    Hi. I have built the same kit and I have not had this problem. Could it be for cut remains of the staple? The lace of all the pieces seemed exceptional. Greetings.

    I forgot to put the ventral fuel tank, which is also finished. This piece in reality does not have panel lines but welding cords but I have decided to change it and redo it to panel lines for two reasons: - The first and main because these cords were reproduced somewhat thick and also did not match in thickness those on one side and those of another when I sinned the two pieces that form it. - Secondly so that there is agreement with the general appearance of the model. It is painted with Alclad Polished Aluminum and the paneling is whit a mixture of black oil and toasted sienna. Cheers. P.D.- As a curious note to mention that the most pointy part of the deposit is the front, unlike the fuel tanks that to date I have seen in western planes.

    Hi all, thanks for your comments. We continue. I have placed some dynamic air intakes on the back of the fuselage. I have cupped them by turning the tip of a new cutter. The front part of the fuselage, under the cockpit, has two fins. In the kit they come thick, as is logical, and in the photoetched set they also come but these have the disadvantage of having to be stuck with cyanoacrylate. Also in photos it is observed that to screw them to the fuselage the base of the fins were bent to serve as support and fastening. The fins have been made of 0.2 mm plasticard refining them a bit and taking as reference those of the gravure, for its base since it is impossible to bend the plasticar with that degree of accuracy I have stuck some small plasticard strips of 0.13 mm. The leading edge of the air intake for the engine is somewhat coarse as it comes in the kit. To tune it I used a lime-shaped file on the inside and then rolled sandpaper 600,1200 and 2500 grain. Finally I polished it with kitchen paper, since it will also be in natural metal and no scratches should be seen for small that are. And the radar radome. I have made some screws, but they really are many more and it is what has to do things from memory instead of constantly checking the photos. The green is the reference MRP-23 for wheel rims and areas related to antennas. The back is Olive Drab H-304 from Gunze. For the metallic of the tip I have used Vallejo MA to brush. Cheers.

    Hello again. I have had this device stopped for a while. Little I have worked on it, but I show the small advance. I hope to resume it soon. A few pictures of the bays of the main landing gear. Greetings.

    Very good work in general, but especially with the paint and the effects of dirtying. Congratulations. Greetings.
  6. I just saw a paint job of many quilates ... Very very good. Congratulations. Greetings.
  7. My most sincere congratulations. You have really got an exquisite model, I have only disliked the iridescent caused by the jet of propulsion in the metallic zone. Only part of the model that I did not find very good. Congratulations. Greetings.

    Show in its purest state !!!! After taking a while looking through toys I can see a real model. Magnificent in each and every one of the aspects that make it look like a real object dwarfed by magical art, but especially in everything related to the landing gear and bays. Simply far above the everyday. Congratulations, fully. Greetings.

    Hi. The nozzles have an exceptional image. How has the painting process been? I also liked the dirt in the paint. Cheers.
