Next is the prop and some fiddlely bits, then the build part will be done. After that a handful of decals, since I painted most of them on, and weathering.

Ok got back to work. Painted the engines, and painted and attached the fuel tanks as well as connecting the main fuselage framing.

The engines on this kit are mini-model unto themselves. This is the rear engine and I am still short about 15% of the parts!

Sorry about the delay in posting here, got lost working on my 1/350 scale New Jersey and reading several books.

 

Since it was raining hard and when it does that I can not paint. the rain beats against the window I would open to vent paint fumes. So I did what any modeler would do ... started another kit!

This is the FA-18E Super Hornet by Revell in 1/48 scale. It is an average kit for Revell. Meaning decent molds some minor fit issues but with a little tlc can turn out a god model. I plan to build this one OOB.

Interesting how the wings are molded with the fuselage halves and the nose is separate and made to fit around the cockpit. Looking forward to seeing if this complicates the fit up front when you join them together.

The New Jersey got a second coat of grey paint. Looks a lot better now. Have been working on the FA-18 as well.

Right now the tails and wing tips are just placed on. Have some more seams to take care of before adding them.

 

 

Actually the nose fits easily, it was the air intakes that where the problem to get to fit well.
