Seems like you're progressing at a good pace, considering a complicated kit.
I imagine that one will be represented in flight !?
Jep, after all the tedious sanding I am now in the lane and making good progress, no landing gear is also a huge time saver.
Gonna stick this on a pole in a steep climb, this looks cool + saves the most horizontal space. Still plenty of vertical space left in my little room here...
Really nice progress 👍 For my big F-14 I am also playing with the idea of exhibiting it in the "vertical climb" position. Looks 😎
Some updates on painting

Impressive! I have the same single-seater in my stash. Did you use the AIM-9X from the kit? I bought Eduard's Brassin AIM-9X kit, looks like a great improvement over the kit one.
Thx! The aim 9x in the box are a joke ... sadly the eduard replacement was not yet released when I built this so I butchered the kit ones into a new shape
(somewhere at the start of the WIP album)
Excellent build with top paint work and weathering! 👍👍
this is the most beautiful super hornet Rhino that I have seen in a scale model🤩
I finish mine at 1/48 and it will be difficult for me to do as well as you.
Many thanks for your very kind words Neuling and Juskifo😊detailed weathering gets easier with the size of the plane 🙂

Thank you James and Rui!
Now she is resting on her own (flat) wheels
What a humiliation for a once proud diva ...
Impressive painting/weathering/whatever work mate 👍
Superb weathering Daniel 👍...the once-mighty Fishbed tucked away like a cast-off, a shame.
Very cool work .but the masks from the cockpit were not removed probably .in my albums I also tried to age this model.
Well she bears it like a man as slavo says 😉
Thanks a lot Roland, Jos and Alexander!
True, the masks are still on, but will of course be removed in time - were not done yet after all. Yesterday my scenic materials arrived after several years err, months of waiting...(man, even a GB went up in the meantime) and I hope I can put that to good use soon.
As a backup I also ordered some ready to use instant vegetation (just add water... 😉 )

Nice work Daniel! That canopy came out great 🙂
Awesome, I didn't expect anything else😉
Thanks a bunch nathan and roland!
Top build in cool presentation!👍
Pictures look like from a roll-out celebration of a real aircraft... 👍
Very nice work here, and a smart 21st´century bridge between scale-modeling and beauty-product industries! Elon Musk should have a look at this!
Great job, you demonstrated that when all that usual dirt & grime is taken out of the occasion, you still manage to have a very nice clean model underneath - nice effects on all those zigzaggy panels and shading on the diverse "muscular" curves the aircraft sports!😉
Jos, Neuling and Slavo, thank you very much, really glad you like it!
And I will add the dirt+grime I saved on this one onto my next project😉
Nice work, glad you managed to to recover from the accident and manage a quite convincing appearance of the iridescent canopy. 👍
Besten Dank Alexander!

Thanks Daniel, will try your dabbing method and see if it works with the product that I'm planning to use 👍
Armament done, AMRAAMs from the kit + Eduard X-Winders
Think this will be the last update as this battle penguin is pretty much completed 👍
Lots of good reading on those Amraams & winders! 👍
As good a read as any phone book - but it looks decorative😉
Done! Thanks everyone for riding along this little voyage into 5th gen., silly jet-nicknames and beauty tips for shiny nails!

Creative camo, I really like the clean look 👍
Thank you Jeramy! I would give no guarantee for standard brand resin, as those are from the old monogram kit which is still sold by revell...dunno if there are resin exhausts designed for this
Thank you Tobi! I usually like my jets a bit used but did keep it clean here as the Kuwaitis seem to keep their planes pretty tidy and it should also depict a brand new delivery
Nice one Daniel 🙂 Always fun to see another wiff around
Thank you very much augie, always fun to build one if the mojo runs out for the serious stuff 🙂

👍 only a question of time until some spanish company will sell these repacked for modelers for 5 bucks/sheet😉
i think there are no rules about giving links to sellers in ebay. but i think i found it, thanks!
I found some stuff on Amazon here in the US that looks the part. A 17x78 inch sheet should last me several lifetimes for $11 lol!
woooow 😄 is that originally designed to get you a 5th Gen anti reflective bathroom window?
i got some ordered, thanks for the tips
That's also on my to-do list for 2021. Or 22 😄
Yeaah-i feel you 😄 but maybe I ll just wait until someone releases a Striker helmet equipped pilot...but I fear I need to sculpt something remotely looking - as this will def. need to be in flight!
Thank you very much Nikolaos!
Add 2 Spitfires and you'll have a full Battle of Britain "Adventskranz" going on!😉
Seems you all had fun with the 109's, lovely work and presentation 👍 Cool photos with the erased supports and wildly spinning propellers as well as on the naval background!
😄 Thanks a bunch slavo!
thank you ricardo!

Wow, I almost missed this one. You are working wonders on this kit Daniel. Can't wait to see the finish.
Thank you very much Jos + Nathan!
I just went back and read how you approached the paint work on this build. I'm going to have to try that out 🙂
What a lovely beautiful oily & grimy mess!!! 👍😉
@ Nathan: I found concentrating on individual panels really being a big step in bringing me closer to the desired result, previously I painted big surface patterns as you would on a car and it really makes a difference in the end
@Slavo: thanks+amen - a beautiful mess is what we aim for 😄
@ all: Thank you for joining in, a happy new year to everyone as well!
