    I dropped the P-51 in there for scale, both models are 1/72 scale....

    Holy cow, but that flying wing is just huge! Looks really nice! If I ever get around to doing mine, I was thinking of doing it in a flying display as it looks so sleek in the air.

    Before you jump in a tackle the wing, read up on the build reviews on it. There are fit issues with the kit, as there seam to be with ant AMT kit. (Don't let the Italeri release fool you, Italeri bought the AMT molds for the wings - prop and jet)

    Well it took longer than I hoped... the nose wheel was a $*%&$(#! It had four parts that had to be installed at the same time, in the wheel well! You couldn't build it outside and install it later. half of the connections needed were inside the wheel well. Several 4 letter words and a lost piece later they were finally done.... So now it is ready for weathering...

    Hey, it looks great!

    A tip, if you combine that four letter word with a five letter word in the same sentence you have a new curse word! I do it, but in Swedish so no-one gets it!

    That is shaping up nicely! Good work, and it's nice to see how much a wash in the panel lines can do to a model.

    Hi mate,
    What's its scale?

    What colors are used for the camo? Maybe my screen cheats my eye! RLM 70/71?

    started decaling my F-15 tonight. There are a lot of overlapping decals and decals that have to cross "rough" terrain so it is going to take several nights.

    Well she has all the decals on now....













    Next step is to gloss coat again to seal the decals then sludge wash the panel lines. Planning to use a medium gray this time, I want the decals to pop not the panel lines.

    I also have to finish the weapons and fuel tank and build the engine exhausts. This kit has 2 sets of exhausts, plastic (the easy way out) and a PE set. I will try the PE set first if I don't like them then the plastic ones go on.

    The paint scheme was for a 50th anniversary celebration of a Japanese fighter squadron.
