The final steps are always exciting for me; yes, I’m one of those modelers who most loves getting things done!
Attaching the last of the little bits; pitot tube, bombs and inner gear doors have been attached. But I still need to paint the guns and attach the main gear.
My actual last step is doing all the lights. Most lights get a touch of bright Chrome Silver paint, followed by a clear version of whatever color they need to be. The small, round identification lights that go under the starboard wing are punched from bare metal foil then painted.
The finished model from the bottom. The identification lights have been applied at far right.
