Hello Everyone,

  This will be my first group build and I'm really looking forward to it.  As I am Canadian I will be building a 1/48 scale CF-188 in one of the special paint schemes that the RCAF has come up with over the years.  When I first saw this scheme I knew right away that I had to build it one day and now is the time.  The kit and decal set has been in my stash for over 10 years now.

  Here is my inspiration....

  Now for the kit, I will be building the 1/48 Hasegawa CF-188A Hornet.  Here are pics of the box and sprues....

And here are the decals, These are made by a Canadian company called Leading Edge Models and they look great, and a little scarry.

  Well, sorry if I dragged on a little too long but as I mentioned before I'm looking forward to this build and my first group build.

  Not sure when I'll get to starting this kit but hopefully soon.

Thanks,

Well, I couldn't wait to start this kit so I got a little done last night.  Not a lot of progress but I started painting the cockpit and ejection seat.

And I also got the wing bottoms glued in place.

As I'm sure some of you have built this kit before, you will know that fit can be an issue.  I find if I take my time test fitting parts, the fit isn't all that bad.

Not sure I mentioned it in the original post but I will be building this kit out of the box except for the decals and I will also be depicting this in-flight on a stand.  My plan is to bend acrylic rod into a nice curve but I have never attempted it before so not sure how it will turn out. 

Thanks for looking and for all the comments,

Tim

Nice start Tim. Never build a hornet before but I'm sure you're going to be fine taking your time dryfitting everything.

Hi everyone,  I got a little more work done this weekend.  I started by finishing painting the control panel.
[DSC_0208_1486939214645_zps2bhztcug] 

And then fitting the pilot in place and positioning his arms and head.
[DSC_0211_1486939216226_zpswbwpxxfz] 

Once I got the pilot seated I thought to add a little detail I would make some seat belt straps.  So I split some flat lead wire.
[DSC_0212_1486939215886_zpsxyt9nu19] 

And then glued them in place, to be painted later.  I left some extra to be trimmed off after the pilot is in place.
[DSC_0213_1486939215380_zpscxmch0dc] 

Then I got the pilot all glued together and primed.

And here he sits painted and seated in his office.

Very nice work on the cockpit and the pilot looks great. The back wall of the office has more detail than my fancy 1/32 kit, lol
