    Well saved tony. And the rest of us now have an example for defence when our wives ask why we are keeping all those bits of rubbish.

    Well after filling and sanding I got a coat of grey on the repair to see how it looked . It needed a bit more sanding then it has had a coat of black. The replacement nose ring was also painted gunmetal and is drying. This build just doesnt seem to want to cross the finish line though , as I was taking off the blu tac masking it pulled off part of the serial number decal!:mad: So now ive got this to try and rescue , along with the nosewheel door to re fix , and a new AOA vane to make as ive knocked off the other one!:oops:, cheers tony

    Actually I think it gives the aircraft a nice worn look Tony :) Look forward to the finish (if it isn't already, haven't checked the completed builds yet)

    Well after a lot of hassle i think i managed to salvage the build . The new nose ring worked perfectly , it was just the spraying and masking that was a bit of a bugger ( again , my fault !) hence me having to repair the serial with tiny strips of decal from the spares box ! anyways heres the finished repair and ill be putting a completed thread on in a while, thanks for following , cheers tony DSCN2235 [Desktop Resolution].JPG DSCN2239 [Desktop Resolution].JPG DSCN2240 [Desktop Resolution].JPG DSCN2223 [Desktop Resolution].JPG
