S-3 Viking

I bet you all thought I'd forgotten about this did'nt you? I've had a rest from the bench for a week or so but last night I was looking at those damned sonobuoy tubes and come up with this solution;
I drilled out the holes in the fuselage and inserted short lengths of 2.5mm (outside diameter) styrene tube which in turn was drilled out to reduce the thickness on the tube inside. Once dry the tube was cut flush with the lower fuselage and using a dentists burr the lip was thinned a bit more.
I think it looks much better than it did originally, only another 40 odd holes to do :o)
Told you those sonobuoy chutes were bugging me :o)
