Welcome to my all in one stop of ongoing projects.  Figure there isn't much sense in creating multiple posts for each kit I bounce between, especially since there's no guarantee I'll actually get to the finish of them in the window.  :chair:  Original GB posts will be updated w/ progress as I go...for anyone actually following them.

Current tally of "active" projects: 6

4 aircraft; 1/48 RAF Mustang Mk.1a, 1/48 JASDF F-4EJ Kai (2021 F-4 STGB), 1/48 US Army OV-1B (2020 Vietnam GB), & 1/48 IDF F-16XL2 (WHIF)

I did get a couple things done on the XL so far this weekend.  The cockpit is pretty much done with the exception of the control sticks and seats.  I've also begun assembly of the Reskit resin engine.

Hello Chris,

 

It would be a pity not to finish these models. Shake the box, sprinkle with a little water and the decal session will be over quickly. :lol:
Joking aside, I would like to see the OV.1 bRONCO a little closer. The paint effects seem to me to be well underway.

 

Regards,

Eric-Snafu35

Here is the build thread for the Mohawk.  Need to mix some paint I'm happy with and get the overcoat down.  https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235078422-whispering-death-ov-1b-mohawk/

It's been a bit, but back with another small update today.

 

Intake fitted and a little nose weight.  Not typically required for an F-16...but the XL has a lot more wing area hanging out aft of the MLG.  Figured better safe than sorry.

Also started on the gear.  You can already see where there will be a little filler required in the intake join.

Test fit of the resin engine before final painting.
