Sooo,
finally started this undertaking. Wanted to this already in October but University stuff got the better of me.
Planned lots of re-scribing, riveting, sawing of parts, and detailing. For many of the stuff I am going to orientate myself on this build review here:
arcforums.com/forums/air/ind..s-training-for-132-finished/
In addition to all that remaking, I'm gonna saw off the elevons to position them in the rested position - I am still unsure about the ailerons though. Also detailwork in the landing gear bays.
Armament like in the main picture: 2 ASRAAM's, 2 BRIMSTONE racks, 2 Paveways, 2 fuel tanks and 2 METEOR's.

Already started the step of removing the panel lines. I am starting with the upper fuselage and move onto upper wings, lower wings then lower fuselage, with phases of detailwork in cockpit and wheel wells in between. So, lots of stuff even before the first paint or primer.

Thanks guys for being on the ride. :) Progress is slow, but this was expected as it is my first time making such a massive surface rework - although still minor compared to many other projects on this site. :D
I'm now on the riveting part on the portside of the upper fuselage, picture will come when I finished this side at least for the most part.

Interesting weapons load. Can't wait to see more :)

Portside is almost finished. The only thing missing are a few panel lines and riveting here and there that follow along further assembling and some steps around the cockpit, airbrake, engine nacelles and vertical stabilizer that need to be done with a thin styrene sheet.
Did a preliminary panel line wash after superficial sanding of all the riveting to assess wether all of that is still visible...which it mostly is, quite satisfied with the result for now. Though I need to widen quite a few rivets that got too small due to the sanding, but that for later...

Slavo Hazucha
Wow, that's a lot of work invested... Fighting and winning a slow battle of attrition here! ;) Following - as for building one, I'd definitely want to, but I'll chicken out and wait for a better model, probably...

Was busy filling and sanding most of the time. I guess half of the issues are my fault, as the resin cockpit caused some bending (one reason why there are landing gear bays, but no cockpit for this actual kit?). Though the rest seems to be the kit makers fault, especially the joint on the radome which I couldn't fill in a completely satisfactory way. But I know that most of this will look much nicer when the thing is finished.

Priming, preshading and first colour are done, the second one is in the process. Tomorrow I will finish the second colour and do some touch up's, like especially smoothing out the colour edges.

Slavo Hazucha
Evolving very nicely! The blue/blue camo is an artwork... seems you got the colors quite right, good going
1. September 2020, 23:58
Alexander
Thank you for your kind words Slavo! I feared the colour might be a bit too dark, was quite a challenge to get a result I was happy with. But in combination with the darker toned colour I also think that I got very near the real colours.
2. September 2020, 10:25
Alexander
Radome, refueling flap and other stuff painted now. Had to repaint parts of the cockpit are because of overspray. Still need to paint some very minor stuff, including some sensors and static dischargers. Also a few touch ups on the weaponry.
After that, one or two gloss coats and the plane is ready for the wash.

mooi en proper aan het afwerken ik geloof dat het zo proper ook wel zal zijn als het afgewerkt is
6. September 2020, 15:31
Alexander
I had to use google translator but I guess thank you, Maarten. Although I did some minor and very basic weathering with oil paints.
She's finished now, final pics from the upcoming "foto-shooting" will follow some time this week in a seperate album.

Slavo Hazucha
Great preview - looking forward to the final shots - the F-2 & this camo is just a spectacular sight... definitely want to do one at some point!
8. September 2020, 06:57
Alexander
Thank you Slavo, just remember not to use a resin cockpit if you don't want unnecessary bending of the fuselage - resin landing gears are tricky to implement as well.
