The photo montage is as nice as the model alone 👍 It is build so clean it could be much bigger scale.

Thanks very much guys. Frank, I tried to make it dirty... 🙁 😉

😉 Clean in the meaning of error free, and not un-weathered 👍

Can you still try to reposition the drop tanks? I believe they are wrongly fited. The seam line is to be «horizontal» not vertical. Ypu can also remove them. It will still be a beautifull model. ?

Your Corel concepts are always very cool 👍 And you don't have to stick to a single background 😉

Thanks very much guys, much appreciated.

Lukasz- until I build my own hangar, I am stuck with digital montages. But I agree, it does have flexibility 👍

Hi Jorge- the drop tanks were actually supplied with the seams vertically (as I have depicted) as well as horizontally positioned (as in the kit). This is supported by several photographs I have found and described in the references (I can look up specifics if you are interested 👍 ). Cheers.

I had to get a hangar as I'm unable to learn using anything more than MSPaint 😄

Hi Alec. It looks odd to me but I checked and you are right. I have that model from academy and they are horizontaly fitted as per the assembly instructions. Nice model anyway. ?
