I finally was able to start this build. Cutting and cleaning all those beautiful resin parts... on my balcony - safety first :-). Here are some better pictures of the cockpit and wheel wells. The amount of detail is amazing!








The Aires instructions are pretty much useless btw. The don't explain what parts of the kit needed to be trimmed. All they say is "Warning: thinning of plastic parts and dry fitting of the assembly needed!"... lol.
Next will be the scary part, cutting the fuselage and trying to fit the cockpit as snuggle as possible. Will take it really slowly and trying not to mess up. Definitely out of my comfort zone here but excited to try out new stuff ;-)

Very nice resin parts. It's a real temptation to use one of these in a future build, but I know my brushpainting skills. But maybe I should go with the motto of the SAS: Who dares wins.

Yeah, painting all those details will be... ähhh... interesting :-/. But first I have A LOT of cutting, sanding and dry fitting to do to fit this beauty into the fuselage. A part of the fun, lol

Edit: no risk no fun ;-)

I'm getting a great sense of deja-vu. You've chosen the best fitting Phantom kit, just be very careful Fabian, when you get to those intakes, we all had great fun with them on the Group Build.

edit: it pays to look at the thread from page 1, I see you have a set of seamless intakes, my mistake.

OMG...he did...for the 1/72 Kai.

...I'm going back to bed...I'm losing my marbles [smile]

Sorry Fabian, too many meds in my system (forget the Alclad Pete!. I've found something better.)

Thanks for the correction Steven. [thumb]

I'm looking forward to that too... Primer is already on, leaving to dry overnight. Maybe I can put some grey on tomorrow... and looking for some VERY tiny brushes :-)
