Very nice Jos, looks awesome 👏👏
Nice, clean work, Jos!
havent seen this one yet, awesome jos 👍
Thank you guys, it's been already awhile ago that I finished this model. This Revell kit is definitely a little gem among the average not so best molded Revell kits. Glad you liked it...👍

I had some problems with the front screen, because of the PE in the cockpit there were small seams between the screen and the fuselage. Problem solved with some Vallejo plastic putty. All flaps and slats are ready for the primer, placed before the photo but I glue them later when the final colors are applied.
Looking all very nice especially the office. 👍
And I see the hornet kit with no gaps under the lex has yet to be invented.
Following this one, looking good
awesome work! are you building a launch mode? I am building a resting mode with everyting opened/folded. Do you know if the main color scheme is Dark Gull Grey for top and Light Gull Grey for bottom? I couldn't find the paint no. from the painting instructions. Btw, I didn't have the seam problem you showed in fig. 19 🙂
Alrighty then. I have it in the stash. Watching with interest.

Thanks Sergej, Nathan, Erik, Tas, Daniel James, Robert, Roland, bughunter and Spanjaard...great comments from great builders, thanks guys!
@bughunter: I didn't use a foil but I used this: Hasegawa TF-902 Polarize Finish Green Magenta. It's not here in the database from SCM. Perfect stuff to create a greenish shiny HUD. Check out the link to my Phantom project...!

Super cool finish Jos! I hope this gets you back into afterburner mode, I surely hope to see more coming from your table!
I did not yet choose to go through the pleasure/pain of building an immaculate clean aircraft, but if I do, this is going to be on the benchmark list 👍
If not in the database, ten add it 😉
@Eelco...bedankt mien jong!
@Slavo...thanks mate, you should build also a showbird, from your hands its gonna be absolutely a stunner...but Iam back Sir, full throttle with a new project...:

Wow! Surely this build is a 'mic drop moment'! Jos I've only just seen this. It's so inspiring. Beautiful work and congratulations! ?
Thanks Slavo...well the Tamiya is truly a masterpiece of modeling engineering, but with lots of modeling conviction and commitment also the good and reliable Hasegawa kit can be a little gem!
Thx Neill...really appreciate your comment ??
Beautiful work! And congrats on the award!
Many thanks Dylan...👍!!

Still not finished - good, so I can mingle IN with some "wisdom" before the prop starts spinnin... 🙂
Very much looking forward to see this birdie with all that brass galore done & in color 👍
Somehow missed this, but looks like I am not too late to the party. And your progress so far looks great! 👍
Have the same kit in my stash with a bit more aftermarket and already started it, but I decided to tackle the Eurofighter first and do that afterwards. Will certainly be a "break" after my "current large scale construction site" of a build 😄 .
Added extra weights in the nose...no tailsitter anymore!
Back on the Tucano, great! 😄 👍
Wow! That looks great!

I am still not sure which kit I will use for this project, the Hobbyboss or a Kinetic Gold version ... the Hobbyboss has a fairly coarse molding. Just look at how they put the rivets on, they run across the inspection hatches ... very rough!
I'm definitely watching this one. The only A model kit I owned was Hasegawa, but I traded it for my D. Looks like the HB riveter went nuts 🙂 I'm sure you'll whip it into shape!
Count me in 🙂
I have both (other versions) in my stash. The rivets from the Hobby Boss are grossly exaggerated. This is even more extreme with the F-14. I think Hobby Boss loves rivets. Personally, I don't care. But since I know that you are a perfectionist, I would take the Kinetic or, IMHO even better, Hassegawa.
Yeah, great subject! Hard choice really, both have their pros+cons...HB requires extra surface-treatment while kinetic has lovely surface structures but is known to be quite uncooperative during assembly...
the hasegawa really is a good idea, depicting an early hornet and with decent rivets+panels.
And Btw: the HB kit is "heavily inspired" by hasegawa, if you catch my meaning😉
Choice made....the Hobbyboss, all the ordered stuff has arrived 👍!
Read a comment once about the HB Hornet: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery 😄
The moment when you realize that you've paid more for accessories than you did for the kit LOL
@Roland...at least I've made a choice 😄...next!
I'm already looking forward to the camo for this build.
all the am stuff I had on my wishlist and was too greedy to get (mainly as Roland said😉 )
This will bring some fantastic detail 👍
One big minus are the intakes, which end where the wheel wells start...if youre still collecting maybe this would make sense:
F-18A F-18B F-18C F-18D Horn..ntake (GT Resin 48042, 1:48)
Count me in 🙂 Aggressor schemes are always nice.

Very nice work again Jos, how does the Aires exhaust fits the kit, watching the picture it looks fine, is it really 'plug and play'? (I've had some bad experience with the aires exhaust for the hasegawa kit due to resin shrinkage.)
Very nice Jos, great result ?
Very nice Viper Jos.
Great paint and decals. Always wanted to complete one like this. Thanks for sharing.
The WIP album has been disappeared for some reasons...I'll upload soon some progress pics and the reveal pics. This Viper is also published in the International Scale Aircraft Model issue May '21.
