If it was a caption competition, the guy in the intake could be saying:  "If you weren't planning to hit the start button, how come you've got your ear defenders on?"

That's the real reason they were black, so the dirt didn't show. All that RAM business was a con.

I thought the caption should be, “If you hit that start switch I’m going to thump you in the f%#cking head with this mag light”. I had that happen one time on a 16, I wasn’t happy.

Thanks for your continued support John.

 

shan, not aware of any weapons bay art work post GW1, as I assume was the case with Caracal. Mind you, don’t really need any more ‘art work’ in the WB!

 

Thanks Steve, you put me on the right road for the GBU-27 fusing wires.

 

CO, thanks, going for a good WIP finale.

 

Matthew, I would fail to see any humour in such so called practical jokes. I believe a similar thing was done with ejection seats. Yeah real funny.

 

Next up is hours of masking NG and MG bays, weapons bay and cockpit, so that may not be for a while.

 

Regards

John.

After weeks of masking, spraying, masking, spraying …… , this brings to an end my 117 build and a 12 year run with WIPs.

 

‘Blacks’, not just a dust pain when painting, but taking photos.

Good modelling.

Terrific result John. Making the black of a Black Jet look interesting is no easy task.

 

I hope you'll treat us to a full photo walkaround so we can all appreciate the work you've put into your model.

+1 in the awesomeness of this build. I especially like the clean look and the dropped control surfaces. The angled photos should be amazing...

Hi John

 

I am trying to build my F-117 and your work was just awesome! I would like to use your work as reference to my build especially the bomb bay but I just noticed that some pics were deleted!

 

May I kindly ask if any chance I can retreat the pics so that I can follow the build?

 

Thanking advance for your kind attention and assistance.

 

With kind regards

 

Duke
