really good job so far, the cockpit looks awesome. Following with interest!
This glue is really good for the panel lines, reminds me that I wanted to get that myself :)

Here's the completed Red Wild Weasel! All fitted out to rain terror on the capitalist dogs. This was a thoroughly enjoyable build and I hope you enjoy the finish.

Slavo Hazucha
Very nice job with a lot of attention to the small details on the plane and ordnance I stand by my build comment that I especially like the upper grey/engine metal combination, that really hits the mark in tone and feeling for the Chinese Flankers!

Glad to hear you confirm the kit too - the results indicate it well enough. I think HB on its later jet molds makes a really good job on the surface panels. Catching the lining just fine, but thin and shallow enough to not look overblown in the end. Especially the underside of the wing on pic 9 - just the right amount of realistic accent.

this one is looking really deadly and mean, very nicely done
8. January, 20:19
Nathan Dempsey
Thanks Slavo & Daniel! :)

Slavo: I'd have to say this one was fairly straightforward build and mostly a breeze to finish. Any hiccups or errors you see are certainly my fault (the slight canopy alignment issue).

Daniel: Yes I really like the armament! It is what inspired the build for sure. Once I saw the YJ-91 (KH-31 copy) I knew I had to do a Wild Weasel.

Oh and a special thanks to the Trumpeter J-10 kit for providing the Chinese air-to-air missiles and the correct yellow numbers.

Wow, that looks fantastic! Congrats
I have the kit too and will use your build as a template!

Just like Roland, very good reference build. Nice model Nathan, you can see the dedication in your craftsmanship... !

Michael Phillips
Awesome work Nathan! Love the weathering and paintwork too. The colorful Chinese markings really "POP" against the dark gray paint. Very appealing scheme choice, well done!

Thanks so much Roland, Jos, and Michael :) :) :)

It looks amazing Nathan. The discoloration you've done to the paintwork is impressive.

Nathan Dempsey
Thanks James!

I had decent pre-shading and the airbrush was treating me well when I laid down the grey.

This year I repicked this build up. I did last year some work on the cockpit and now I put it in place. As this is a test project (first jet model), I imagined more of a fictional build (not to get mad when I mess it up). The pilots have different helms :). I also damaged the canopy when removing the molding line. I also did some scribing on the front area. I will stop the scribing here as I want to compare scribed/non-scribed results on the finished model.
