Incredibly this is my 8th finished model this year.  This has been part finished for a good 15 years, but very happy with how it turned out.  Only problem was the decals which were very fragile and cracked and shattered very easily.  The yellow leading edge markings were especially bad and pretty much unusable.  The date on the sheet was 2003, and they've been in the loft for most of the past 17 years so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised...…I ended up raiding the decals folder for some yellow markings from an old Tamiya F-84 Thunderjet :) Not perfect but pulled me out of a hole.


The aircraft is from a training squadron based in Japan so I kept the weathering to a minimum.


As she was when pulled out of the loft a couple of months ago



And the finished article
