Another day, another update. Spent a while on this today, although it looks like it's going quite slowly. Each piece is taking a lot of fitting, and drilling the hole for the fan support was a pain.
I'm designing the infrastructure as I go, hence the strange horizontal support piece. I couldn't get it as low as I wanted because of the lack of height of the model (the pilots head would have been stuck out the canopy), so I cut out a hole to drop the pilot into. Means I'll be able to use this as a base for control panels around the sides, should work nicely.
I should keep a piece count on this, not sure but I'd guess I'm up to 25 or so so far, and loads more to do. Was intending to do the fans today, but got diverted into painting a couple of the other models. More tomorrow I'm sure.
