In all the photos I've seen of this, i expected this one to be about the size of a Sabre. When i first saw the box, i was a bit disappointed as i dont really have the space too many of the bigger fighters. Thankfully it spans 1/2" smaller that a Tomcat!!!
However it is as chunky as i am!
With every build i hope that i am showing i am listening and learning from what you guys are telling me. With this one i managed to drop 10psi off my spraying pressure while working with thinner paint. Some areas were flatted a bit with micromesh and a very nice sanding sponge i have. On the down side though, i went back to hand painting the main canopy part as I've damaged a couple recently while trimming the masking especially when there are no moulded frames to follow.
Anyway, this is how she stands today with a couple of touch ups, some decals to add and a top klear coat to come and hope i can finish by tomorrow.
