Great build 👍
Thank you Alex, Bernhard and Guy!
Fantastic Sea Fury Maciej. The invasion stripes suits it well
very nice rendition of a horseless I meant hopeless ,kit..
Dimitri, 😄 😄 😄 Really a hopeless kit, a lot of work needed to make it look acceptable.
Thank you Erik! The stripes give it some character indeed.
Thank you for all the likes guys!

Thank you Ali!
Coming along nicely, Maciej.
Looks like some force was necessary to get her nose into shape.
The kit needed some persuasion 🙂 We'll see how she turns out after the first coat of paint.

Cool - weathering on the Hellenic Air Force planes is a challenge...
Thank you baracudaz!
Robert it's a what if in the sense that some previous greek jets (F-4s, F-5s and Mirage F1s) were previously painted in the so called Aegan blue scheme. So I wanted to see how this would look like on a Viper. I tried some wheathering too and it came out ok-ish.
I plan to build a Hasegawa 2-seater which will sport the heavily weathered Agean Ghost scheme. But I have to master the weathering process first
You made it perfect (not ok-ish...), and it looks very cool. And I think you have mastered weathering well enough.
Thank you Peppy and Robert!
Thank you Mark!

Great work. Can you share some of your process please. Did you use a airbrush for the paint? The decals look great considering the fragility and the problems you had. Well done!
Thank you Richard! The whole thing was hand brushed by my daughter, I think 3 or 4 layers. Vallejo's liquid gold was a bit tricky, but she pulled it off. I don't think there are in progress pics, it's a kind of dog of a kit and it we didn't pay much attention on details. Minimal putty was used, I wanted her to enhance her skills in hand brushing and get some experience with decals (not the best specimen for that).
Thank you Mirko!
Airfix decals are pretty much indestructible! They can be used after years of storage. The Mistercraft decals on this one were next to useless. Next time I will spray some micro liquid decal film to keep them in one piece.
Thank you Arif!

Cool! I like the consistancy of the markings!
Thanks Patrick! Also the markings are placed in the correct direction. I wanted to have the pointy end pointing backwards. She insisted the other way and she is right. When looking at a model we start from the front to the back. Thus each heart is correctly positioned.
Leason learned: women are always right! Even if they aren't! 😄
Martin should see this one 🙂
great that you get her in the hobby 🙂
My daughter got a Japanese in glossy pink. Not doing much herself, than killing the landing gear all two days. Good to involve her in daddy's crazy stuff
We have it finished for about a year now and I totally forgot to upload some pics of the final result. We actually are nearing completion of another kit and then we will start a legend, none other than the One-Oh-Four.
Well known phenomenon around my desk, too! Just enjoy your time together regardless the result - even if it's ... pink!
Well done! 👍
Thank you guys for all your comments. Much appreciated by both!
Yeah it was fun Patrick!

My modelling skills are not that good to depict a broken canopy, a pilot with arms flailing in the wind and a parachute tangled on the tail. So let's say it will look like before taking off for that specific flight. Or maybe at the moment the seat ejects, which should be much easier. I might push this project up the queue and do a dual build with a Marine EA-6A, since both are Italeri kits with the same camouflage, but different squadrons and eras (nearly 20 years apart).
Thank you for your interest Hans and I'll keep you posted!
Thanks Hans for the link, I missed that one.
Hell's teeth, what a story!
When i first begin to like the Intruder, that freaking scary Story was one of the first i ever heard.
Unfortunately I have to cancel this build. I am not able to print the decals. So it will be build as one of the box decals.
Pity 🙁 Have you tried contacting Mr.Decal?
