Congratulations to everyone! Some beautiful work here in the last 2 pages. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

High quality indeed, I wish I could be by my stash and tools right now! I really miss sanding, spraying and gluing!

All these builds look GREAT! I'd have a hard time picking a favorite, but I DO really like the Viper with German flag colors on the tail... must be my paternal Grandpa talking... ;)

Better late than never, this build is complete. You will note that I haven't shown the port gunbay in the finished build pics. That is because I can't get it open, lol. I will continue to try to pry it open and will add a pic when I do. I have a display place set aside for this build in tribute to my father-in-law and will also post a final picture when it is ready. Thanks for all your patience and to all of you who have been so supportive and viewed this thread so often. I appreciate all of your support and comments and hope you enjoy Sabre 534.

Very nice Don. You father in law would be proud. Sorry to see that some of the decals have silvered. That bites. The main markings look like they went down really well though.

Ya done good, buddy! :thumbsup:

Thanks, Mike. I guess my Future coat wasn't smooth enough. I put a lot of Solvaset on them too. I have a spare set of decals from Leading Edge so I will likely strip them off and try again. Appreciate your input.
