Hi to all friends,
it's quite a long time since my last post on this subject, here is a small update .

Wings leading edges taxi/landing lights - while test fitting the kit transparent part it falled inside the wing and according to Murphy Law I never recovered it - so I returned to scratch building, third attempt yelded an acceptable result (I skip the unsuccessful details).


the component are: a small styrene block, a couple of very mall "strass" glass and small plexiglas blok .


Here the light module is in place on wing leading edge

here the plexiglas block was filed to shape and polished



At the moment I'm facing 2 more problems : a proper smoothing of the top rear fuselage joint in the area of the strenghtening strips and the rescribing of the engines auxiliary blow-in doors on the front cowlings, 3 different attempts failed .

This explains the delay in posting updates .

That's all for tonight !!!!
