I noticed a few things that needed a bit of work to make them look better.
[befornafter] 
A pin vice makes the wheels look a lot better once you drill the hub's holes out
on the right the original kit, on the left after a few minutes with a pin vice and the correct gauge drill bit [rolleyes]

I'm almost ready to install the wheels when I see the front wheel bay, It's just a blank of plastic, time to drill this out as well.
[frontdrill]  [frontbetter]
I left in the very bottom of the plastic with the hole to mount the wheel.

Almost there, added the undercarriage, the engine door, tow hook and nose needle.

Applied a coat of gloss to seal the decals in
[glossed] 
Next after the gloss dries is to give it a wash and add a bit of weathering. [smile]

Good save with the nose looks like you blended it in nicely. Keep it coming.

Yes luckily the plastic was a clean break and just extra thin and sanding did the job well [smile]

Thanks Ted, I'm using it to test out all the stuff I have been watching on youtube, If I was to start again I would do things quite a bit differently, It may turn out not much different but It's taught me lots [smile]

Applied a Flory Grime wash
[mud1]  [mud2]  [mud3] 
The beauty of this stuff so I have been lead to believe is by applying a wet cotton bud you can clean it back to it's glossed state, well the proof is in the pudding...
[cleaner3]  [cleaner2]  [cleaner1] 
It's pretty heavy on using cotton buds but they do clean it up nicely, I stopped just about where I wanted it, nice and grimy but not too filthy [smile]

She is getting there, I am liking how she is looking, think I'll try a bit of oil streaking, rust etc. next then it may be time to put the engine in! [cool]

After reviewing this post I spotted the right pylon, (Left from the bottom) wasn't sat right so carefully removing it with pliers,
a quick sand and superglue'd back in it looks a lot better, I'll quickly apply a wash to it to dirty it up again, the camera is like another pair of eyes nice [wink]

Again been busy so sorry for my lack of updates, here they are to follow [smile]

Detailing the Engine and Engine door

referring to what photo's I could find by scouring the internet I found a couple showing details on the inside of the Engine door and seeing it was a bit blank I wanted to add something.

The first was easy, a bit of styrene sheet was cut and shaped like a chunky 'd' 4 holes where drilled using the trusty pin vise and a bit just a tiny bit bigger than the wire I was using, I then folded the wire and fed the 2 ends threw 2 of the holes, getting another wire and repeating the fold and fed the ends threw the last 2 holes (see right of picture)
[detailing1]
The detail was then painted, washed and attached to the door, you can see 2 wires in the photoetch tool, I bend these into U shapes and with the aid of a couple of drill holes attached these as handles on the door, 3 more wires where attached, some lines scored etc.
[detailing2] 

I did quite a bit of work on making the Jet Engine look a bit more like the Avon it was supposed to be,
It's still not the best replica in the world but It's as good as It's going to get in the time I have.
A Lot of scoring, greebles and wires added
[detailing3]
Another Black ink was and It's ready [smile]

I'm unsure If the diorama will get finished in time but I have made a start:-
[groundcrew]

[groundcrew2]
The groundcrew and Red Top missiles undercoated in white then put aside till later

A picture frame was de glassed and a board of MDF placed on the backing, sandpaper (80 grit) was cut into squares
[Sandpaper]
Then stuck to the MDF rubbing bits of the sandpaper and slight de uniforming and then undercoated in grey
[base1]
A Black ink was was then applied and then this was set aside till later as well.

Coming together of the parts

It was finally time to start the final assembly of the lightning.

The Masking was removed and a lug was glued into place to hold the canopy in place.

Firstly the Engine door was super glued in place, attaching to the hinge I had added in the detailing phase, the wires where then bent down so the engine would hold them down.

Secondly the Engine was slotted into place, unfortunately this was now a tighter fit than the last time I had dry fitted it because of the extra greebles, this caused the two upper halves of the fuselage to push apart *argh!* luckily re-gluing it and tacking it together with superglue so the liquid cement could do it's job fixed it *Phew!*

The exhausts where glued in and the canopy's decals applied, the canopy was given a couple of coats of clear and after it had dried was glued in place and the lug painted to match the rest of the canopy

[comingtogether]

I tried removing the nose ring from the cocktail stick (I should have used superglue remover)
unfortunately due to the thin delicateness of the plastic I broke a chunk out and had to glue it back in.
Due to the ring being hand painted the thickness of the paint stopped it fitting the nose exactly, I hadn't filed the hole big enough to take paint into consideration, so out come the files again...
