The tail fins are coming into shape, They used to be the tail planes of a MiG-23, which lost its wings to the build of a Messerschmitt P.1102/105.

The intake have been glued to the rest of the fuselage and blended in with a lot of PSR.

The wings have now been added and I'm getting closer to the paint phase. Originally I would had placed the P.1020-9 on The Falklands in the late 1980's/ early 1990's and envisaged it painted in the two colour grey camo as seen on EE lightnings. But lately weird and disturbing pictures have sneaked into my dreams, and I have started to imagine export orders from Canada (dark green/dark grey top/light grey bottom) og Australia (multi coloured SEA scheme) - And what about the Kiwis?

The airframe of the HS P.1202-9 have been moved to the Assembly Hall. And it seems like all the pieces fit together - Relief  :smiley:

Well, that is just chock-full of all kinds of awesomeness  :smiley: :smiley:

... envisaged it painted in the two colour grey camo as seen on EE lightnings...

Temptations aside, that Lightning scheme of Medium Sea Grey and Barley Grey would really suit your P.1020-9!

I too felt, that the grey Lightning scheme would really suit the P.1020-9 But I opted for the darker version of Dark Sea Grey top and Medium Sea Grey bottom, as I thought that there would be too little contrast between the greys and the pink/light blue Roundels.

I did use some low-vis Roundels larger than the ones used on the Lightnings, Tornados, Jaguars etc., as I felt. that the low-vis Roundels became almost un-vis on such a large Plane.

Now the P.1202-9 got wheels to stand on. And I think, that I will make it before my own deadline. I have about a week until my house will be filled with kids and grandkids, as we are to celebrate my mothers 96 years birthday.

Mat,

Absolutely astounding!  I wish I could get a kit straight out of the box to that level of finish.

Good luck with the birthday celebrations

How about an Israeli one with conformal fuel tanks, a fuselage hump and lumps and bumps?
I have a plan to convert a F-16XL to that but yours would be awesome!

Yes. That would be awesome - but then the P.1202-9 would not be In the Service of Her Majesty. Unless we rewrite history, so the British Mandate turns into a british Colony! And stays that way until at least after 6 february 1952  ;) Maybe an Idea for an other build !!!
