I've been very, very busy...I followed everyone's work very closely even though I didn't post much (mainly viewed at work on my phone [wink]), the work and banter was up the the usual GM high standards [thumb]

What can I say about the kit?...
She was a challenge to put it lightly...not something to be attempted by anyone with less than say...10 competed projects under their belt (depending on how quickly they learn) the decals and intake alone would scare off many people. But as a first release from a new manufacturer I am well impressed!
I caused myself a lot of the extra work by closing up the bomb bay and gear doors, taking out the intake seam, removing the excess deal film, smoothing off the nose and modeling with the wings up...but IMO these things needed to be done to not only get the most out of the kit but show off some of the coolest features of this unique aircraft. I hope you think it was worth it as well!

Kit: Freedom Models FD18001, aftermarket wheels from Must Have Models and base from Uschi van der Rosten (neither one recommended), Skunkmodels USN tractor, digitally enhanced photo base printed by Mpix
Paints used: Stynylrez primer, Model Master Acryl, Tamiya Acrylic, Flory Models Washes

This is the best shot I could get of the intake, also good shot of the nosejob.

This is the "money shot" as far as I'm concerned...frankly I'm amazed I pulled this off!


Surface detail is amazing, and the decals will behave if you remove the excess film and beat them with a big enough stick (Solvaset).




HMMMM...flash didn't fire?



















Thanks for following along and for all the encouragement...I really needed it at times!

Jason,

Congrats on finishing the build. Looks very clean and your attention to details in the undercarriage is great. Well done on going outside the usual for the GB.

Cheers!

Sean

Wow Jason, what a beautiful finish. Looks like the real thing to me and all your attention to the seamless finish and details is showing very well. And those decals look like painted, very well done. In every aspect a very good build and cool subject - congrats!

A lovely model, amazing finish and decals.

That stynelrez gives a great smooth base for the main colour.

Nice.
