Awesome start Wayne...if you're not building some obscure South-American thingy, I have the AK Real Color paints for this if you want to try them out..Blue Gray/Light Gray and the interior colours?

Is the cockpit SOTB cause it looks very tasty? Kit looks pretty sweet and some great work on that engine.

I almost always steer clear of Tamiya and Hasegawa cos they are so well designed there is no sweat involved.
Looking forward to rest.

Regards
