Thanks Kai for the info on the tissue. I'll definitely give that a go on my next cat build.

Little update today. Wheel ba, cockpit and radar were succsessfull installed into the front fuselage. Quite a good fit I must sax, just twi minor gaps were the radar fits, but nothing to talk about. I dryfittet the nose cone and it seems to be a good fit again. A little pressure with a rubber band while drying should do the job. Finally I put the "it never will be seen" gattling gun in. Up to this point no problem

BUT as I startet with the dryfitting of the covering panels of the gun, the first one on the muzzle didn't fit at all. there was a gap of about 1 mm in th front. So it was time for a little surgery again. Cutting off quite a decent amount of plastig on the front of the gun assembly did do th trick.

Tomorrow I will put in the guncovers and the bottom plate of the front fuselage. And then we will see the amount of filling, sanding and rescribing that has (hopefully not) to be done.

See you.

Hello,

after some days of stuggeling with Windows 10 a little update: The gun bay is closed. nose cone and the bottom plate of the front section are installed. It was one of the harder parts of the build up to now, mainly because of the front panel of the gun bay that gave me a littel step to the nose cone. So sanding and rescribing had to be done. And maybe ther is more after putting some black paint on ist, but I pit this section to the side to start with the wings.

In therory this should be an easier part of the build, BUT ther were some nasty sinkmarks on the flap covers(?) on the underside of the wings that has to be filled. Another well known problem is the stupid part breakdown on some parts of the kit like the ailerons/flaps, that forces you to fill the seamlines. This has been done and the next sjob to do ist a complete rescribe of the underside of the flaps. There are no panellines at all.[confused].

A nice weekend to everyone.

Hello  to  all.
Sorry  for my long absence, but some nasty private issues kept me awyy from the bench for over two months. I started the build again in the first week of November and hopefully I will be able to finish the Tomcat before this GB ends.

I put the main fuselage halfs and the intakes together. Unfortunatly the kit shows the air-intake-ramps in the wrong (lowered) position for a plane on the ground, To correct this issue, a lot of scratchbuilding had to be done and tbh I didn't have this motivation at the moment. So I have to live with th wrong position. Th fit of the cockpit to the main fuselage was OK on the top, but left a nasty gap on the bottom. Some filler and plasticcarrd took care of the problem. No need to be very accurate with this filling job, because the seam will be covered with two pylons. The whole fuselage looks quite messy because of the mix of primer, filler and the black "seam-check-lines", but I'm quite happy with the current state of the build. Here are the pictures.

There is some sanding and rescribing left to be done,  but by the end of the week it should be ready for the primer. To get familiar with my new airbrush (H&S Infinity CR+ [biggrin]), I startet with the paintwork on the wings, stabilizers, external fuel tanks and the landing gear.

Thanks for your patience and see you soon.

I hope all the private issues calmed down and you can enjoy building. Your spray work is looking great. The preshading is showing trough very nicely.

I think we all hate the part of a build when its primer, seam check black, filler, sanded areas, etc. I always do a "silent wow" when I go to the next page in a build and see everything cleaned up and painted. Gives me hope! I agree that the AB work looks really nice.very nice indeed.

Thanks for the nice comments. OK, finally the primer is down. The pre-shading was a nice training session to get a feeling for the new AB. The base coat of light gull gray will be the next step, so hopefully I'm ready for decaling on the next weekend.

While the paint is drying, I will start with the wheel well doors. Should be a nice PE-orgy [rolleyes]. May be I have to dig out my good old soldering iron, because soldering seems to be the only method to get a solid joint for the hinges with the doors. There is definitely not enough contact area for a halfway decent joint with CA-glue. We will see how the thing is coming out.

See you next weekend.
