  1. Hi everybody, gone forward a little bit: - fuselage glued to wings - seams filled with Tamiya putty and sanded - glued and sanded p.e. parts - started painting the seat Here some pictures.
  2. Hi everybody, here some pictures of the fit test on the seat after removing the lower portion of the ramp. Also a picture of the next challenge: wings are glued to the fuselage, just with the need of a little putty, but there is an area that requires a lot more work, see the picture comparing the real plane and the model. More to follow Alberto
  3. Apparently the fit is good, but the seat is too toll for the pit and I will have to cut the portion marked in the picture, then test with the canopy and, in case file a little bit.
  4. Hi, many thanks for these pictures, they will be very helpful! May be I will consider to add actuation-leveres or, at least, I will try.
  5. Also, today arrived the new seat from Sparkit and the supersonic drop tank made by Matterhorn Circle. The seat is great, details are astonishing. The tank is just doing the job, look at pictures! Seat dimension are ok, I will only have to cut a portion of the ramp (is it called so?) in order to align it with the seat lower surface. More to follow, soon or later ... Alberto
  6. Hi everybody. I decided to glue the left side of the fuselage to the wings and compensate the seems with a little putty, not much really, so I was able to position the back panel. Also I did a first attempt to paint the ATAR 9C engine. According to photos, I should add inside a few green and some brown, I will see later how to accomodate that. Some picture here:
  7. OK, but I think it's still a good kit and probably the best in this scale.
  8. Correct. I'm trying to fit the cockpit first, then I have to take care of the step existing between upper wings and fuselage. Again aprox 2 mm of plastic to shave.
  9. The matter is that dimensions of side panel are wrong. I already filed away at least two mm from the bottom side and reduced the thickness, but still doesn't work, to day I will continue. I'm surprised for that because previous 1/32 kit from Italeri, the F-104G, went together without any problem. More pictures will follow.
  10. Hi, just a little upgrade on my wip: since yesterday I'm fighting to get cockpit elements to fit into the fuselage. First attempt is shown in following pictures. First two pictures are from the top, everything seems to be OK, but look at the following taken from the bottom:
  11. Many thanks for those photos of the real seat, will be of great help when I will start painting mine. In the mean time I found an other supplier of resin items, they look very nice and I decided to order one, see the enclosed link if you are interested in more details https://sparkit-models.com/en/cockpit/44-siege-mk4-jrm-pour-jaguar-a-et-e.html
  12. Hi everybody, today I finally received the kit from Isradecal, quite a nice one with very crispy details, specially on the exhaust. I also received the resin Mk-4 seat, still from Isradecal, but it looks a bit strange. In any case, now I can continue my build.
  13. Yes, it's going to be there as well! I posted here because I wanted to refer to issues you had with these parts.
  14. Hi everybody, today I finally received the kit from Isradecal, quite a nice one with very crispy details, specially on the exhaust. So, remembering what Kai mentioned above, I want straight to check the fit and, at least on dry, it seems almost ok.
