Spanish Starfighter

Recommended Posts




I'm completely naive about this plane, I saw the kit and bought it, silly me I did realize too late that it was the G version which was used by Spain and the rest from NATO countries, fortunately it only requires making an extension transformation in the tail rudder, chuck540z3 wonderful rendition is fantastic guide, hats off to him! so let the adventure begin.






I manage to add some stressed skin for those panel that will be in NMF

The G-model also had bulged main wheel doors to accommodate the wider wheels and tyres.  Your reference book may show this detail.

 you are correct, fortunately the kit brings both doors stiles, the Reskit set will work for the wheels

That was nice of Italeri.  Looking forward to seeing this project through.

thanks, talking about these doors, just noticed that Aires made the mistake and used the plain style doors for the G version :wacko:

mostly I have done is lots of resin cutting and sanding, dry fit tests and trimming for the load of goodies, lots of resin dust over the workbench,  looks like  christmas arrived earlier!  it is hard to figure out how to stuff the resins aftermarkets but I feel positive it is working, wish me luck :D
