what was tricky?

I didn't install the cockpit floor properly.

Since then I've treated all the seams with liquid paper, and added airframe details.

Hoping to do some airbrushing this weekend.

Weapons!! This kit supplies 4 Sparrows and 4 Sidewinders. It's going to look naked without appropriate SEAD weapons.

Can anybody offer 1/72 AGM-45 Shrike, AGM-78 Standard, or AGM-88 HARM missiles please? 2 missiles needed.

PM if you can help.

The underside hasn't really changed since I (brush) painted it a few weeks ago - apart from the overspray in the wheelwells.

Preshading isn't something I've ever tried yet.

nice idea.

are you going to give pre-shading ago? its really not hard and can be quite effective.

and seeing as we are not judging on quality, this could be a good model to try it out on, and it dosnt matter if it turns out ok or not. at least you will learn a good lesson what ever the outcome.

Yesterday, my son spent an hour at a supermarket entrance fundraising with his cadet unit.

I spent that hour in the coffee-shop marking up this:

TodayI've spent an hour in the shed - with my airbrush:

Nice job! :worship:

Did you spray a Klear coat before applying the decals and let it dry thoroughly? Maybe that will help with the silvering. :crying:
