else and think about it.

Thanks for the encouragements.

ok, time to get the p-cutter & saw out, starting on my favourite bit the scratch building [biggrin]

Whilst walking my dog, I have been walking past a bit of a firework since 5th November. Since I decided to do this build I have been looking for a tube thats just the right size, today I saw the bit of firework again, on a whim I pulled it apart and there it was, needed about an inch cutting off but other than that its perfect [cool]

[markup]
marked up the panels that need cutting out, also heres the bit of the firework, before cutting and before I cleaned and washed it.

[cuttingout]
Ok lets start cutting them out..

[test]  
A quick test of the cut out tube, yes It's going to be it's engine [smile]
[dry_testfit]
After quite a bit of filing inside the fusilage to get the tube to fit past the airbrakes, Heres a quick dry fit, held together with white tac. [wink]

Not much to show for the past 2 days, real life has a way of getting in the way [sleep]

the after market parts turned up
[after-market]
As you can see I have cleaned up the resin parts, I didn't think to take a photo before [nono]

[edard-lightning-f6]
The Eduard Photo etch looks nice... Luckily theres quite a bit of crossover as you will see next:-

[cockpit1] 
Look at the Ejector seat, right in the centre theres a huge bubble!, the rest of the Pavla cockpit set is nice but that bubble would have ruined it. Luckily the Eduard cockpit set has a seat cover amongst more detail for the ejector seat so that rescued me from a small disaster!

I'm getting the parts dry fitting then It's time to paint the cockpit before assembly of the main fuselage. I'm still in 2 minds to build an F.6 or an F.53 the only thing stopping me going for an F.53 is I want to do an RAF Lightning and I don't believe the F.53 was ever used by them. It was a Saudi 

If you don't know what an F.53 is take a look at this link
