Hi,

 

This is the first 1/32 kit i've built, in 2009/2010, and i've been hooked by this wonderful scale. (never built any other scale from this time).

It is the tamiya block 50 kit, with the isracast conversion, aires cockpit, wheel bay and exhaust, and isradecals decals.

She stayed unarmed for years, and this week i decided to finish the ornance i've bought for her in 2010. They are Spice bombs and Python 4 missiles from isracast. The quality was not amazing (way far from Flightpath, AMS or Zactoman !), but they at least exist, and one painted they look not so bad.

 

I modify the cushion on the seat, to make the sheep fur type instead of the standard fabric type.

 

This tamiya kit is one of the best kit ever, a real pleasure to build. On the other hand, the aires AM were a pain to set in the kit (especially the wheel bay....). But it's worth it, as they are very crispy and full detailled.

 

The isradecals are great, but instead of using the scorpion decal i painted it in order to have exactly the same sand color than the camo. I transfered the drawing of clear masking sheet, and cutted a stencil.

 

Here is a link to the begining of the build : http://fighters.foru...-block-40-barak

Excellent! Getting ready to start my first 1/32 jet (Greek F-16D Block 50) literally tonight and I'll confess, the ordnance is what terrifies!

Fantastic build. Fit and finish is simply stellar. Totally agree about the Aires Resin being worth the cost and extra work to get them to fit. I never understood why a company that can produce such detailed parts, just can't go the extra mile and make them fit a lot better.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Totally agree with you ! I wonder if they only try to fit their stuff, really... It seems they do not.

Stunning Viper you have there, I am quite envious!  Good decision on painting the Scorpion artwork as the decal is not very close to the recommended paint IMHO.  I would like to use the Aires Viper bits (especially the gear bay) but the fit frightens me!

 

Very, VERY well done- you ought to be very proud of that one.
