  1. The aircraft is not yet in the display case section, because I decided to make alittle vignette. I ordered a grass mat from Polak models Elan13 pilot and mechanic figure: Cheers, Markus
  2. Hi! While some Aires Stuff might have some fit issues, the exhaust nozzle for the P&W engines fits perfectly to the Tamiya kit. I used two sets, and both fit without any need for filler and sanding. Cheers, Markus
  3. I haven't used the Aires pit, but as Manuel said it is alittle bit too short, which is noticeable at the front glare shield. The Avionix / Black Box pit on the other hand fits quite well and looks as spectacular. There is not much cutting required. I used it on my Tamiya Viper build and would recommend it. You can look up the build and the details here: Cheers, Markus
  4. Thank you for the input! So this jet was on cruise in this scheme as well? Cheers, Markus
  5. Hi! I am planning to build the F/A-18E from VFA-31 with the anniversary scheme from 2010 (Bu. No. 166776): https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6940106 I will use the Hasegawa kit and Aftterburner Decals sheet "East Coast Superbug CAGs". For reference, I only found pictures of the jet with completely empty pylons. On one picture it carries inert AIM-9Xs. Was this scheme just for airshows, or what would be a valid loadout for this aircraft? Thank you all for your input. Cheers, Markus
  6. Here is the first picture of the finished aircraft: More to follow... Cheers, Markus
  7. Thank you! I mainly used Alclad, white aluminium for the fuselage partrs, steel for the engine and the guns. Details were brush painted with Mr. MetalColor. For the rigging I used Tamiya Metallic Grey. Cheers, Markus
  8. OK, yesterday I took some time and started with the rigging. I used EZ-line for the control wires and Prym knitting elastic for the aerodynamic wire: I also attached the undercarriage. I am also quite satisfied how the bullet above the guns turned out: Cheers, Markus
  9. I forgot to post the progress during the last weeks, and I am goning slow anyhow. However, after the cockpit was completed, I painted the fuselage parts. I used Uschi's wood grain decals on the wooden side panels and the decking. The fuselage was assembled. Decals and decking added: Contrary to the instructions, I used the full windsceen. As the aircraft has no aldis sight, the split windscreen makes no sense. Unfortunately, during the removal of the windscreen part from the parts tree, some fissures happende, resulting in some inperfections on the clear part. After some more decaling and weathering, the engine went on: That is where it stands now. Next up is the rigging, which scares me a little bit. 😉 Cheers, Markus
  10. Sierra Hotel Models has them in 1/48: https://sierrahotelmodels.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/7825416 In 1/32 it is not too difficult to scratch it: Cheers, Markus
  11. Thank you Thats my opinion also 😉 Cheers, Markus
  12. Amazing!! I am speechless. Cheers, Markus
