I'm almost done, just need to glue the pylons, fuel tanks, ant & probes. the painting stage went great i'm really pleased with the result. did some heavy weathering and tried some new techniques (like salt, heavy post shading and much more).
Got the aeromaster decal sheet just in time and it went very well without any problems.
Hope to post the final reveal next week. sorry for the lack of updates, i don't have much free time...
Adding photo of the model during the salt weathering stage.

Nice work mate, getting close now. How tricky was it getting all the salt off after?

Removing it from the model was easy (soft brush under flowing water) removing it from the paint booth was harder...

That's it, i'm done!!!!
now I've got to make a display base. 
get ready... will do a reveal post next month or so.

this kit was the most challenging one I've ever dealt with, broken upper fuselage, a lot of flash, sink marks and fit issues.
the kits decals were a disaster (yellow, fragile and thick), therefore I've decided to go with the aeromaster decal sheet (good quality).
I'm very pleased with the end result, the model is a low vis bounty hunter and a very dirty one so i had used a lot of "first time" (for me) techniques: salt weathering, bleaching, post shading and more.
I did some scratch building on the cockpit, added a resin ejection seats and some ordnance from the hobbyboss kit, other than that it's OOB.
hope you all enjoyed,
here is a sneak peek:

thanks for watching,

This is looking great. The salt-weathering is adding a very interesting layer to your build and makes it very realistic. Might try it myself... If I'm brave enough ;-). Looking forward to your final reveal!

Nice weathering. I used the salt technique as well and it came out really good.  Cleaning up after is a bit messy.
