New window panel in place and has since been faired in with model putty

This lot got knocked or were taken out when I was buggering about with carefully re-engineering the fuselage to take the new panel

Fortunately with those big doors I won't need to brush up on my keyhole surgery.

I know you are referring to what other people do 'cos that's not you is it, 'cos you have a stash reduction programme.

The framing in the centre of the side cockpit windows in the kit is far too thick. I cut out the frame and started making new windows to which I would added a painted decal strip later.

None of that went to plan so rather than faff about trying to get windows to fit the frame I just made oversized windows. Covered in tape here to prevent scratches. The canopy there is a spare as the other one has detail added that I didn't want to break off with my hamfisted fettling.

This group build should be renamed  RCBAFI judging by how slow we are all going.
