There, see? It was full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. And now you've broadened your horizons and exercised newer skills :) You progress, young padawan.

 

It's like an entire forum filled with my dad, if my dad built models or had the slightest interest in anything I did. I...I'm tearing up. 

 

Anyway, painted all the remaining white bits, need to gloss them, paint two grey pylons, alclad some metallic landing gear bits, and weather it. Good thing I'm working from home tomorrow.

Fair, but my mum's pretty neurotic. (That's where I get it from.)

Looks good to me PC - good job! That said, you have to be happy with it or it'll play on your mind I'll bet.

Happy to take an Uncle spot if we're forming a family group :)

I like the look of the scratched mudguard, even if you don't.

 I could be the annoying cousin you never liked.

I volunteer for the rôle of older and slightly eccentric brother about whom the family seldom speak because of his somewhat outré political views.

 

You see, now you have acquired an entire loony family, and all because you procrastinated about scratch building a nosewheel ice-scraper johnson.

Bostin stuff Mr P. I'll assume the role of an older eccentric cousin if that's ok.

Though not designed to go on closed (although Fencers almost always have the gear bays buttoned up on the ground, with some coaxing, they can be made to fit the real way:

The photos conceal some of the flaws. Fine by me.

The bombs are added, but need a dullcoat and maybe a wash. Russian KAB-500Ls I've seen photos of seem far less weathered than NATO smart bombs.

Still need to do the wing tanks, and finish up any underside weathering I care to do. But I can claim this done as 2016 build in good conscience, I think.

You're all Marcia to me.

She has an incredibly pyramidal nose in that photo. I'm guessing that if she lay out flat on a sunny day you use her as a sundial.

It says something really great about you that this is where you mind goes at the thought of Marcia Brady laid out flat.

Great work PC. The guard worked out and the canopy in that first of the last bunch of pics looks Ace, but nothing is as sublime as in that same first shot a peg holding a peg holding a cocktail stick holding a missile. Wow! 

:king:

Does that mean he has to stay online? From what I read here earlier we are his family....  (I'm probably the guy who is the friend of some far off cousin you only meet at grandma's birthday and who never says much, but when he says something, it is a pit painful... Well, I can only say: it's, nice to be yourself!... although... oh, nevermind )

 

But I do agree that the Fencer looks finished, and it is a wonderful job. Very well done, sir.

(although now I do fancy a go at a soviet jet myself now. They are nice looking models, aren't they? Just what I need, another vista of modelling opportunities opening up)

I was looking forward to seeing the masking coming off of the clear screens and it most certainly looks brilliant!

Great work indeed. This thread has incubated some sort of weird desire to build one of these as well, which is quite weird as I had no interest in this type before.

 

With an extended family like the one "appearing" from the swamp mists of BM, I'd be quite concerned...!:lol:
