Just amazing, I love your build.


By the way I have a question; is there a lot of sanding work with this 3d printing process?



There is quite a bit of work to do on the fdm prints, the resin prints no much to do except remove supports and light surface touch ups.

Hello all,


Got a good bit of the cockpit done.


Construction article here…


Had a great time working on this. I’ll say this is the first time I’ve added dust and dirt to a model cockpit.  Many photos of these jets show a good bit of dust and dirt and nothing ventured nothing gained so I went for it.  Photos exaggerate the effect, mostly because with so much black paint lots of contrast is needed to see details.
























Hey what’s a tank doing here?  Read the article….




Thanks for checking in guys…

No way, those are pics of the real thing, yes? 


Just amazing work. I really had to look at the photos close. I honestly thought you had inserted some photos of the real thing. Your work is nothing short of masterful.

Is it just me or are others as dumbfounded as I feel? I surmise those photos are of the

kit parts, but its difficult telling the difference between the model and the real-deal. I'm

almost lost for words, or have temporally forgotten how to properly express myself. So

continue doing what you do and I'll just watch and be amazed!

Gorgious paint job, Tim!  Looks very realistic!  What do you call that thing on the lower left side -- the one with the coiled cable?  I see it on pics of other aircraft -- is it a hand-held microphone?

The technical name is a utility light, but also known as a grimes light.  Not sure how it works on the Jag but in the planes and helicopters I flew, the light has a dimmer and beam adjustments and you could change color, white to red or white to blue on night vision goggle compatible cockpits.  It’s basically a wired flashlight, it pops out holder and the pilot can use it to find stuff or read his kneeboard.
