I had a hard time getting the two fuselage pieces together. The resin cockpit didnt fit in. i sanded down the sides to 0.5 mm and still i had to use a lot of force.
I am having a nightmare about taking pictures of the finished models and it just pops apart. It took me a couple days glueing only parts of the seamline.



But finally i got it together, Hope it stays together.LOL


Pilot, sorry about the quality of the pics.

Nice going! Sounds like you had a real battle with that fuselage. But coming together nicely now mate. Looking forward to seeing more. [smile]

Had the same thing with the cockpit and the fuselage but no way I could sand anything down without wrecking the cockpit. Ended up with a major gap that I filled and sanded and let dry for over a week. Nonetheless, it broke when I picked it up to start laying down the primer ... same kind of work all over again ... Now I am crossing my fingers that it won't break again.

Anyway, nice going. It is really starting to look the works.

Wim.

The Front panel had about 1.5 mm gaps each side because i sanded out so much. i actually glued in a piece of sprue underneath to support it.
Unfortunately the pics are gone. [rolleyes] I suspect my 16 year old son who sometimes uses my camera. i filled the gaps with styrene sheets because you
probably would have seen it looking through the front window. I also put up the HUD stand together (PE) painted it, detailed it, put a nice screen on it, than i picked it up with a tweezer and ping, its gone. cant find it nowhere. I salvaged a new one from a F105 panel.

GAP!!


No Gap



For the HUD i used on of this very thin gift wrapping see through foils, and glued it with Micro Crystal clear to thin clear styrene. If you look from different angles it shines green, or yellow, a bit reddish somtimes. Its a great effect because it looks like the HUD is active.



On roll (roughly $6) can make about 2587456 + Hud displays in 1/48. LOL

The wing









Looks like the preshading is gone in the picture. but its still there.
Big advantage to spray the fuselage and wing separate.


That decal just cracked on settling down.



I took it off and sprayed the red part with citadel

Looking good Thomas, I can just see the preshade in the wing, that's about where I like it too, a bit of subtlety just enough to throw the tones around a bit. Very nice.
In some of those photos the AK Light Gull Grey looks like it's got some pearlescence to it?  I use those very same paints so I know they don't. [smile]

Simon the pearly effect is probably from the Future i sealed the whole thing in. i am almost finished with the model. just weathering and little nicks nacks to put on.
Hopefully i get the carrierbase done soon as well. i wll try build that from scratch.

After a couple coats of Klear i put on a sludge wash (Flory's grime) and started weathering.





Streaking made with oil and turpentine. Also the Hydraulik areas were highlited with a very thin coat of Citadel's Huil and Oil



Thanks for looking. More Pics this weekend
