We'll - I've been at this for awhile, but might as well bring it into the conversation. I'll also preview here what I've got lined up next, as a "new start" for the Corona group build.
Here are a few pics of the work done on the IDF Kurnass 2000 and the Japanese EJ Kai. I've got to do just a smidge more clean up work, put the aerials on, and they're ready for paint stage.
Here's what the Kai will look like - this is a set of dry-transfer stencils. I bought the 2 ocean blue paint set from GS.
Here's where they sit this morning:
You'll notice putty lines - man, these Hasegawa kits that are designed to be built into a variety of versions from the same set of molds are not the best kits for good fit and no seams! Too many unusual part options, and horrible configuration part breakdown. I'll be glad to get back to an old Italeri F-4 kit, or perhaps the newer Academy or Airfix...
And here's my "preview of the next build in this series - I'll make it a separate post once I break open the box... I just love this ugly duckling!
