  1. Well done! Very neat looking model with subtle yet crisp panel lines and not too much weathering. I would have added more fluid streaks for the underside though but this is just me. Then again, if this is representing a fairly new airframe they wouldn't have accumulated so strongly yet. But yeah, I really like this model. One of my favourite types, so it's always great to see a well built model.
  2. The cockpit on this kit looks outstanding and it even shows so well through the crystal clear canopy. Great job, Ken!
  3. A wonderful looking model with a lot of awesome details.
  4. Those panel lines on the intakes... Even without any reference photos I could immediately tell they are pretty screwed, I mean so many times I have studied the pattern. It's hard to believe such details have passed the scrutiny. It's the year 2017 after all. I haven't read that much reviews on the kit (not my scale) but I do hope it's better than the panel lines would suggest.
  5. Okay, I'm not quite sure what to do here. Surely the cockpit angles are way too different and thus (most probably) need fixing. Or at least this is what the PE set suggests. Has anyone done this? How does it actually affect the height of the seats and whether they still fit under the canopy etc.?
  6. I can accept that! :)
  7. Surely a tedious job and will look great when finished, but I have to say (and I'm a real killjoy now, I know...) what a shame that the starting point itself - the Fujimi kit - is so off. :)
  8. And you already made it!? I mean not slowly building and enjoying the process while doing it. And then build some more, but still not finishing it. You know, to spare something for the second or third day too. :)
  9. I really do love that centrifugal compressor jet engine! All in all an interesting kit.
  10. That I will do for sure!
  11. Good!
  12. I was kinda expecting, or at least hoping for this. Great to hear someone might be jumping on the bandwagon! Since we are celebrating our 100 years of independence, I'll definitely get one. On the ninth of June we will see the finished version: http://ilmailumuseo.fi/en/kaivari/
  13. It could be worse! :)
  14. I have some marking options available and my favourite choice would be the first incarnation with large roundels.
