Look forward to this Ian. Unfortunately work is manic and I just have not had any model time since late last year. In the meantime I get my fix by watching you guys producing your magnificent results.

I've been looking at pictures of this one online. The instructions call out for a light grey colour but I've seen NMF on the very same aircraft on the box art. So not sure which one to do.

Finally made a start on this one, there's not much detail in the cockpit so I'm thinking of putting two figures In and have it in a flying pose. Also I'm going to paint it in NMF.

And I found these two pilots in the spares draw, they will do nicely for this one.

Just caught this Ian and I'm liking what I see


I am still looking for a Korean Jet and I was thinking the Shooting Star........ May have to re think this for my entry.


Sabres have been done and so has F51s so I'll have to put my brain to work.


I'll tag along if that's ok ( may get some ideas )


Regards


Robert

I really like the work your are putting into this Ian. :smiling3:


The additions of the pilots make the cockpit so much more interesting.

Pity you didn't get it Tony it's a simple kit not many parts, but some very nice detail. Although it's not Russian it's right up your street.

This is looking very nice and with the addition of the pilots gives it more realism.


I'm liking this a lot Ian
