After a flurry of activity at the bench the model is now finished. A matt varnish yesterday followed by some chipping with a silver pencil & pigments today sorted out the weathering. Next all the parts were added to the model with the only tricky bit being the canopy & front windscreen which did not want to mate up. Solved with a bit of gentle sanding and a bit of persuasion they eventually went together as I wanted.
I finished off with some rigging elastic for the antenna and a few touch ups here & there before declaring the model finished. I really had a lot of fun building and painting this so I might squeeze in a couple more aircraft builds in the coming year.
