Progress pics. The Tokyo is primed, polished, and ready to paint (Wednesday night). Then I hope to glosscoat, decal, seal, and flat coat over the next week, finishing in time for the deadline. Wish me luck.

The seam along the engine nacelle is tough to eliminate.
I attached the engine to the neck; this is the last seam to be eliminated.

That looks awesome! This is on my list to build some day but as a refit.
