I've added the steering louvres and protective caps to the jet engines. I may try to paint those caps to resemble turbo-fans. I also began with a three-blade louvre in each engine, but felt the detail was too small to be noticed, so I went with single blades.
Ready for the final paint job. I am leaning toward a desert sand color for the main body (already base coated it khaki), with dark brown and green highlights. The plenum will be Tamiya's semi-gloss black, while the top sensor will be gold. I am deciding between gold or silver for the 'scimitar' details. Any thoughts on the two? Anyway, we're getting close.
