F-35A Italeri 1/32 ready
Painted with Mission Models MMP-083 Have Glass Grey FS36170 and Testor Model Master Neutral Gray FS36270. Decals are Furball Aero-Design "F-35 Anthology Big Scale Lightning IIs". Tail markings are 388 FW, 34 FS, Hill AFB, UT.
This thing took a lot of TLC and patience during the build. The lower fuselage was warped to the point I almost tossed the build. I was able to save it once the fuselage went together by leaving tape wrapped around it for 12 hours.
The wing to fuselage gap is horrible! I wish I would have filled it more but it didn't look bad until the final topcoats were applied and I wasn't going to re-prime and re-paint those areas.
Assembly was straight forward and many parts slid right into place ,amazing. Overall, I am extremely pleased with how the build turned out. Yes, the Have Glass Grey appears silver or grey depending on light and angle.
I haven't built anything in 1/32 since 2006, I think I'm hooked on this scale.
