I remember I was so much impressed with the shape of this F-19 when I saw it for the first time...it is a pity that it is only a fictional plane 🙁 Watching with pleasure and interest, of course 😉 Fantastic work, so far!

Hi @Robert, thanks very kind! 🙂 I too can recall this kit when first released - it looked like a UFO to me at that time and took pride of place built on my shelf. I could only afford to build the 1/72 version then. I remained impressed when I first saw the (real F-19?) F-117 at an air show. 👍

Hi Pete, think you're being a bit hard on yourself there - looks great to me! 👍 I think I've done my usual and probably over-weathered this build now - it's nearly finished. But hey if something's gonna look worn. Then a Stuka must be a candidate! 🙂

I think the issue with this kit is how old they are. You dont know how long it was stored prior to you getting your hands on it. And Lord only knows if it got hot enough to warp the parts. Last one I did the fuselage to body mating wasnt horrid. I mean it wasnt fantastic, but not as bad as this one seems.

Regardless, great job. 🙂

This was started b4 I joined , so I'm late to the party. These were always one of my faves since I was a kid , watching them fly out of RAF Alconbury, Cambridgeshire.

Loving the metal tones , ab fab. 👍🏻👍🏻
22. September, 20:49

Thanks Maciej, Donald and David, it's very kind of you all to comment, appreciate your feedback 👍🙂 @Donald, agreed you're likely bang on. It was another bashed box find at a carboot sale. @David, lucky you! Largest I ever saw of these, was an f15 formation at Mildenhall, back in the 80s. It was impressive and loud!

Ludvík Kružík
Excellent work on the surface treatment of the model 👍.

This set is good as a teaching aid. But this kit is not suitable for building a model that corresponds to reality. The set has many shape errors and their repair is very laborious. For example, the bow is very short and has a bad shape, the glass cover of the cockpit is too wide and the windshield has a completely different shape, the centerplane is also inaccurate in shape ... you know for sure. But as you write, this kit is good as an aid to trying different procedures when building a model 🙂 🙂
Také mám rád tyto staré stavebnice. I really enjoy working on their modifications. Some of my model modifications are almost scratch building. So I know very well what it's like to build a nice model from an old kit. I wish you a lot of patience and a lot of fun building other models. 🙂
22. August, 10:54
Neil
Hi Ludvik, Thanks very much for your comments 🙂

I agree, the kit being a vintage one and by this manufacturer is not particularly accurate. Especially when accuracy is compared to the modern kits that are available. However, a vintage build brings it's own complications and challenges in attempting to build something comparable to the more modern kits in look and that is my aim. 🙂

I enjoy the surface treatment part of a build the most. As for me modelling is more about the finish than the build/construction, as my bio says - call my efforts artistic interpretations of the real thing. I wouldn't attempt what many of these guys can do, it's truly wonderous what they can build.

Best to you also Ludvik 🙂 👍

I'm looking forward to seeing how you add colour and bring this ship to life 🙂
24. September, 18:30
Neil
@Robert, well flattered with that as a suggestion 😊 I'll take that! 👍 @Bruce, thanks, I have actually gloss black primed it now. So likely a gunmetal paint job or a Red Dwarf red maybe? Not sure... Any thoughts? Course no matter what colour I choose it may still look rubbish!
25. September, 19:53
JD
Perhaps imagining a backstory of this ship's purpose may indicate it's colors and markings? Looks like a combat vessel for sure, but maybe the missiles are actually weather vanes or something. Let's see that black primer..😁
25. September, 20:03
Neil
@JD I never took any pics with primer. Soz. Decided I'd better stick with the ethos of just going with a quick build idea as that's what I said I'd do, plus I have about 5 other builds to finish! 😅 It's been painted gunmetal now. Made a couple of minor mods to the sidewinders... Will get some pics on tomo for you 👍 I'm not gonna mask stuff, etc I'm just gonna paint it as I feel 💡 hopefully it'll work out!!

Thanks James - bit heavy on the weathering (those pesky raised panel lines) and I fogged the canopy - but hey, every build is a learning exercise... I've bought the kit again and have the Blue Angels vintage kit also so will be giving them a crack too at some stage 😉
27. March, 21:43
James C
I had a pair of them which I sold off after receiving a pair of more recent Hobby Boss kits. I regret it now, as the Italeri kits included both the angled and straight refueling probes if I recall correctly. My intention is to do a pair of RNZAF machines which require the angled probes... which the newer kits don't include.
27. March, 21:48

Hi James, yes you're correct the kit did contain both probe options. Will deffo keep a look out for when you post progress on your build of the Hobby Boss kits ?
