The assembly is started quickly by removing molding seams on the head.



Nozzles are massive, so the edges are slightly rounded and extended inward the petals.

Before | After

The mouths of the guns are hollowed.

Arms gluing and filling of the horrible seam.

Curiously, in other parts of the wing, the cut is well placed (along the trailing edge) and the work is easer.

The cylon emblem is sanded first with coarse sandstick

then fine

The rest of the assembling does not present significant difficulties. I do not glue the ventral part, otherwise it would oblige me to install now the guns and engines, but I want to paint them quietly apart.
