It’s beginning to look a lot like....... a British Toom.

Still need to adress the gap between the cans and tail.

Oh my word!  I am in love....who did your reheat cans? They look stunning!  Am I able to order a set....somehow??  

Keep up the great work, I am loving having another Brit Toom build on the 'net' great stuff!

The cans have been sprayed in a black basecolour. Some faint traces of the printing process but some light sanding should eradicate that.

Testfitting the tailplanes, it’s certainly begins to look like a Toom. Some more work is needed on the area between the cans.

First coat of dark ocean grey applied. There are some irregularities but not much considering that this is a frankentoom. I am quite happy how it looks. I also got the Vulcan cannon as this was a regular fit in the RAF.

Well mate, it's hard to see any irregularities from my screen!  Looks splendid!

I really like how you did those Aux doors on the flanks of the engine sides, they really came up well.  Considering the surgery involves, I am totally impressed at the results you have achieved.  Thanks for the inspiration for me to keep plugging away on mine!!

Nope, it's Ocean Grey that serves as an undercoat. The EDSG will go on top of that. But will concentrate on the underside first.

Aaah ok, well hurry up then...:D

Just discovered that those 2 access panels on the RWR fintip are only on the left side...after I just put them on the right hand side!  Ugh.... dont make my mistake.  I have filled them with CA now LOL
