paint job and weathering of the weapon bays nearly done. Maybe some drybrush after a matt coat.

Welcome Alexander. Small steps forward. A lot of ejector pin marks at the weapons and the bay doors need clean up but could be done. Not far to start painting.

Stash is on the way, trying to find some decent and not too expensive RAM masks...

Thank god the navy didn't give up its use of color on those jets, awesome subject! really looking forward to this one 👍

At least they got the make-up to look right..! 😄

Looking forward to your take at the GB as well as to see what the KH kit is worth - I saw the Meng box open, stuff looked all right in there, yet still no purchase followed...

Certainly not building the F-35 anytime soon myself, but happy to be a "loyal wingman" to your efforts!😉

Mail call today... the thing in 48th scale is silly huge lol... like a big clad of plastic, who would want to spend all the paint on that! 😄

Following! I have the KH F-35B and would love to see how the build on this one goes.

😄 Maciej - I haven´t seen the KH box specifically, but had a look at the Meng one in a store and thought - "oh, what a compact kit, is it really 48-scale?" 😄

Nice work mate! What colors did you use for the fuselage? Main color and raised panels?
