Hi Folks,

This is my first attempt at finishing a military model kit in several years. Yep, it's a grey, grey and grey modern jet but it's not one often seen in this scale.

I usually prefer to build cars, bikes and surreal kit-bashed WHIF's but like most of us big kids, a loud fast jet gets your attention from time to time. A growing 'stash' of aircraft kits isn't helping either...

The kit is OOTB, decals and all. The age of the moulds as well as modelling the kit in flight did test my patience somewhat but I'm happy with the end result. I only have two (totally wrong) 'military' shades of grey and the terrible MDF stand base is temporary.

It's a bit long winded with nothing but the obvious stated but it forms a part of my 'extra curricular' portfolio while I'm at College.

Thanks for looking, Lee.

(Edited for line spacing, I needed to print this out...)

I have had this kit stashed away for a long time, from Mildenhall air show! It's a very nice build, I think I'll be digging mine out! Good stuff
