Hi Everyone, A while back I started working on this Italerei Starfighter with grand hope of entering it in a local show. The grand plan didn't come to fruition, but I hate having unfinished kits lying around. Even if I know they are lost causes because I can't make my vision come to fruition. You all probably know this box shot: Much of the plastic work is already done, but I started the foil yesterday: I always start with the hardest areas to foil. This is usually the cowling of a radial-engined aircraft, or the wing roots. Being my first jet to be foiled, I automatically assumed the inlets to the engine would be the most difficult. My decision as to where to start was made easier by the fact that these inlets need to be partially covered before being attached to the fuselage is they were to look correct. I like foil. It's not difficult, it's inexpensive, and it looks fantastic in real light. On the down side, it's capricious like a puppy. Just when you think it's going your way, it tears, wrinkles, or gets a tiny mote of dust in it ruining your work. Thank you for looking! Gaz
