I said I'll show some progress pics, and here they are :)

The detail level in the cockpit isn't very high, but it's an old kit.

Trying to do what wasn't there

And my try at doing the outside of the nozzle. Maybe I should redo it and try a cleaner look.

I tried to make the gunport look better by opening a hole, but I'm not sure if it shows.

What color should the inner most part of the nozzle have? Metal or body color i.e. grey?
Should I repaint the petals in a clean metal look?

Hoi Azgaron,

By inner, do you mean inside the nozzle? The inside should be white, though they get pretty dirty. Check the photo gallery here for the jet you are planning to build, that should help you too.

The inside of the nozzles are white, though they do get stained and scorched.

Sorry for not expressing me properly ;) What I meant was the part closest to the body (the part I accidently painted silver), which I guess should be grey as the body, or?

Nice work soo far.I must say that this is one of the best models that I have seen in a long time. The pieces are formed and fit with an amazing amount of precision and this turning out to be a beautiful model.
