It is done! it has been quite an adventure and I have to admit I struggled with Alclad, silvering decals, poor fit, sanding, filling, sanding and resanding. It did learn quite a lot in the process and for this I am grateful. It does not look as good as I expected but for a first jet I will take it and I just really like the high viz scheme. I look forward to the next GB and I hope to improve my game. Thank you for watching.

Thank you Harv. The P-80 is a great subject and I would love to build another one but with so many great kits to build I am not sure when I will get to do that. Could be worse though

Thank you Teresa. This was my first group build and seeing all these great builds going on (including yours) really got me motivated to finish on time even if at times I was close to give up. Now you need to finish your Thunderjet as you had a great start with the pit.

Thank you Tim, your Skyraider looks awesome, I have one in the stash but I am leaning towards a French Skyraider during the Algeria war (NMF finish with colorful nose art).
