To start off with i shall be building this out of the box. The plastic looks a littl think and delicate so got to be careful with this one.

I made a start the other day with the pit and some assembly of smaller parts. I also partially primed using hu1.

Assembly of the pit.

Then i moved onto the fuel tanks, adding the other smaller parts i.e the sensors and cowlings. What is annoying at this stage is that you have to install the main gear legs which due to the mature of the plastic can be precarious when moving her about. Also had to install the AN/AAQ 13/14 as the hardpoint is fixed to it.

Some spraying of the U/C

And after they were all applied, all free hand rather than all that masking. Steady hand required though.

Flippin' 'eck! This one's coming along nicely. And quickly! :thumbsup:

You have chosen a completely different order of construction to what I have used. And neither of us have used the one recommended by the destructions! :lol:

I tend to analyise the instructions and choose the best way of construction. As long as you follow the basic you shouldnt make mistakes or miss out parts ;)

Have you chosen the marking scheme for this model yet? Whichever one you do, I'll do the other.

Then I'll do the Negev Sqn one. That's good for me because I really couldn't choose. :)

Progress has been slow on this especially when not a lot actually needed to be done to finish it. Decals on, and I have started to add her load. Just the GBU's to go.
