Nice subject! ?
Typical kinetic kit but its the best we've got for the legacy hornet?‍♂️. There are some workarounds to be found in forums, e.g. internal spacers/sidewalls for the rear part.
Watching!

Also taking a seat, looks quite good so far, like the detail paintwork in the landing gear area as well as in the cockpit. 👍

a bit of progress here, everything is now painted (even though i think i didn't hit the color tone very good, hopefully weathering improves that...) and there is one correction needed as the paint peeled in one spot.

Looking good.

I like double-seaters, so that was the one to go with the kinetic kit 😉

Well that's a real good Blues Hornet Brett, I just finished my A-4F Skyhawk from the Blue Angels. Which Blue and Yellow colors did you used...?
10. October, 06:12
Brett P
Thanks! I used Vallejo Model Air 71.090 and 71.135. It was primed first with Stynylrez grey primer.

Good ol vallejo, very nice result👏🏻

Yeh I quite like Vallejo stuff. I'm just not a fan of their gloss varnish as I can't get it to work properly. More practice required I think.
10. October, 09:02
Daniel
Oh dont remind me...I once had a finished model, glossed it over and it just wouldn't dry...for weeks...last attempt to oven-dry it went south of course and both the model and the gloss varnish bottle went in the bin 😵

Very nice finish 👏👏

Turned out very nice, that Vallejo Blue is looking very good. I'm using mr Color C5 on a C-5/C328 mix base for my F-18A Blue Angel, and this one just has the same tint what's nice to see. Well done with all that paint troubles, persistence pays off 👍.
