Airfix 1/72 Hampden - Change tack

After seeing some cool Whatif's in the UAMF Airfix Angel Interceptor group build and stumbling across this thread on Whatifmodelers..
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php?topic=24619.0
I have thought to do a Whatif, night fighter version, slimmed down and packing some big frontal armament.

So have cut the bomb bay off the fuselage halves, sliced the nose glazing and added a section of bomb to fit, so gives this nose shape..
I've found a replacement pilot, and am leaning toward no rear guns, as the rear chap will be the radar operator.

Some fun Fill'n Sanding ahead.
