This week most of the time was spent building, painting, and detailing the Vipers engines. I was then able to get the forward portion of the fuselage together. I am currently working on the photo etch details of the forward fuselage now. There are many screens, and access panels to add. Then I will be detailing the gun turret with brass barrels and then the resin TSS turret will be built and detailed.
You can see more photos and details from the start in my build log at: 1/48 AH-1Z Viper
