Hi Pete, I think your going to like your C. The building part is quite extensive (which I do like) especially the main landing gear, but there is a lot of nice detail waiting for you to get painted and weathered :-). I'm trying to keep my bird more or less clean as the Swiss Air Force is taking very well care of they're equipment. Recently they even sold some of they're F-5's to the US as training aircrafts as they where still in perfect condition ;-).
The resin exhaust is probably the way to go and you might look into some nice seats as well. Btw, nice to hear from you. Hope your doing well buddy! Anything nice on your bench?

Uh, that is a very nice scheme! I was sticking some of the main parts together with masking tape... not so small at all, lol

Yes the landing gear looks very well detailed as does the gear bays, I have looked in the box and there is a huge amount of plastic in there ( absolutely tons of ordinance )
The Swiss birds are very well maintained and clean but being land based must help a little bit too I reckon.
I do have some resin seats for it but I will keep my eyes open for some Aires exhausts for mine.

Nothing on my bench at the moment mate ( I haven't built anything for months ) hopefully I will find my mojo and get back to it soon

Maybe the 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito could give you a mojo boost? Would fit very nice into this GB ;-)

Closed up the fuselage. The two main pieces went together pretty well, the two side panels where a little more challenging.



Some little sanding ahead to minimize a few little steps... nothing major :-)
The nose section went together very nicely. I do like the connection point with the main body. I will give the parts time to dry properly and do some cleaning before gluing them together. Biggest kit so far on my bench ;-)

Thanks :-). This is my first 1/32 jet but I really like working in this scale so far.
A small update: while I try to hide the seam lines on the fuselage I'm keeping my mojo up by working on other parts - as the exhausts... done :-). Glad I went aftermarket with them, pretty happy how they turned out. Here are some pictures






Thanks for looking.

Wow! They look phenomenal! The real, real deal!

I'm really enjoying 1/32 too, can really push the detail [smile]

Continued working on the cockpit. Seats are done and test fitting the crew. As you can see they're a little to high in the cockpit. Little operation needed.


Here they are waiting patiently for they're liposuction. Goose already had his pedicure done ;-)

Pilot and nav looking great, not 100% but I'm sure goose probably wouldn't pass the required fitness tests needed to fly having his toes severed lol

Keep up the great work, im really enjoying this build
