  1. That's an excellent job, Tolga!
    Read that this kit is somehow challenging. This makes your effort even greater.
    All the best!

  2. Beautifully done, Tolga.
    Outstanding details and painting.

  3. Tolga, nice change of pace with a very tough kit to build. You saw, you built, you conquered. I did one of these and at the beginning wasn't too bad. But that rear fuselage section is a bear and the 100 piece (exaggerating) landing gear is over engineered. But once you finish, step back admire what you accomplished and yours is excellent. Just one of those kits that just got to be patient with. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Chuck
      Yes it needs several test fitting and applications before glueing especially on the exhaust section.
      Wish it was in 1/32, thus the result would be better than this.

      • That is exactly the problem I had more than anything was the exhaust nozzle would not line up or fit for anything. It was one of the last things to attach in the final details were those darn nozzles.

  4. That's a great-looking Jag, and a pleasure to see your skill applied to a jet-age bird! Well done.

  5. Awesome Jag! How was the kit? Would you recommend it, or build it again?

    • Thanks Ramon
      The kit looks great in its box, but the real life is not so easy.
      There are a lot of small parts and fitting in some areas is too bad.
      I do not think to do another one.
      Wish it was in 1/32 scale.
