    Aftermarket exhaust - nice details, good quality:




    Minor imperfection:



    Comparison kits nozzle vs Aires:



    Anyway, I've got cockpit to do. Nice crisp details:



    And few hours later:



    In the meantime, I'm preparing place for cockit. Big plus to Tamiya fo providing nose weight:



    Gluing also, rear part of fuselage and bottom part of wings, lucky fit is very good so no putty required:

    .



    I've recently bought some real colors paints, and since I have a lot of Tamiya paints on rack and no place for new, I had to figure out how to store another few (dozens) of jars.
    I decided to keep them on rotary stand. It is designed to fit my shelves system - similar to hobbyzone but bigger 20x20x40cm (8"x8"x16").
    This is first layer for 12-18 jars, there will be 3 layers and 2 stands in shelf so in total it can hold 108 jars:

    I fit the wheel bays somehow but it leaves a small gap:




    I used the kits screws and a fair amount of CA glue:




    Rear view:

    .




    Now to front bay. Kit vs aftermarket:



    I've painted it as later it will be difficult to access all areas:



    Prepared to glue:



    Fitted quite well, but...



    I had some problems with closing fuselage halves - resin was too high, had to cut some:



    And already with front part of intake and a lot of putty:



    Comparison with CMK intake which is one big part. Nice fuselage details but wheel well is not too detailed:

    've been working on gun and gun bay:

    I recently finished a long build of Su-25 (long as in the meantime model landed in the box couple of times) and was wondering what next. I took me couple of days to decide and take out model which I got very long time ago. It was my second purchase of 1:32 birds, I gave around 50 bucks for it, so it was rather a bargain.
    So here it is my F-16C/CJ Block 50 from Tamiya.
    Apart from model itself, I'm planning to use:
     - Aires Cockpit Set
     - Aires Wheel Bay
     - Aires Exhaust nozzles
     - Wheelliant Wheels
     - M61 gun from Master
     - CMK intake (not sure about this one)
     - Eduard Canopy Masks
     - Master Piot and AoA
     - Master Static Discharges
     - ResKit BRU-57 (probably)
     
    Additionally I have some
     - Wolfpack's JDAMs
     - Wolfpack's JSOWs
     - Eduard's B and C AMRAAMs
     - Eduard's Sidewinders

    I would like to do an Aggressor scheme but they rarely are full loaded, so I have problem here - will se later.

    Due to COVID-19 I'm still waiting for some of above, so it will be long build.

    As of now, I've started with fuel tanks, HARMs and pylons:

    .

    .




    And as I will have aftermarket exhaust I will put engine on service cart.

    .




    Glued engine:

    .




    Now I will add some wiring to engine.

    Thank you Mike

    I've glued the fuselage - bottom is quite nice:



    However top is not - with large gaps:

    .



    And this is worst:



    So putting, sanding all again and in the meantime engine and cart:

    .

    Got struts from SAC, and well, I'm not too happy. Metal is quite soft, you can easily bend most of the parts:

    Another project started some time ago - waiting to be finished.
    So in total I have 3 birds on workbench ;-)

    I will add some Sidewinders from Eduard, Pitot from Master, SAC undercarriage, wheels from Eduard as well as Zoom set:

     


    Starting with seat, wheel bays and intakes:

    .

    .

     
     
     
    This time I will load only 2x AIM-9B Sidewinders, 2x1300L Fuel tanks and 1x Matra missile.

    .

    .

     
     
     
    In the meantime I replaces ugly guns with piece of needle:

     

    And cockpit with Eduard's zoom:

    .

    .

     
     
    So far so good...1
