Really looking great Tom, an unusual build sequence for sure, but looking great! 

 

Thanks Max! Yes, very true. I’ve been focused mainly on the airframe modifications so far, now hopefully the rest falls together!

Very nice Tom, coming together very nicely.

Andy, thank you! Aside from the intake lip the fit has been impressive so far.

 

Cheers,  Tom

Tom, its been a while since i have done a jet subject but your choice of airframe and the work you've done on it is superb. 

 

I love the tail fin markings, looking forward to the finished build

Thank you! Your encouragement means a lot. Just the thing to help me see it through amidst other distractions, such as my MiG-29. I will focus on finishing up the upper airframe before painting the darker grey next.

 

Cheers,  Tom

I've managed to finish most of the airframe, with just the light fittings adjacent to the intake to modify. The CFT's fit well with clamping, and I used stretched sprue and Apoxy Sculpt for the liner. I added the carbon fiber decals to the exhaust, but haven't yet weathered this area. Paint soon!

 

Cheers,  Tom

Second take on the coloration. I wasn't pleased with the contrast on the tail, then learned that the light grey color was bluer than FS 36375. I sprayed the darker color over the airframe and the tail (gulp), then reapplied the masks for the second application--these masks are some of the most complicated I've ever used. Color me happy!

 

Cheers,  Tom

Thank you! It’s definitely not an out of the box build, but I’m happy with how it’s turning out.

 

Cheers,  Tom
