Hehehe I can teach you a few lol, I have heard it said that there are no swear words in the Welsh language I don't know where that came from ! There are plenty they just don't sound as bad as English cuss words and most have more than four letters lol

Weather here today is scorchio ! So I'm alternating between the garden and the cave
I sanded out the last round of filler and it's getting close to seamless inside the intakes now

It all looks and feels smooth enough, but I need to primer now to check

A quick blast reveals a few pin holes but it's not too bad

I'm going to let this dry, and then hopefully just a bit of mr surfacer here and there will be enough, I don't think I can face another fill sand session !

And I'd better tidy my bench up it's a bit of a mess, I don't want to risk knocking anything else over lol

I cleared the decks a bit and put down a clean sheet of white paper, I've been doing this for a little while now and I prefer to my large cutting mat which is getting a bit worn !

The pinholes and defects in the filler have got a bit of mr surfacer, I'm hoping that after sanding this off they will be done !

And I started on the sidewinder pylons and TERs

I hope to get these painted and finished today

I was about to paint the pylons, and thought I had better check the instructions for the etch set, and sure enough there was a few bits to add the missile pylons
A couple need to go on the bottom

A couple of drops of cyno and they are done

The only problem is that they cover the slots that the bomb racks fit to, so I will have to drill and pin them on

There are some small parts that need to go on the ends of the missile rails

It adds a nice little bit of detail to an otherwise plain area

Primer on

The surfacer on the intakes was dry enough to sand out

I gave then a quick coat of white primer, and while they are not perfect and really could do with another fill, I am going to call them done !

That's great progress Pete, the etch on the pylons looks superb, and 10 out of 10 for perseverance on those intakes mate.
Good luck with the rest of the build.
Best wishes
Gary

Thanks Gary, yes the intakes were a pain lol, they aren't perfect but the pics of the real ones show that they are far from smooth and seamless, so mine are uber accurate lol ! The etch makes a bit of difference I just pray it stands up to being drilled so I can fit the TERs, how hard would it of been for eduard to put slots in the etch and supply covers if you need them ? Now that the intakes are done things should speed up a bit

That is going to be huge! Way to go for it with modifying those intakes. I bet you will have it sorted out before long.

Thanks mate ! Yes lol, it is a big model I'm going to have to start hanging them from the ceiling lol ! The intakes were hard work but it will be worth it in the end , I really didn't want to have to put covers on them, as I will most likely have the crew in the cockpit and the jet on a base powered up

1st job today was to drill the pylons so I would be able to fit the bomb racks under them, I was worried about drilling through the etch but the bit went through easily

This enabled me to glue hyperdermic needles to support the TERs

I glued them in then clipped them to size with side cutters as this helps avoid bits of super sharp shrapnel flying round the cave lol

I wanted to paint the inside of the sidewinders a dark metal colour, so out with the tape

Then sprayed alclad steel, this will provide a bit of contras when the missiles are fitted, as there is so much white

I made a bit of a schoolboy error here, I had sprayed the pylons white and glossed them ready for decals, but I forgot to put them on, and applied the wash !
