Against all expectations (I've had a migraine all day) I managed to paint the pilot (reminds me of a Joan Armatrading song...)
The second photo is to show the shading more than anything else. Not that it'll be seen when the the canopy's on.
And I glued the fuselage halves together.
Now to clean up those joins. Got me some Green Stuff for just such a job. (Unfortunately, I forgot to get some paints at the same time, so back I go...before Acorn Models finishes their Autumn Sale - I'm all about the cost!)
