I do like a Tomcat and this is turning out to be a serious detailing build. I like the way you are approaching this build.

I also sharpened the edges of the air intake.

The wife: "Why do you put your magnifying glass beside your computer screen?"

Me: "Because of Rymulus"

The wife: "Romulus?"

Me: "No, it's Rymulus. Romulus simply founded Rome".

A little update. I have finished the next elements of the radar antenna. I added a few elements to the base of the antenna, while all the electronics behind the antenna were made from scratch.
This is the component given by the kit manufacturer.

And this one built by me, the whole consists of 72 parts.

Just curious - are you a Lilliputian? I am at a loss to ascribe your ability to scratchbuild such tiny details to anything else. You must be incredibly small yourself.   :)

 

Cheers,

Bill

 

PS. Bloody amazing work - and it keeps getting better.    👍

Lovely catch up. Your work is stunning as ever. Have you considered making larger kits? I can’t even imagine the amount of macro detail you might achieve on a 1/32 or even 1/24.  Bravo that man. 👏👏👏

I'm done with the radar. Initially, the front of the antenna was from the set, finally I removed it and made a new one from scratch. This makes the antenna more like the original.

I also installed the antenna base and did the missing cables.

In the future it will look like this.
