Looks good! IAre all the great details coming from the box or did you use any additional aftermarket sets? What colours did you use for ocean grey/dark green?

Thanks for the compliments. Yes, everything I'm using has come straight from the box. This is an Eduard "profipack" boxing of the Mk.IXc, so it comes with photoetch and canopy masks. As far as colors, I'm using model master enamels. The specific colors are described here: cybermodeler.com/air..fire_profile01.shtml

I went for the colors shown for a 7% scale fade, as shown if you scroll down on that link.

I am currently building the Tamiya Mk VB. Definitely not a bad kit but the difference in the level of detail is surprising. Thanks for the tips on the colours!

This Eduard kit is my first of theirs and it blows away anything I have done by Tamiya or Hasegawa. I highly recommend it. The profipack boxing is pricey, but you can get the plastic for about 20$ if you don't want the decals, canopy masks, or photoetch.

Very nice. Your instrument panel is magnificent. What colors did you decide to go with?

Good progress on your side!
I haven't decided yet on the colours - Tamyia looks right to me. I spend currently my time fixing my computer (one of my 3 harddisk has broken down) and on Ami Futamis F-2.

Almost finished. Just needs the lights painted and the undercarriage assembled.
