Your resin/kit splicing techniques will inform my work as I splice the Polar Lights styrene saucer and DonS's resin bridge and blockhouse. (I'm going verrrry slowly on the DonS Reliant kit, as the components are very expensive, and I've never worked a geometry this complex...)

The Bishop dropship is more straightforward-- all resin parts fit with the precision of a good styrene kit, but I'm inspired by your photoetch work as I do the Bishop's cockpit PE parts.

I swap between the projects when frustration sets in on one or the other. (And I retreat to Bandai's 1/144 U-Wing when I need something much simpler...)

I've put a few shots of grey onto the nose, checking for clean seams, which are getting cleaner, and I haven't seen any bleed through yet. I may do a none acrylic clear coat to act as a barrier just in case before I lay down the main colors.

Dang, that Bishop Drop Ship looks great! Good luck with it.

As to frustration, I never find that as the reason I put a project 'on hold.' It's more just waning interest, which I'm trying to combat!

Alright, a little bit of cleaning up needed, but I'll be moving on from the cowl now. It's in, the sides are even and the fasteners look good. I need to sand out some larger scratches but I'm good with this.

Just exquisite modeling going on here. Mind boggling!

What's mind boggling is that I haven't trashed it yet!

Thank you!

I took a quick break from that to start on the gear. There are PE scissors that were glued in place, as well as a thin metal rod whose purpose is a mystery to me. I fabbed that with stretched sprue. It's a little long and will need to be trimmed up at the bottom.




The ID lights for the belly were also done. I airbrushed them, but figure the next time I'll just brush paint them. Easier.



And I started putting the wings on! I'm starting with the bottoms first and glued it in at the back before the front, just to keep that part level.




The gap where the wing curves back into the fuselage will be glued and smoothed last.

Once that's set, I'll test fit the upper panels, seeing how the seam looks and then use styrene to shim them. I want to get as good a line as possible before gluing the top of the wings in place in order to keep from having to sand afterward and risk losing detail. I can already see some gap that'll need filling.

And some resin goodies came in today!

Another set of exhausts, round this time as I haven't found an FR.47 with fishtail exhausts, as what came in the bag with the mis-sized cowl...



And the new prop blades!



Oooh boy!

With the lower wing panel in place I test-fitted the upper wings panels to see what kind of fit issue is going to show up. The port shoulder looks pretty good with a small gap at the bottom, and reverse for the starboard side.



I'll mark those areas and layer some styrene along the edge and sand them to shape, hopefully negating a putty or sanding after they are finally glued in place.
