I goit the resin nose o n but it was not a good fit and took allot of filling and sanding :(
Then I rescribed the whole thing.

The canopy fot also is a PITA to fit on the new nose but after filing and sanding the front it works a little better.

Lets see who picks up the "overspray" of blue where the fin meets the fuse.....a mistake or shoddy masking you might thing but not so. when with full size you spray into a sharp corner like that it makes a vortex and the paint actually lies down like I did there. :wink:

Who makes the resin nose? What I have seen for the Italeri kit was a complete fuselage front part from scaleworx for the ESCI/Italeri kit.
Will you take a metal pitot, too?

Here is is, not exactly what I planned for this model but it is what it is :)

Colours are my own mix of enamels with alclad clearcoat to seal it all.

Sorry I missed this post.

The nose was from scaleworx, the rest of the cockpit was Pavla.

I supose you could glue a metal pitot onto it.
