  1. I continued with the assembly of the fuselage. I decided not to follow the instructions and first glued top and bottom halves together before joining forward and main fuselage. I also attached the wings to the upper fuselage first to get a nice transition between fuselage and wing top surface. After attaching the forwar fuselage, filling and sanding started. And the fuselage is ready: Cockpit parts added: On the bottom, I accidentially removed the location bar from the right wing outboard pylon, so I had to drill registration holes. With the leading edge flaps, flap hinges and canopy installed, the Super Hornet is ready for some paint: Cheers, Markus
  2. Hi! Yes, these are decals on the cockpit instruments. From Afterburner decals. Also yes to the QB seat. This is for the F-14D, although both seats have the same canopy breakers. They are the same height as the kit ones and fit the SH perfectly. Cheers, Markus
  3. Hi Folks! I recently started a build of a Hasegawa F/A-18E Super Hornet in the Anniversary Scheme of 2010. kit: Hasegawa 1/48 Decals: Afterburner Decals "East Coast SuperBug CAGs" and Afterburner Decals "Super Hornet Upgrade Set Aftermarket: Quickboost Seat Quickboost ECS vents Phase Hangar seamless intakes Eduard GBU-38 Tamiya AIM-9X, AIM-120 and GBU-12 (from the F-16 kit) I started with the cokpit, using the decals from the Afterburner Upgrade set. They are marvelous, although I am not sure if the grey color is correct... The Quickboost seat with paint and decals: The fuselage required some surgery to fit the Quickboost bard stacks: The small gaps are filled with CA, and will be invisible under the paint. I fitted the fuselage sides and intake lips before attaching the seamless intakes to get a good alignment of the parts. I carefully fitted the intakes to prevent gaps between the intake parts. As they now floated above the wheel wells and were held only by a small amount of CA at the front, I added support struts and secured them with epoxy glue behind the intake fans: looks good so far: Cheers, Markus
  4. Fantastic work! I am happy if achieve this level of detail in 1/48, but you do it on a smaller scale yet! Looking forward to the finished build! Cheers, Markus
  5. The decals are still available! Prices are negotiable 😉 Cheers, Markus
  6. Yes, it is a pity. According to F-16.net, the airframe is still flying. However, since 2014 it wears the standard grey paint scheme. The F-16 solo display team flew their last display in 2014 and was disbanded at the end of 2018 😞 Cheers, Markus
  7. I can only concure to the above statements. It would be incredible in 1/32, it is even more astounding what level of detail you acchieve in 1/48. Cheers, Markus
  8. I don't think so. It just doesn't look so bad from this perspective. Cheers, Markus
  9. Interesting to see this build. Seems there is about the same amount of filling and sanding as for the Hasegawa kit. Cheers, Markus
  10. Looking fantastic! Cheers, Markus
  11. Thank you very much. I also like this colorfoul scheme. Markus
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
