  1. Wow...! Thats really nice...!
  2. Thanks Serkan... One of these days I'll get some pics of the finished plane posted... Had shoulder surgery recently, so I'm not able to do much till I get this other arm fully functional again...! But I just checked out your post... awesome work..!
  3. Nice..! So, now build it...!

    OK... so I wasn't happy with the cockpit... and took a step backward. I cut off the forward fuselage, gutted the cockpit with my Dremel tool, and dug through the spares box. I found an old Airwaves instrument panel for a BAe Hawk, cockpit tub from an Academy T-50 ( which I separated from the rear tub, and modified to fit), a seat persuaded to fit from a Hasegawa F-104, and some strip detailing... Its ready for paint again now...

    Heck yeah... pinch that idea... It would be great to see some imaginative markings...!
  6. More to come soon....

    I thought of that too... Also a possibility..!

    Thanks Andre...! This is only my second crack at a WHIF design, and I kind of made a set of rules for myself. I can only use paints I've already opened, unused spare weapons, and only decals that are leftover or spare. I dont have the colors you mentioned, Iraqi decals or an Exocet missile. I'm leaning toward a multi-color camouflage, and markings from a country that didn't operate the Etendard. (The Netherlands is a possibility by the way!) But thanks for your input.... it's helpful and motivating to have the encouragement!

    Working on a set of wings now.... These are re-worked Hasegawa F-18A wings... reduced the chord, removed the wingtip missile rails (for now anyway), removed and shortened the flaps, and sanded away the wingfold and flap hinges. Also working to add just a bit more sweep to them....

    Slow progress, but finally managed to squeak out a little work on this one... Got the tail attached, along with some card filler to start shaping and blending in the parabrake housing and the small ram air vent I'm putting on the front edge of the tail....

    The interior of the Academy kit is sparse, and the color of the real cockpit is black. I added some generic detailing just for interest... the only thing that will draw any attention anyway will be the still TBD ejection seat...
  12. Not sure yet exactly where this is going... just having fun with it. Academy 1/72 Super Etendard, aftermarket Harrier FA.2 Blue Vixen radar, Hobbyboss Rafale tail, Revell F-16 parabrake, Revell Typhoon nozzle....
  13. Can the 1/144 Roden VC10K.3/4 kit be used as the basis for conversion to the shorter VC10 tanker variants (K.2 and C.K1)? If so, where would the fuselage be cut and shortened?
