How hard can you go with after market.

I also have a pit from Aires.

So why dondt try to fit the quinta set on the Aires pit.

With a bit off trimmen

Now much better floor and other details than the pit from the box.

Looks good so far Mark !

I am pulling together the pieces for a Trumpy F-105 myself, but it will be an F-105F with Cutting Edge decals.

ResKit has some great looking pieces such as pylons and weapons, replacement tail fin and other stuff.

Now, they are doing an "all in one" upgrade which includes the intakes, main wheel bays, nose gear bay, and landing gear.

So, I will wait for that before getting started.

Watching you build closely !

I like what you are doing with the cockpit Mark. I am going to go a similar route with my F-model build.

The F-model looks very similar to the D in the front cockpit and the rear looks close to a D model.

I just ordered an Aires G pit and 2 D-model Quinta sets. It will be fun to bash them together.

Happy Modeling !!!!
