Nice final result! You really worked some magic on this old kit. I really like the time you took on the riveting and the extra attention you gave the landing gear.

Very nice & true to the original, good job 👍 The nice & detailed Sidewinders were a good choice, adding some contrast to the monolithic grey.

Thanks so much guys 🙂 I hope to step up the quality with the next model a bit, as I exchanged my 15 Euro China airbrush against something a bit better. Especially when it comes to primers, varnishes and Hataka paints, that should make for better results 🙂 Now I just need to make up my mind, what to build next😉

Maybe some chillout build for AUG-SEP and then join our Aggressor group build starting in OCT?

@Slavo I just browsed my stash back and forth, but I have nothing that I could use as an aggressor :/

@Roland I am more thinking along the lines of a Japanese Mitsubishi T-2. Something away from the mainstream😉

Problem is, the camo scheme is not as fancy as all the US F-16s, F-15s and F/A-18s :/

I´m with you Carsten, but the grey/dark grey camo with the toned down Hinomarus looks very hot! 🙂

@Harry - I just found an ooooold video yesterday showing four of the T-2 aggressors. All four with very worn camo, barely visible Hinomarus and also the aircraft regs were toned down. Should be fun 🙂 Kit, add ons and a book are ordered. Now I just need to find out how to join in lol
