    Very nice work!
  2. Wow, very impressive, beautiful work!
  3. Jeroen, yes helps immensely. The Mr. Surfacer 1500 will be the final quality control check but the Sharpie marker really helps bring any flaws out.

    Great review!
  5. Almost ready for the fun part! Had a little more trouble than usual blending in the inboard cannon covers, wish Hasegawa would have engineered this differently. Since the kit only comes with smooth tread wheels which weren't that common on the F-8's I went with the Eduard Brassin wheels which are really nicely detailed. Since the set comes with a separate tail wheel I decided to cut out the molded in wheel on the kit part which should look much better when finished. Just need to finish up the dashboard , glue the windscreen in and it will be ready for the first coat of primer and the HGW rivet set.
  6. Wow! This is truly state state of the art stuff!
  7. Thanks, guys! Unfortunately all but invisible once the cooling fan is installed but oh well!
