Maciej Bellos Looking good! Did you go for a silverish finish? It seems that there are metallic specles all over the aircraft.

Alex Thanks! Yes, the "have glass" is a pain to paint. It's not glossy, but has a clear metallic shine, without being too metallic like alu. Image #40 captures what I think looks good. Unfortunately, the effect wanished again a bit after the gloss cote for the decals. Still happy with the result.

Patrick Hagelstein Hi Alex, did you know Tamiya has a full options version of this same kit that comes with gasbags and HARMs? Could have saved you a lot of trouble... I like your Have Glass though!

Alex Yeah, I know, I was too quick buying the first release. I should have waited a bit more.

Maciej Bellos Thanks Alex! Yes the "Have Glass" paint is a real pain. The greek Block 52+ Vipers are a prime example of "Have Glass" painting. Depending on the angle of light what you see will vary from pretty silverish to rather bland.
