Back after 30yrs, unpacked my stuff and I don't think my paints and rusty tools will cut it. I don't know when resin and photo etched started, but I don't remember it being about all those years ago, so a steep learning curve to come. [IMG_00171_zps2fa9f1d7]  [IMG_00021_zps3ac7792a]

Looking forward to your build and I have to admit, I only back a few years after a 30 year hiatus as well. I was completely speechless at where the hobby had gone in those years, not to mention how expensive everything had also become ... butr I geuss everyting has.

Good luck on this. I will be doing the same kit for my first group build as well.

Have you decided which version you are going with yet re the decals?

I remember those airfix tinlets ! I bet the paint is still usable after a good stir too lol, what paints will you be using ? Acrylics are very good these days, I think many of us have come back to the hobby, I did a few years ago, and it is amazing how far the hobby as come and what products are available to us. Good luck on your build, we can all support each other through this !

Not decided yet on what decals version, will  just see how it goes first I think.
I have got some new xtracylix and Vallejo model air paints, going to test the xtracylix later for the cockpit
in gray.

I've not opened any of the tin's, even when new they tended to be thick and lumpy

thanks all for comments and support

Hehe, I remember the lumpy paint very well, I used bike it down the paper shop with my pocket money 1st thing in the morning to buy a 1/72 airfix kit, it would be built and painted with what ever colours I had kicking about, and be decaled and hanging from my bedroom ceiling by lunchtime ! Happy days lol
Xtracrylics dry with a gloss finish (just in case you weren't aware) so will need a matt coat over the top after drying, but being gloss helps skip a clear clear coat before decalling

Looking good.

I have given myself until the end of June to try to finish my F14 before starting my Da Nang. If it is not finished then I will shelve it whilst getting on with the group build.
