  1. This kit is my first official post of 2021( I have finished a bunch of 1/48 vehicles and figures, but this is my first wing thing) I should call it Lazarus as this thing has been resurrected from the dead multiple times. It started as a Thunderbirds livery, but the white paint started cracking to the point I had to strip it completely. Then something clouded the canopy and I had to refinish/polish it back to something barely acceptable. Then a barn cat found its way in the house and the pitot, landing gear and tail had to be repaired. On and on and on. I have a rule that I never leave a book o
  2. Hi All, I'm ready to tackle this beast finally! I've wanted to do a flaps and slats down version for as long as I can remember. In fact, the white (yellowed) plastic in the pics are from Circa 1987/88 Anywho. I - very carefully - cut the flaps and slats with the intention of making an internal structure for the wings.

  3. Fantastic job! A couple questions regarding the det cord; 1. would you mind sharing the .svg file for the cut? 2. did you make it yourself, or get it from another source? Again, great work on the jump jet, you should be proud. Mark
  4. Mathy, your work never fails to inspire. Great job!
  5. Wow! Really nice job. The definition of a silk purse from a sow's ear.
  6. Fantastic job! really nice weathering also.
  7. I don't know that I can add to the praise. Well deserved praise, btw. Never been interested in this kit, until seeing you work. Congrats.
  8. Really nice job. And I always dig the in flight displays! When I built mine, I noticed the gear doors weren't really engineered for gear up. How difficult was it to adapt the "gear-up" build? Mark
  9. Great job and presentation! I was slowly perusing, thinking "man, that shape looks familiar", and chuckled out loud (COL?!?) at the last few pictures. Thanks for the laugh and congrats on a job well done. Mark
  10. Beautiful job on this kit. Even as well as it fits, your canopy and windscreen look PERFECT! Nice work.
