 Started to assemble the main torso section. Most parts now fully painted; thrusters and jet parts need painting - am going to try some enamel paints //Mig Ammo Extreme Metal//. That will be a good test of my abilities, since I've never sprayed enamel before. Started to assemble the main torso section.

 +Started assembly of all the sub-components. I'm **really** liking the way this model is coming together. All of the decals still need applying, as well as weathering effects applying, but even without those, I'm very, very pleased with the design. With just a small amount of extra effort it's starting to look like a stunning kit; far better than the 2 or 3 colours of the out-of-box colour scheme.
