An inspirational build that obsessed me for a while and  published in Air Fan N°136 in the 90s:

I tried to fill the horrible rivets with MrSurfacer & Deluxe Perfect Putty but the result was far from "perfect". I had to finish the job with CA glue:

Re-scribing of the nose details: A 6-steps tutorial
1- Helped by Dymo tape, I use a needle to re-scribe straight lines

2 - The same needle is used to re-scribe rivets

3 - The line running around the nose cone is done helped using a circle template

4 - For a perfect work, I use a bit of Tamiya cement to blend all imperfections

5 -  When the cement is dry, fine steel wool is used to smooth the surface
