Sven Schönyan I started this build last year but as so often it came to a stop shortly before the painting process. Luckily this strange year is different and I´m in the mood to finish WIPS or start new one.
So next in the row is this one. With all the experiences I got from the recently finished F-16C (and the other models before) I feel prepared to take the challange of this one.
The goal is to resemble a rather used A/C in the middle of ODS. Let´s see if im courages enough for a dirty appearance.

Sven Schönyan As I got the Blue Angels edition which comes in naked I´m using some stuff out of the "Grabbelkiste", e.g. the leftover GBU-12s from the last build.

Michael Phillips Count me in!!! Off to a great start, and I feel ya on restarting WIPs. I just recently finished a Hasegawa Tomcat that had been put on hold for over a year. It really feels good to finish a project like that!

Sven Schönyan Welcome Michael! Nice to have you on board here, too!
Same same for me - too many unfinished projects lying around. It feels good to reduce the amount. But I also experienced that sometimes it´s not too bad to let you time with certain painting tasks. Especially when you put more heart and soul into the model and you think you´re not experienced enough. This year I´m very productive and tested out some painting techniques on the other planes so that I´m confident to get a proper result here.

Slavo Hazucha Hey, I´m not missing this after the shorts project! I had a kinetic Hornet and Aires cockpit & Gearwells, it was a fitting nightmare... The deal on the table looks good,watching

Sven Schönyan Hey Slavo, I´ve wathced your Agressor build with interest! I´ve used an Aires cockpit for a Super Hornet long time ago - I know what a struggle it can be fitting it in.
The Kinetic cockpit comes in very nicely so I just painted it as it is. According to my references it is very accurately done and detailed and for me absolutely enough. If I´m in the mood maybe the landing gear will get some Tie Downs fron Infini Models if I find a proper carrier deck...
This time I´m building Mr. Spock according to Bullseys Model Aviation research.
