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

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.

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!

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

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.

Looks fantastic Alex. The metallic shine is very interesting. Thanks for sending me the link.
