So the new project we be the lovely Airfix 109E-3/4. I'm painting it up as an E-7 and won't fret about any minor differences the E-7 might have.

 

This is the bird I will be doing.

Everything that can possibly be painted will be. I've already spent a few hours making up canopy masks, vectorizing and sizing up the art work.

 

I think I got gun barrels and seat belts with it when I purchased it from a fellow LSPer. I will use what I have but nothing else. Going to be SOOB other than that. 

 

This is another tolerate the build so I can paint it scenario. It's all about the paint.

 

Building shall commence later this day.

I forgot to produce a pic of my preliminary artwork. These are all ready to go, they just need to be turned into a cut file. I'll probably scan the IP and make some masks for it as well.

Ok, so I said I was going to start last night. Had some work stuff come up and had to make it happen.

 

When I got home from work this evening I went upstairs to the laboratory and decided the place needed a bit of a cleanup. 3 hours and bag of trash later it's done. I have a couple armor geek buddies coming over Saturday night to wreck some styrene. So, rather than make them work on the floor, I made some space.

 

Here's the laboratory.

It begins. This is all the aftermarket I have for it. There's some serious lack of detail in the wheel bays and I'm unsure weather I'm going there or not. I said I was not but we'll see when I get there. I was also going to blow through the cockpit but there's a surprise guest spot coming down the pike.

I may have mentioned this is all about the paint for me. There's another scheme calling to me. An E-4 <|5+ but I think I'll stick to my guns on Black 10. That faded tail band has my attention.

 

That's all I got. Headed up there now...............
