I got this kit for the Centennial+50 (I was born in Canada back when the Red Ensign flag flew). I have not yet got the nerve up to build it. Only got as far as admiring the sprues and decals. I see you have taken on the one thing that holds me back and that is to remove the seem on the canopy. I actually ordered another clear sprue from Kinetic via Lucky Models in case I F' it up. Also thinking of getting a 2nd set of decals also just to be safe. I have been watching your build. Cheers.

Thanks Robbi, my suggestion for the canopy, get yourself an Eduard MiG 21 (there were also in Canada). Eduard always has 3 versions of canopy that you don't need, you can practice on them ;) because of the decals I have don't worry, Leading Edge offers a very good replacement, or I simply use other Canadian markings, also from Leading Edge, because the Canadian special markings are simply the most interesting ones that can be found on the CF 188 / F18

I don't worry about decals and canopy, I have been looking for the perfect red for a long time and hope to have found it

Thank you colleagues and welcome on board :) After a long search I got a relatively inexpensive care, a plus for the canopy but also training money when it comes to the clear coat, I destroyed with some decals through the paint, only the simple orange maple and easily replaced by a Model Master Orange and some Tamiya tape, but still tuition in terms of paint :( the hull quickly had its color without much worry, the small parts and rudders are like dust catchers and so is the vertical tail before the decals bathed in Dowanol a good 15 times and freshly varnished ...., but slowly it comes to the larger decals and the alignment is again something that requires more than just calm and patience :)

A battle of attrition... gain some ground, lose it the another day, counterattack in the morning... :D Keep up the heroic effort, it's moving on nicely

The red Diva CF 188 has a forced break, a commissioned work simply takes priority
