Nice progress on the project. I was wondering the same thing as Ron and thensaw the wing assembly was only dry fit.

Looking real good

Keep 'em coming

Awesome work. And to think you're going all out the the Sabre vac kit at the same time.

Keep 'em coming

Terrific progress on the build. The amount of work and 'kit engineering' that goes into these projects, simply amazes me.

Keep 'em coming

Chosen paint scheme is ,

Checkerboard details on tip tanks and rudder will be masked and sprayed, and serials are drawn in Corel Draw and printed on laser printer, this time on Testors decal paper.

Decals are sourced from T-33 kit, by Czech Model/Sguadron and printed on my home laser printer.

This looks awesome! Really like the Starfire. One thing though, I believe that the insignia shouldn't go over the rocket pod, but underneath it. At least that's how it is on the Kittyhawk decal sheet.

 

 

 

I really like this one, I keep hoping that Czech Model will produce this one in 1/32 after doing the T-33 and F-80.
