Resin cockpit finished.
Fuselage closed up, resin tail pipe installed, and putty applied to the fuselage. Much putty will be required to fair the tail pipe in. There is a rather nasty step and I could not thin either part, fuselage or tail pipe anymore.
Still sorting out the exhaust nozzle, final sanding and fairing in. Wings and weapons pylons are complete as well as gear legs.
Always in for an F1 build 🙂
Thank's Nathan. They have been sitting in the stash for years, when I saw your's I decided it was time to build one.
Looking very well so far!
Thank You very much Roland, your kind words are much appericated. It is finished now.
Like it Clifford, gives me hope for when I do mine 🙂
I completely missed this one! Looks great in the desert finish. Well done 👍
Thank you very much Augie and Nathan, your kind words are most appericiated. @Augie it was a fun build and only my second Eduard kit.

I do not know what happened, but the clear coat took it away.
I've had it happen on occasion. I think it may be the humidity. The clear coat (or Future) always makes it disappear.
Yea, the future took it away.
Still can't get to much accomplished at one time. I will remove the wash tomorrow.
Quick update. She has legs and weapons. Just need to add AOA sensors, and pitot tube and canopy. Pictures soon.

If I had the space a What If cod RN would be interesting.
Yes it sure would be.
That I call modelling. Superb plane and the base is great.!
Paint arrived today for the Air Force version, just waiting on the resin wheels for the next 2 kits. I also plan on using the Hobby Boss PE detail sets on them.

Only got the landing gear done today, My granddaughter's could not behave themselves so grandpa had to "babysit."
Looking good Clifford. Love the chosen scheme.
Thank you very much Mathieu, and Gerald. Final gloss coat applied, next weathering.
Got the wash on and off today, pin wash done, waiting for it to dry and remove. Then final assembaly.

Count me in 👀
Me too 😁
Got all of the re scribe done today and all parts washed. Tomorrow will start on the pit.
I plan on getting the Black Dog conversion set to build the Air Force version. I have enjoyed the build so much, I bought another one. LOL.
I've got that BD conversion. Looks like a great set. I think it will look awesome in the "Have Glass" scheme. I do want to pick these up for mine too: https://www.hlj.com/1-48-scale-active-halo-descending-jumpsuit-team-5pcs-zplmf-17a
That set looks cool. I will be glad when I can find the BD set in stock somewhere. So far the only place I have been able to find it in stock is at The 48thrs. com.
I got the last of the decals done today, will finish the landing gear tomorrow and take some more pictures.
I've had great experiences with The 48ers.
So have I. I have ordered several things from them, so I will most likely just order it from them. Kitlinx had it for awhile, but I think it's still out of stock.
