Shane, no reason to stop.  I have the Victor all masked off for the medium sea grey, but I had to order some more paint which should be here today or tomorrow.

Nice progress, Shane.

Mostly filling and sanding and rescribing here, but I did get up to putting a coat of Model Master flat white on the bottom.  Used up an entire bottle.

Thanks BK!

 

Still trying to finish...

I added some weight to the nose before I joined the fuselage halves

 

Starting to look like a jet plane

I finished the MK10 seats

and deepened the holes in these guns

 

Wow, huge improvement on the gun pods. It looks great.

Working on the fuselage halves, added some styrene bits and paint to the cockpit area and I took a cap from a scribbing tool and modified it to make an exhaust nozzle.

Looks like we are the rear guard, SEZ!

I  have made a lot of progress on the Victor K.2, the major assembly is complete.

I'm cutting it close, I just might pull it off

Anyhow, I am working on the wings

Both photos have OOB on top and adjustment on bottom

Fixing air inlets and sharpen rear edge of the wing

I'm motoring along on my Victor K.2, here's some pictures.  I did have to fuss a bit with the wing fit, but really it's pretty good, just tight in a few strategic places noted in one of the pictures.  I did trim the bottom of the wing spars some but I don't think it was needed, but then it doesn't hurt anything either.

 

 

 

 Some Tamiya putty was used on the tanks, refueling pods, and shock bodies but it was minor.

 If you wish to pose the SR2 version with an open bomb bay then you will have to deal with these ejection pin marks but it only took a little scraping and sanding on mine.  However, it wasn't necessary for the K.2 as there is no option for an open bomb bay on it.

 Every time I added an interior assembly I did a test fit. No serious work was needed for a good tight fuselage seam.

It's been cut rather finely, but I literally dusted off the Hercules and got it in the photo booth:

Thanks for the fun GB Bish!  It was a trying experience at times, but it gave me an opportunity to build a subject I otherwise never would have built.

The flight deck and nose wheel bay are together, and the very well detailed landing gear has been assembled, Brassin resin wheels will be used on them.  At present I am working on the engine inlets but there are no photos yet because at the moment they are not too pretty..

Brandon goes in the corner for a bad pun, "wip it out"!

I have every intention of having it done by the terminal date, but we will see if intentions equal actualizations!

John,

Looks like you've got your work cut out for you!  Can you finish it in less than a month?

(Though with Bish absent, I guess no one can call this GB finished!)

There being one month to go, I thought it best to get started on my Victor K.2.  My first step was to shamelessly copy all of Martin's post into a Word document, and set it next to my instructions.  Then I went to Sprue Brothers and got Eduard masks, cockpit PE, and wheels.  I'll have to wait for the cockpit PE before I go too far there, but in the meantime I painted the interior of the fuselage in the cockpit area using Floquil Nato Black and MM light gull grey.  I also assembled the horizontal stabilizer and elevators. giving the elevators a slight nose down position to copy the position of XL189 rolling out on the Ascension Island runway after a mission. That's the airplane I will be marking the model as.

I stuck some pieces of the Sea Dart's launcher together last night:

Fit is generally good to excellent.

 

 

 

Very cool kit.

...except I have the missile launcher arms turned backwards!  Stick out tongue  It should look like this:
