I really wasn't sure about the cockpit "glass" and if i wanted to keep it as one single piece. I don't have 3 hands so Double-Sided tape to the rescue!!

I decided to cut it into two pieces and have a frame:

I think it looks more distinct this way. You can see the "engines" there in the back. Easiest piece to glue on by far!! Just glue and then set it back down!

Fins on!!

Rear quarter, showing off the Israeli Squadron Marking and exhaust along with some engine detail hopefully.

Well that's pretty much all she wrote! I am still deciding if I should dirty it up a bit a little and take some more "professional" pics against a more suitable backdrop
