There are definately some kits I would love to build and they are only in Vacform kits. It is something I will have to overcome someday. Your efforts are paying off as this is coming along nicely.

I like it!  You're almost to the finish line!  Did the original kit come with anything for the antenna?

Sweet!  Since it's a hypothetical why not put a thimble nose on it.

As I said, hypothical, as the Germans never fielded a radar that could work in a radome.  Here's a resin part that converts a Mosquito to that type, which did happen.
