The traditional beginning of any modelling project tends to be the cockpit.
With the type in question, it’s nothing complicated, neither in terms of colouring nor construction, which is relatively simple. The finer details are supplied as etched metal, and the construction is complete within a few sessions.
I followed the instructions, and installed the cockpit into one of the fuselage
halves, glued in place bulkhead A6 (which supports the fuselage shape; very
cool), added the exhaust stubs (these are lightly hollowed out which serves
its function well) and I buttoned up the fuselage. The bulkhead with the engine details was added to the assembled fuselage. The fuselage halves go together very well, to the point where there is no putty needed. I did run some
CA glue along the bottom joint, but that was more for insurance rather than
for filling the seam. The bulkhead with the engine details was assembled,
but not modified in any way. It becomes more or less invisible once installed.
