One more Thunderjet - DONE!!!

Recommended Posts

After a small vacation in Carpathian mountains (its a wonderful place I should notice) I came back home and here the result - the model gets in the shape and is almost ready for painting works.

Any ideas how I can make a late-type air brake (with a lot of holes) from this early-type one?

I solved the problem with air brake - I used epoxy putty to fill holes, sanded it and than glued foil, after that I made holes using
a cut medical needle

Next step was to paint bombs, I think the process is understood from the photos, unfortunately flash "kills" all weathering effect(((

I like the girl very much, sorry I mean the Thunder jet. I was checking out the model in the newspaper and couldn't see your Thunder jet! The 500lb bombs look good.

Ukrainian women are the most beautiful in the world! I know, I married one of them :) Zaporozhye is a nice city! I have been there. Is the airport still in use? They had many IL-76's when I flew in there and Mig-25's the other side of the airport.

Your Thunder jet is looking really nice.
