    You set the level quite high! This is perhaps the best Tomcat i've seen so far. Congrats on finishing it! I like everything and especially the weathering.

    Da case: So it's bigger than the original kit box and i did it in parallel with the build. It's a pretty simple construction just a box with the right dimensions, then i split it in 2 halves, attached 2 giant locks and 2 real hinges, and a stiff handle, reinforced the outer edges and filled the insides with insulation. Here is the inside: And how the plane sits inside. These pics are with flashlight, the last one is without. I also put some buble wraps between the plane and the top cover for just in case.

    F-18 ATARS

    Nope, i have no idea about it... just kiddin.... Yeah, the vertical stabilizers are borrowed from the Kinetic's F-18 kit. They are times better than the original HobbyBosse's in terms of profile (thickness) and details.

    F-18 ATARS

    Hi and thx DONG. Yes, i know about that... just thought "well, why not, i had one ready from a number of builds ago and that was the plane to attach it." And of course, i like the combination of flat windows on the undnerside that way.

    F-18 ATARS

    I have a model to show you , built nearly a year ago, an ATARS conversion (Arma Hobby's ATARS pod + DN Models masks for the stripes) from the F/A-18D HobbyBoss 1/48 kit. Don't ask me why i'm posting it right now ... sorry that i did not posted the build pics. But it turned out quite a nice model though. Reminds me of my older builds, oob, with no moving parts or complex mechanisms either. Well, the original HobbyBoss kit went through an overwhelming amount of modifications and improvents. Yet no moving parts here. Just the model as it is, in parked mode, control surfaces droppped, landing gear down, airbrake and canopy open..... Check it out on a few pics: The first one is the real plane with the heavy weathering that i wanted to imitate: and the model. First a few from the underside where the ATARS is more clearly visible. Notice the SNIPER pod on the centerline as well. It's from my long built F-15C. It created a wonderful addition to the glasses of the Atars pod and it's realistic cause even this version of the F-18 could carry guided loadouts. Gotta say, it's not one of my most favorite planes, i still love it, but it become wicked evil. Here is the top. I highly recommend checking out the full-build video There is more from the building, tips, paints, steps, etc. Enjoy!

    F-23A in 1/48

    Hello! If I'm not mistaken, there are no models of the F-23A available. The easiest thing is to do a conversion from the YF.

    Alrighty, i'll need to enjoy it some time like that, clean and sharp. Then, the weathering. Till then, just a few at daylight and one with flashlight: Of course the exhaust decks are not ready yet at all

    That's the last tertiary masking and the final coat of satin. It's nighttime again and hmm.... this flashlight looks pretty effective... And the canopy is unmasked Well, she needs some wiping off dust but overall it went very well indeed.
