This is my first group build on this Forum. So i decided to build This Kinetic F/A-18 as a CF-188 from the Royal Canadian Air Force as i am canadian and i like building jets ;-). So here are the sprue and decal sheet.. Looking forward to building this kit..  
Box Art 




Next is the clear parts i left them in the bags they look to be really good comes to canopies for the single seat and for the double seat. Think i'm going to build mine as the double seat..



Going to build mine as the 3rd one down on the sheet

So i'm really bad remembering to take pics as i build.. once i get into the build i forget about taking pics. Here is a pic of the cockpit all together. I used the kit decals in the cockpit they went down real nice and changed the white part to flat black as i couldn't find any pics of the real F-188 having it white in the cockpit.
 


Next the Cockpit was put in the fuselage and the top and bottom fuselage was joined together No fit issues yet. :-) 


Next the nose was put together then added to the fuselage.. here i had to cut the line up pins off the nose as it put things way out of line.. Other then take the nose fit perfect  
Thats all for now photobucket don't want to play nice today..

Well finely got photobucket to work so here is a update.
Started to put together and add the leading edges, they fit really good 



Next the put together and add the flapes and no problems here either..






Next to add was the vertical stabilizer and rudders.





There is more done but i have no idea where the photos went so that's it for now. Hope to have another update soon..
