First update is as follows:
I have cleaned all the parts down and have primed the resin parts as I intend to get these out the way first, possibly the weapons too as I always hate doing them at the end!
First up is the standard box shot of the resin. I am not going to bother with the sprue shots as frankly there is LOADS of plastic and you would just die of boredom! What is interesting though is the inclusion on AIM-9X's in the kit so these will be used on my F-15C/E in the future!
You will also see the burner can and Wheeliant Wheels in this shot, both are simply stunning and worth every penny!
I have also started the Cockpit; this consists of a resin block which is frankly superb! If you have one of these ktis, just invest in one of these, you will not be disappointed! The resin block also fits like a glove and with the exception of removing the block off the underside, you will not need to carry out any major surgery as it is already done for you!
The kit wheel wells - Primed and ready to go. Note the joins need to be cleaned up on this one!
Upper fuselage - complete with conformal tanks. These fitted well but I found a bit of cyno acryli was needed to ensure they were glue in place as one one location pin is included which makes locating the exact spot difficult!
Just to show you the fit of the cockpit, as it stands at the moment!!
More soon guys
Also the top spine has a minor lip on it, where a little surgery and re scribing will be required.
