Starting to look like sumpin. Lots of scraping and sanding, but the plastic is soft so it goes fast!

  1. Looks to be a good start, keep us "in the loop". And it appears you'll have to do a little rearranging on that bench as the build progresses. lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Inspirational to say the least. Maybe after I finish my Hurricane, I'll break out my 1/32 Revell Typhoon and see what I can do with it. Keep up the good work.

  3. I'm jealous of those who build 1/24 and what's more have room to keep them ๐Ÿ˜‰ It looks impressive, the cockpit is awesome, and yes, keep us in the loop. Can't wait to see more.

  4. Man, that is coooooool ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. From what i see, a very good start, of a spectacular kit, good luck

  6. It certainly looks impressive, and your work so far is a good basis, but, are you sure you're going to have room on your workbench?

  7. Looks good so far Steven, I will follow this build with interest as I have this kit in the stash.

  8. Hi Steven.

    Having built this kit ( I can confirm there's a lot of scope for super-detailing. I also ran a WIP thread on the build last autumn, if it helps.

    Good luck with your build.

    • Thanks I'll take a look, sticking with OOB except for replacement canopy. Hard enough to get finished without duper-detailing

      • I had TWO canopies in my kit and both were damaged, also a few missing items. I think I had an early production model. Air fix replaced missing/damaged items but still annoying in middle of build having to wait a month for items to arrive that should have been in kit to begin with.

      • You get a cockpit like that OOB!? Not my scale, but I may have to try this kit just because it's so impressive! The Typhoon is a cool bit of kit as well. I'd love to hear one of those Sabre engines running! (Maybe when Kermit gets finished with his we all will be able to!)

        • You should see the detail on the engine! For anyone who wants to see more, the instructions are on the web in PDFs form check it out! I paid $116.00 for mine 1/24 th scale at 1/2 the price of a ZM 1/32nd

  9. Nice build so far, lots of detail. Just a suggestion, next photo shoot, it would add to the value of your build if you add some more ambient light to the photos. I "saved" your photos in photo shop, enhanced them (lightened), and wow, there's a LOT of detail and skill in your build. Just a thought...

  10. Looking good so far Steven. There is a lot of detail in that kit from what I have seen.

  11. Wow, looking great. Nice one. Can't wait to see it finished.

  12. There are so many parts Steven! Very Nicely detailed.
