Gone well, needs some sanding in parts as scratch marks are visible, and the camo needs to be a bit more intricate to represent the real thing better D382497C-7160-48A5-BE9A-87B8FC3319A9_zps gone so much better, much prefer working with xtracrlix

varnish has helped, should have done it to start with, will do it by default with older decals from now on, dug my hasegawa one out, calling to be done as well, though also could buy myself another revell and do a German one with the decals that came with this one.....or maybe Ill finally start the academy one.......

Missles are finally on, nightmarte doing the stripes, managed to use a cocktail stick on the sidewinders, but the sparrows are stripes of insulation tape, took ages to cut them up

Yay I have broken the cycle, was finally happy with be canopy so the Matt varnish has gone on, will take a few coats to get the fiddly bits around the missles no doubt...will be done in the next couple of days for certain this time...pics latter, just got back from seeing Star Trek beyond

May well be mad, work has started, took the unusual step of primed all the external parts first while k assembled the cockpit . , will mean once it's all togethor I can jump right into painting it, should save me some time 59DB41EE-9F90-4A4A-B3A2-02932F68BD71_zps

Love the Spangdahlem bird in Euro One camo. Shame there are no more decal sets that do them and one must resort to Hase's older kit to source them (which I have been planning to do as well)

All togethor and being painted, had some nasty glue marks appear, hoping they will sand away fine, also the fit of the little vents on the upper fuselage is awful, a lot of sanding is need and there's massive gap on the under side to fill. Hoping these are all nicely fixable, this wasnt cheap by half C92B29FA-5900-452C-BA0E-00F155FEF48C_zps
