When first side's ended, do it again on the other side. Don't forget to remove pieces of depron to save weight before glueing sheet...

And then, glue and sand 6 mm depron sheets to end work (temporarily) on the nose cone.

Yes it looks pretty cool with the desert camouflage and the hunchback.
The "agressors" (well known from the top-gun movie) had a very interesting and exotic paint schme as well...

No F-14 yet. I have F-15, F-16, and F-18 though. Although the Scooter is quick I think mine can handle it!
