Yavuz Engin Thank you for your comments Bart. For the time being I only use Vallejo 77.702 Duraluminium on vertical fin and some aft panels. May be I can add some titanium after black sections completion.

Yavuz Engin @Treehugger finally decals are set. In my opinion they look fine on metal look scheme.
Yavuz Engin Tamiya panel line accent Color black was used for some panels. Oil paints were used for weathering.
Next will be stand and it will be released in separate album as well as final result.

Skywalker Did the model master clear coat effect the sheen of the metal?

Yavuz Engin It remains as it is mate. Metallic paints seem like with out sealer. This was my first time working with Model Master Sealer and surprisingly it worked well with XF-85 as well. It also protects the paint against masking tape very well. I am fully satisfied and happy with this sealer.
wilky I recently added this kit to my wishlist.
I also wish that I could get their Aussie Mirage but keep being outbid on ebay.
When I say I keep being outbid it makes it sound like a regular occurrence but I've only seen two in seven years

Yavuz Engin Tamiya epoxy and white putties were used to fill the gaps.

Yavuz Engin Some details added to the external fuel tanks.
Yavuz Engin Thank you mate but the fit is below average in my opinion. There are two big issues; first is canopy. There is a almost one millimetre gap between canopy and fuselage. I had to fill with evergreen and lots of putty. Second is nozzles. They are not flush through the body.
I build this kit to practice some weathering techniques. To be honest, unfortunately, it is waste of time.
