Thnx for all the reference guys!

Almost finished up the pit. Only seatbelts and the canopy release lever to go. 

Started work on the gear. Cleanup up the parts and as you can see i got the resin flattened tyres. The NASM version does not have it’s wheels installed, but i will on mine.

Also bought some new AK weathering pencils today and eager to try them out.

Great work Jeroen, weathering looks very convincing. I use dozens of differently coloured pencils in my builds but having none of the AK ones, I'm interested if and how they are different from the normal stuff.

Cheers Rob

I normally use Prisma pencils or LYRA Super Ferby pencils.

These are up there with them. They're supposed to react well to water as well, so I'll try that this weekend. 

The thing i really like are the colours. Many cool earth tones that work well with military colours and subjects.

Cutting away the right engine nacelle cover. You can’t follow panel lines for this but need to study the photo reference.

and as you can see i closed off the gun ports since the NASM example doesn’t have any.
