Excellent! Makes me want to get a mop and bucket and get up there and start scrubbing out all that grime :thumbsup:

Fantastic weathering job on her, she really looks awesome !! Something to consider for your next Tomcat build, that small blade antenna on the starboard side nose gear door should be sanded off. They were not present on B models. There should also be a small gray notch, at the lower LH corner of the gun blast muzzle which, often gets missed by most modelers.

Finally a correct tomcat wheatering! I was thinking that no one would make the wheatering like the real planes: With the lighter paint at the border of the upper panels!

For sure, I would be very grateful if you could report how you got to that level of detail in the painting. It could be at least a description of the processes used.

Congratulations!

Cheers, Paulo.

Sorry but the DVDs are out of stock, only the downloadable version is still available but it's exactly the same.

Wow I missed this, too.   I didn't know a Hobby Boss can build up that nicely.  I guess it's really in the hands of the builder.   Jaw-dropping paintjob/weathering.    Need to get that vid, too!

Once you identify and correct the issues...mainly the intake angle...the rest of th ekit is really nice. What is also needed is to shorten the main LG legs...otherwise the cat sits too high.

I do not see a download option on your page...just the 40EUR DVD option...

What is the process for the download, please?

 

thanks
