I Usually don't fit most of he clear parts until the end. But as the fit around the clear parts was s bad I had to fit them to flare in the surrounding areas.

As for the pencils I just drawing on the model with them to create weathering, marks etc. They are also handy for emphasizing panel lines where washes haven't done the trick. The are best used on flat surfaces

Finally got around to writing this up.

This particular aircraft was operated by 1771 Squadron Fleet Air Arm (FAA) from HMS Implacable in 1944. It was lost during an attack on the Rorvik port in Norway on the 26 October 1944. The pilot Sub Lt R.M Shaw (RNZN) and his observer Sub Lt G.M. Smith were killed during the attack.

Full details with more photos at my blog but here's a couple of photos
